Local fashion designer Carlton Brown returned by popular demand to Santo Domingo last week for the 14th staging of Dominicana MoDA. His collection, labelled 'A Touch Of', was unveiled on Saturday, October 26 at Fortaleza Ozama.

A Touch Of…

Designer: Carlton Brown

Assistants: Fitzroy Burke & Robert Hall

The cadence of island life sets the tone for this modern iteration of the Carlton Brown male. Entirely occupied with pursuing his goals, he feigns indifference to challenges and focuses instead on life's blessings. A touch of orange, the creativity and agility to find the solutions, guarantee the win.

Muted and washed linens skilfully cut into sharp yet comfortable suiting. Broderie anglaise eyelet cotton shirting is de riguer. Collars are pared back into Nehru or crew notations. The traditional caftan shirt becomes body-conscious. Trousers and shorts tastefully highlight the thighs. Abstract prints reference the Caribbean environment; stripes in horizontal and vertical permutations are creatively disrupted with a touch of orange.

The Caribbean culture is always strong in its ability to be agile. This is the Carlton Brown man, creatively winning and having an awesome time doing so!
