This summer the dude & the duchess draws inspiration from the 60s, using solid color combinations to complement their simple and sophisticated retro style for the geek and the chic.

dude & the duchess rides on three main accents this season - Yves Klein blue, burnt orange and juniper green to color their collection with clarity and sophistication. These tones are matched against classic neutrals like beige and tan blend with pale gold and bleached sand to echo timelessness.

The dude, this season, features patterns and graphic formations that appear in unexpected places to create a striking finish. The dude also introduces a tailored fit alongside its 'regular' and 'slim' cuts.

On the other hand, the duchess embraces an uncomplicated style. This season's offerings include pretty blouses, pussy bows, sultry split backs in ultra-fine chiffon georgette, cotton twill and viscose.

The duchess' skirts are sleek and structured in classic styles such as peplum, draped, and the evergreen A-line. The duchess' dresses are presented in the form of fluid one-pieces, dainty lace dresses, and our personal favorite - a striking Yves Klein blue peplum dress (in the picture below - also available in black).
