Philippe Dubuc: Putting Men Front and Center

For his spring/summer 2016, Philippe Dubuc sets the tone with a couture spirit set against the backdrop of staged scenery. Basics are deconstructed with an eye for quality and precision and tone-on-tone trompe d’oeil effects continue to be the unique architectural signature of the designer.

Looking washed, coated or dusty, the line focuses upon neutral shades of concrete, khaki and charcoal. As for fabrics, they alternate between rough and smooth textures creating a line that shimmers with brilliant contrasts. Brushed cottons, faded linens and grainy canvas mix to create a minimalist, somber universe.

Dubuc proposes a new vision of the perfecto or safari jacket, adorning it with visible clasps, military stripes or pressurized pockets. Dress pants are also redesigned featuring a dropped crotch and nonchalantly paired with multi-layered, featherweight sweaters.

Philippe Dubuc refines his designs down to their simplest lines, highlighting the masculine silhouette by capturing the essence of couture in a brilliant and understated manner.
