Last night, at Manhattan's exclusive clubhouse The Norwood, director Lina Plioplyte screened her fifteen-minute documentary The Guts of Duckie Brown about Steven Cox and Daniel Silver, the duo behind the cult menswear label. Like a Noel Coward pair, the on-screen partners' bickering is more loving than most cinematic romantic professions. Perhaps one of our favorite moments of the doc is when the pair, seen below, is asked -- yet again -- the inspiration behind their latest collection. Apparently Duran Duran, The New Order, Charlie Chaplin and Coco Chanel are all somewhere in their collective brain, bounding around their heads and bubbling underneath the quirky, awkward knits and trompe l'oeil patterns they're known for. But more importantly, its the hysterical dynamic with which that interact with each other (blithely babbling over each other and sweetly quarreling) and the journalist (firing off the contents of their brains with a stream-of-consciousness and unapologetic freeness) that truly captures their guts.
