Designer Jose Duran featured in Vogue Italia

Dominican designer Jose Duran travels between his hometown, New York, and Paris, culling inspiration from different time periods, movements, and cultures. His men and womenswear collections, which date back to Fall 2008, show traces of African warriors, flamenco dancers, Grecian goddesses, and desert hunters.

Draped silk and jersey are his fabrics of choice, as seen in his most recent Spring 2011 collection. Duran put forth a bevy of army ready frocks, with a rich selection of asymmetrical dresses in red, black, and khaki. Safari wrap dresses were fixed with ribbon belts; voluminous gowns were affixed with thick metallic rope.
For men, tailored buttons downs and suits were proposed in body conscious silhouettes. Duran's visionary and adventurous pieces offer a delightful twist on contemporary design.
