The Daks Fall 2014 Collection is celebrating its 120th anniversary. The temptation when tasked with designing a collection for a brand with such a long history is to dip too heavily into the archives and end up with a mishmash of greatest hits.

The designer cleverly checked off all the boxes, appearing on lapels, fringes, tube beads, sequins and even bearskin, which certainly hits you over the head with heritage.

The creative director was at his strongest when restricting himself to camel knits, stretched extra long into slinky dress or in second-skin double face cashmere. The show captured the streamlined, refined attitude you associate with the brand and ended with a floor-sweeping knit gown inflated by a crinoline.
