Dušan RTW Spring 2019

Understated luxury is the code word for Dusan Paunovic’s collection, constructed from high-end fabrics that are the building blocks for his cathedral of minimalism. For spring, the Serbian-born designer worked in a muted color palette of neutrals, working a raw-edged beige and cream herringbone linen, for example, into an elegant yet relaxed spaghetti-strap dress.
Superlight cashmere and silk knits, wide-legged linen culottes and Japanese hand-pressed lamé skirts, all staples in the Dušan vocabulary, were the backbone of the lineup. The outerwear was also strong, as demonstrated with a camel Loro Piana water-repellent cashmere coat with lining and contrasting Mao collar in white neoprene.
His patchworks of supersoft silk scarf prints in a palette of navy, forest green and dusty pink, used on flowing pants and sleeveless tops with a simple tie at the back of the neck, worked a treat.

Dusan RTW Fall 2017

Dusan Paunovic’s sober aesthetic bordered on drab this season, striking a monastic tone. The focus was on working with luxury fabrics, Paunovic explained, and not on seasonal fashion. “There’s no novelty here,” the designer said without apology.
The modest wardrobe on offer was very covered up, thanks to oversize tailoring that left more-than-a-little room to breathe.
New materials included waterproof technical cashmere for raincoats — supplied by Loro Piana — and chiné sweaters that had a nubby look, but were exceptionally soft to the touch.
The Dusan woman is anything but a show-off: A subdued patchwork coat stitched from woven scarves was the closest thing to a statement piece.
This is a low-key universe with an arch, intellectual bent — though one might question the financial logic of shelling out $ 788 for a plain white T-shirt from the brand.
