Styled By FADER: D.S. Dundee

London-based D.S. Dundee is a proper Anglo name that sounds as old as the British Isles themselves, but the truth is, the company is not one of those lauded, tweedy English fashion brands that has been around since the 19th century. This is a good thing: it’s D.S. Dundee’s fresh color sense and youthful attitude that makes them so attractive to begin with. “We play on the idea of heritage, sure,” says designer Elizabeth Reeds. “But in a way that’s actually contemporary and relevant rather than fuddy-duddy.” That means classic fabrics that are used playfully and with a sense of humor: typically snooty vests are rendered in baby pink, traditional English parkas in creamsicle orange.
