Blue Collar: Dunderdon Makes Fashion For the Working Class

Dunderdon's SS09 lookbook just landed in our lap today, and we can't put it down. We've been a fan for a while of the work-wear inspired brand, and each season it gets better and better. For spring and summer you can expect a preppy twist, with basic and functional pieces abound. "Basic" and "functional" may sometimes sound like a euphemism for boring for you pessimists, but let the pictures speak for themselves. This versatile, relaxed collection made of light and breezy fabrics like chambray, cotton poplin and jersey, and linen has roots in that perfect mixture of farm-girl toughness and sweetness. The men's clothing walks a fine line— it's gentelmanly but not formal or uptight. Simplicity in design and an eye for slouchy and loose tailoring make these perfect for a day at the park, but still sturdy enough to take a beating.
