New York menswear designer Mark McNairy went buck on his latest line for S/S ’13, melding dapper downtown weekend prints with a refined uptown streetwear mentality — a New Amsterdam, indeed. So who better to model but lookbook figurehead Danny Brown, the rapper and a fashion maven (witness his hashtag/rap ad-lib #style)? Crispy Hamptons fare goes great with the asymmetrical-headed Detroiter ̬ the seersucker shortsuit with bowtie and khaki polkadot trousers are perfect looks for transitioning from day (beachside pig roast) to night (invite-only party at LeBain). Brown’s most often seen in wild Jeremy Scott duds — God bless his Adidas shitkicker look at SXSW this year — but it’s nice to see Brown in cleaner looks that don’t betray his sense of flair. More, please! (And check out the rest of the photos at Dazed Digital.)
