As you can see from the name, “DUKE” aims to create not only charming clothes but a proud attitude toward the world. People who wear the duke should be a real duke in their heart. Little girls always want to be treated as a price and be protected forever, but a mature woman should know how to face this world bravely and achieve themselves as well as men can do. The clothes of duke help show the confidence of them in an elegant and luxurious way.
This spring, DUKE aims to show the classic oriental style, which created mainly by the design of sleeves. In the ancient Chinese, women usually wear a kind of clothes with big sleeves. In the eastern poems, ladies show great charm when their hair and sleeves fly in the breeze. And every time they change their posture, the sleeves shade different part of their body hence embellish their figure and make them more mysterious.
