fall collections, new york: thom browne

quirky, experimental & over the top- the thom browne collections are always a sight to see. this season, browne capitalizes on his love for plaid, plaid & more plaid. a gang of printed looks were seen on the runway as the models walked with feathered lashes & head covers. as the collection progressed past the show opening, simplified styles made a mark & showcased the true style sensibility that is most true to browne’s skills of construction & design. elaborately layered coats in grey, volumized dresses & heavy knitwear were seen as the collection introduced concepts that used fur & wool. the three stripe browne signature was clearly highlighted & even done in colored fur within the collection as handbags, shoes, gloves & ties were noticed packed into the awe-inspiring womenswear.  of strict style in outrageous form, i really loved the vision & admire the direction taken this fall. in contrast to what was shown for browne’s menswear collection in paris, his vision seems stunningly powerful & thoughfully developed. i value the thom browne collections as an exaggeration of traditional style; in many ways it allows you to look & understand something very familiar & challenges your perception, creatively.

avant garde american classicalism is an aspect of design i’ve come to closely associate with thom browne. showing for his first season in paris, the thom brown collection was presented through a lavish show that showed models with painted faces settling at a large extended dinner table. over the top use of plaid with use of wool & kilts was seen in the collection which was cohesive from start to finish. as an award winning designer, thom browne is a menswear designer of distinct style & sharp tailoring. the collection is a great added dimension to a men’s style & is classically american. strong direction, distinct style.
