Thom Browne's unwavering commitment to a narrative-driven, imaginative approach to fashion echoes in his designs and we love him to bits.
Thom Browne's Fall 2023 collection is a work of art, structured into three captivating acts. The first act showcases tweed overcoats with exaggerated shoulders, layered over sleek suits and ties. The models march in synchronized clockwise motion, evoking the image of corporate drones with their clock-adorned briefcases or dog top-handle bags, creating a surreal and thought-provoking scene. In the second act, Browne injects playfulness into the collection with intentionally mismatched prints, whimsical handkerchief bustles, and cleverly pieced two-piece looks adorned with paisley waistbands. The third act is a mesmerizing clash between the corporate and the playful, as the grey suiting is deconstructed and collaged, unveiling unexpected and daring elements underneath. It's a bold departure from traditional fashion norms, a creative breakdown of the first act's structured aesthetic, and a stunning finale that pushes the boundaries of sartorial innovation.
LOVE, LOVE LOVE.
