Seriously, how cool was that collection? White Lining and Gold Buttoning. Timeless designs with a modern approach. The polka dot theme add a beautiful Comme des Garcons vibe to the collection. Perfect collection. The photos were shot by Tommy Ton backstage at the show. They are all genuine – nothing staged, just hanging around before the show starts. Relive 2010 Thom Browne through this coverage and share your thoughts on the collection below.
Robin Ahrens travels to India for a collections preview editorial in the Spring ’13 issue of Bergdorf Goodman‘s magazine. Baharat Sikka shot him in Thom Browne, Givenchy, Burberry Prorsum, Jil Sander, Lanvin and much more. Baharat Sikka does a great job capturing the clothes while managing to catch the india-vibe with all its facets. It’s pretty interesting, because you never see those clothes in these surroundings, in india generally. It makes it the best editorial I’ve seen so far, the trending colours in contrast with indias blurred dark colours, pure perfection.
Presenting to you the Thom Browne Colour-Blast-Make-Everyone_arround_you-happy-pattern. This one is a must-have for everyone who tries to spread good vibes, especially now, when the winter still overrules the spring-time. The shirt features a button down front, the feel-good multicolor check print all over and a button down collar. In the hands of Thom Browne suiting is not only impeccably cut, but also exceedingly fun. A traditional tailored design, these shorts are produced in a bold gingham check, creating a must-have summer style. The Bag has the typical Thom Browne american preppy aesthetic. Impeccably constructed from crisp wool, a look inside the bag reveals the contrasting lining and the neat French seams. The bag is pretty essential, not too extravagant, which makes it the perfect spring backpack on earth.
TOKYO. Since Japan is the number one market for the designer it only made sense to open the first Thom Browne flagship store outside of the US in Tokyo. Located in the Aoyama district, the store will open its doors this Saturday. He places no sign on the outside just a small door which leads into a cold, symmetric interior that perfectly represents the vision of the designer. The space was originally occupied by 10 corso como and the guys responsible for this incredible job translating a brands image and vision into space were none other than Masamichi Katayama and Wonderwall.
THOM. Browne presents the official Lookbook for the Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Keeping things simple, the emphasis is kept on the clothing.The collection offers a wide range of rainbow-colored pieces along with wale and lobster trousers and some clean tuxedos. The collection overall is very cheerful and makes you happy just by looking at it. One of my favourite Thom Browne collections so far.
OKINI. The Thom Browne SS13 collection finally hit the oki-ni online store. Thom Browne takes us on holidays with sailor patterns alongside embroidered Lobsters on the pants. Colourful patterns and slim cut polo shirts. See what the designer has in stall for us this season.
THOM BROWNE. Rules for proper suit usage to prepare you for not getting embarased while wearing expensive suits.
#1: “Only the middle button on the jacket should be buttoned when you are wearing it closed.”
#2: “The pocket square in the breast pocket should be just peeking out (no more than 1/8 of an inch).”
#3: “The last button on the cuff of the jacket should be left unbuttoned.”
#4: “The button-down collar of the white oxford shirt should remain unbuttoned.”
#5: “Please do not iron the oxford shirts after washing.”
#6: “The trousers should be worn high-waisted so that the cuff of the trouser falls above the ankle.”
#7: “The neckties have been pretied, but please remember to keep the knot very tight when tying the necktie.”
#8: “The necktie should be worn long, with the tip of the tie tucked into the waist of the trousers.”
#9: “The tie bar should be clipped so that it falls halfway between the collar of your shirt and the waistband of the trousers.”
#10: “The shoes should be worn without socks.”
PARIS. ThomBrowne opened his fall ‘13 men’s collection in Paris with quilted pants and a fur, pseudo-bolero look that set the tone for the luxe abstraction that was to follow. Unlike his previous shows, a clear theme wasn’t totally obvious. Christian crosses could be found throughout. The collection continued, in at least fifty shades of gray (plus navy), notably in sure-sell briefcases and eyewear, which seems to be doing very well for the label.
GAMME BLEU. “What would happen if Braveheart came face to face with a closet full of Moncler puffer jackets? His pleat-back kilt would suddenly sport wooly padding; his animal-skin cloak would be ditched for more thermal-friendly quilted plaid outerwear. Then he’d grab a pair of ski poles instead of a sword while running out the door and off to battle. The war, of course, is on the snowy slopes, and no one but American designer Thom Browne thinks of that battleground in such creative terms. Who else could conceive of plaid sleeping bags unzipping around a man’s shoulders? A two-piece suit made from a million-ply cable knit? Or a quilted comforter poncho? Browne has created a captivating fantasyland for any Medieval Scottish knight, but he’s also managed to design pieces that no modern man currently has in his closet.” – J.J. Martin of Wallpaper.com. I guess noone couldve said it better.
