Playing with Textures. Thom Browne AW16


If talking of drama, Thom Browne is the master of it, always. Staged in a faux snowy, secret garden, the nearly-couture designer played with textures and clothes, creating exquisite garments. Sewing together suits, he has created abstract skirts which chaotically overlapped mink coats, while the men’s ties were twisted into hats by Browne’s long-time collaborator, Stephen Jones. The pleated, signature-grey dress had a sense of Victorian night-gown, which gave us all a little hint that the designer looks nostalgically back at the fashion history (take the tweeds, which revive to a great surprise Coco Chanel – even Karl Lagerfeld would love to show off a line-up of so beautiful blazers!). Definitely, this ready-to-wear collection has a very unwearable, theatrical mood about it – however, there are few pieces which will surely sell well at Dover Street Market next season.






Would love to hear what you think!
