Suburban Extremes. Thom Browne SS19


 Thom Browne took suburban, summer garden party style to the extremes. Gingham checks, whale and boats themes, dad ties and ridiculous headwear got exaggerated and couture-ed. Every sleeve is hand embroidered with the season’s motifs (like starfish or bananas), while the masks refer to old-school horrors happening in the calm, silent outskirts. Thom Browne rarely does anything usual and his creativity is far, far from the real world problems. But, noting all the absolutely fantastic craftsmanship involved in this line-up, it’s hard to look at the models struggling in killer heels, tied up with corset-like strings and strangled by all that uncomfortable excess. As Cathy Horyn wrote in her review for The Cut, it’s “silly”. Still, other than that, Browne’s spring-summer 2019 offering is full of fantastic garments to appreciate and cherish.
