IN FOCUS - Thom Browne
Despite the awe inspiring, tweed spectacular runway show, the new Autumn Winter Thom Browne collection is far from surrealist. Set the attention-grabbing gimmicks aside, it is easy to forget that Browne’s strength lies in creating tailored wardrobe staples. For example, the designers minimal shirts with their iconic striped armbands are one of the his most desired items. Go deeper than his extravagant shows and you find classic items with perfect attention to detail. It is the American flag that inspired the brands signature bar stripe finish seen on many items, whilst America's world famous varsity style, of sweatshirts and shorts, influence every Thom Browne collection. The designer may prefer a suit to shorts and t-shirt for instance, but he recognises the importance of comfort the modern day consumer each season. It is the heavyweight jersey material, used for his sweatpants and hoodies, combined with luxurious finishes such as a woven brand patch, a striped tackle and shiny metallic zips that seamlessly blend the brands expertise in comfort and tailoring.
