With a fashion show halfway between a Geisha-themed jubilee and a gothic masked ball, Thom Browne surprised the audience during last Paris Fashion Week. In New York though, the brand sang a different tune, focusing on the essential piece of every man’s wardrobe: the tailored suit. But as Thom Browne goes beyond the half-measure, the brand needed one thing, one particular detail that could make the difference.
It’s now all done with the cropped trousers, inspired from 1950’s grey sartorial ensembles. As if the silhouettes came straight from a Mad Men set, they turned their stark and dull suits into an interesting modern version. Just a look at the title of the Spring/Summer 2016 show – The Officeman, and we understand the twist of casual easiness Thom Browne always aims at delivering.
