PFW: Thom Browne Spring/Summer 2017 Collection




Whether you’re familiar with Oscar-nominated black comedy Birdman, you can understand why Thom Browne’s masked silhouettes following each other was an instant reminiscence of the movie’s character. In Alejandro Iñárritu’s 2014 movie, the thoughts of former superhero actor (Michael Keaton) were reflected and unveiled through a funny yet strange human comedy. For the Spring/Summer 2017 Collection, Thom Browne opted for a surprising show, hiding features behind a pair of gloves, a bird headpiece or a pair of white sunglasses: only the slender bodies and the textured clothing mattered, moving along in a rhythmical cadence.

Indie movie Frank also popped in mind in this Thom Browne’s show: in Lenny Abrahamson’s comedy-drama film, Frank – interpreted by Michael Fassbender – hides behind a huge cartoon-like mask, concealing emotions and doubts, owning the stage and intriguing both audiences and viewers. As surprising – or frightening – as the masks can be, Thom Browne’ Spring/Summer 2017 Collection kept us focused on the frayed blazers, paneled pieces and patent items presented. With the clothing carrying the meaning of the collection, the Parisian audience was led to a fantasized world where shark prints met flower embroideries and where white and pink tweed jackets were everyone’s new favorite. Between dreams and reality, you choose your side for the next season.
