Summer pursuits at Thom Browne

New York: Although Thom Browne has a happy knack of creating an extraordinary performance, he always manages to infuse his masterful tailoring skills in to the drama. This Spring 2015 was no exception. The scene was set in a scented, box-hedged lawn surrounded by quintessential summer pursuits and so ensued the procession of exquisitely cut silhouettes. Browne employed master milliner Stephen Jones to artfully create ‘headgear’ to complement each outfit. Patterning came in the way of embroidered flowers, psychedelic floral motifs and appliques. Classic cuts in traditional materials, such as a 3-piece cropped men’s suit, tweed jackets, skirts, and topcoats worn over full skirts, were treated to floral embellishments – some – deconstructed. This was Thom Browne at his sartorial best. – Lizzy Bowring
