Discover Thom Browne Spring Summer 2019 menswear collection presented on Saturday June 23rd, during the recently finished Paris Fashion Week. Playing with scale and combining the normal size with exaggerated proportions, Thom Browne shows us the world through TB lenses.
This and THAT. Normal scale and ANOTHER SCALE.a jacket and a JACKET, a shirt and a SHIRT, chinos and CHINOS. An anthology of true american preppy – a defining trait of the world through Thom Browne lenses – blown up to ridiculous proportions. The seersuckers, gingham checks, oxford stripes, rugby stripes are magnified just as the light blues, sun yellows, kelly greens and pinks are saturated. shoes gain platforms, mini gets maxi. bowler hat and round glasses to seal it all. The ordinary and the couture: what’s screen printed turns into intarsia when exploded, stitches change into crystal embroidery, wools become mink. the blowing up is both literal and metaphorical, using sartorial finesse as a tool. Altering proportions as a matter of virtuoso skill. – from Thom Browne
