Thom Browne’s runway show is always theater. For his men’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection just shown at Paris Fashion Week, gentlemen were decked out in Browne’s brand of distressed grandeur with tattered suitcases and their faces entirely hidden by bowler hats pierced with see-thru venting so, as not to trip down the catwalk. Models chosen for their physical attributes, minus faces this time around, I guess.
There was sort of loose Dorian Gray them, so the facelessness makes sense, as much as runway ever needs any exposition. I do love these clothes and they are SO well-tailored, as his stuff always is. It’s destroyed bespoke! Hey, did I just coin a new term? Probably not.
