Thom Browne presents a theatrical production of priceless avant-garde tailorship in his 2014 Resort Collection. Impressive and to-the-fit, the bespoke tailor’s pieces look as if they were draped, cut and sewn exclusively for Russian model Tatiana Krasikova (pictured below):
What makes him so awe-inspiring
Browne masterminds the fashion world with a combination of structured design details and assembles each garment, literally, inside out. These details include, but are not limited to, his flawless and raw-threaded exposed seams, pleating, floral patterns, stripes and plaids. This collection is reminiscent of Alice In Wonderland meets Corporate America.
While you can’t miss the seriousness of Browne‘s pieces, his whimsical hand-painted striped tights and lace ankle socks mirror childhood and fittingly balances out provocateur vision. Overall, his structured collection is sleek — subsequently, without failing to be fun.
Browne‘s predominant use of neutral hues, complemented by rich kelly greens, are a sure hit. In retrospect, I really adore his striped tights with socks. Even though, it is traditionally cliché for humans a day over 6-years-old to wear socks and shoes — together. What makes it work? His sophisticated use of style. It will awaken the childlike aspects of its target audience. Well done.
