Metallic Gingham Menswear
The Spring 2013 Thom Browne Collection Boasts a Surreal Twist

Layered gingham, silver coated shoes and knee high socks are all oddities attributed to the Spring 2013 Thom Browne collection that recently debuted in Paris.

Style.com’s Tim Blanks, a noted authority in menswear, describes the collection as “preppy-on-acid.”

A mix of dizzying kaleidoscopic color is incorporated into the prints as a fresh take on the classic spring rejection of neutrals. Browne takes it one step further by creating long wingtip brogues that were dipped in real silver to accent the knee high socks sported by the body painted models. The collection is decidedly non-human.

Although it may be a tall call for most men to pull off knee highs and silver body paint, inspiration for next Spring’s menswear definitely has a silver lining.
