The scene at the Thom Browne Fall 2013 collection showcase could be described as wintry and fantastical.

Male models were bound to bed frames whilst sporting the designer’s menswear pieces. This setting certainly set the ominous tone for the theatrical seasonal offerings to come. Browne’s signature grey suit was give extraordinary proportions, a statement on his exemplary tailoring ability. Each magical silhouette seemed an ode to classical fairytales and boasted a rope motif.

The designer’s intent was perhaps a statement on contemporary empowered female with the use of aggressive silhouettes and stark palette. Browne’s muse is one that transcends the realm of restrictive roles seen in traditional fantasy. The on-point combination of statement-making motifs with impeccable design authenticate Browne’s creative vision. It is perhaps this dedication of boundary-pushing that makes Browne and advocate for the true spirit this creative medium.
