For the Thom Browne Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection, the design house delves into the late baroque and rococo fashion for inspiration. The women's collection features silhouettes with robust hips that mimic the wired crinoline frame of the era, three dimensional textures and floral embellishments. Utilizing a predominantly grey shade palette for the Fall 2018 collection, Thom Browne does not hold back on expressive detailing and the iconic silhouette forms of rococo fashion.
During the presentation of the Ready-to-Wear garments, the design house converted its showroom to embrace an art studio aesthetic with its hardwood floors, surrounding mirrors and easel props. With the space, as well as the collection, Thom Browne pays tribute to "Vigée Le Brun" and what her vision might be for women's fashion in the 21st century.
