The Thom Browne Spring 2013 collection was a poetic emancipation of color and structure reminiscent of modernist German aestheticism.
Naming Oskar Schlemmer an influence for this season, Thom Browne has created a lyrical ode to complex avant-garde distinction. Schelmer was a master of radically progressive ideals that revered the body's architectural form. This influence is seen in the structural component of each garment that toys with levels, bold shoulders and bulbous silhouettes.
The color palette fluctuated from monochromatic to print and color overload. This spectral variation is an allusion to the emancipation Browne himself as a designer. Despite the theatrics of his inspiration, the detailing in the collection epitomized Browne's prep DNA with his signature whale prints and gingham separates. A fantastical show of sartorial novelty, this Spring 2013 collection was a decadent fest for the starving eyes of those who crave Browne's sublime vision.
