THOM BROWNE SS 16 – BY ALICE DEVELEY

Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,

Browne is the new black. Subversive, rebelling against casual trends, gloomy but deeply alive, Thom Browne is a dream came true. You might think at first that you’ve crossed over to the other side of the mirror like Alice in Wonderland. Models look unreal with pale complexion and black lips as if they were dark angels or characters coming from Tim Burton movies. Their well cut garments, black, grey or white with japanese landscapes and shadows of samurai seem straight out of fantastic feature films, but nevertheless everything is true. From the dark music which espouses the walk of the models to these last who have conquished the public, it was no longer a catwalk but a real artistic performance. As if the collection was recreating a modern and a fashion haiku, Thom Browne true to form with his goth universe has reunited the elegance and the originality in one harmony.

Best,

Alice
