Thom Browne Spring 2016: New York Fashion Week.
I didn't make it out to New York Fashion Week this season for the first time in a long time, but never fear! We have the interwebs full of fun NYFW photography ;-)
One of the coolest, most unique shows I've been seeing a lot of photos of is Thom Browne Spring 2016. It's like a cross of Japanese school girl uniforms and Alice In Wonderland. Usually, most designers who put together a collection of blazers and skirts run the risk of having it come across as boring, but not Thom Browne. First off, lets talk about the hair ... it was sooooo good. There was also gorgeous boater hats by Stephen Jones. The hats and hair are already immediate eye catchers that make the show as a whole more interesting.
About the clothing ... as I said prior it looked like a Japanese school uniform but the fabric, prints, embroidery, and layering makes all the difference. I love the use of pleats in this collection. There was also a bit of gingham and floral patterns. Some of the items are wearable every day and some maybe not so much. The color scheme was black and gray with a dash of pastels too. I love the balance of the collection however and would absolutely rock some of these pieces in a heartbeat.
Thom Browne is known to put on a show. He put together a one room school house at The Chelsea Gallery. There was also black composition notebooks on each chair. You have to love all the details. Magical and a little dark. Absolutely enjoyable to view.
What do you think about the collection? Do you have a favorite piece?
