Thom Browne - Menswear Autumn/Winter 2014/2015 Show in Paris (with itw)

At Thom Browne, the setting is always spectacular: trees and animals inhabit an ashy forest, made up of materials and colours from the collection. Animalistic hairstyles, from elephants to mice, dress-up this creature that is a man. Following these initial elements of surprise, we can spot the American designers trademarks: short suits, a pleated skirt and endless cut-off trousers. Everything revolves around grey and thick materials such as Prince of Wales, tweed and shearling with frayed seems. Hunters camouflage themselves with leafy prints and details (even on their faces), wearing in all-in-one, extra large ensembles reminiscent of David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust suit from the 70s.Interview:Thom Browne:It started three different ways because it was very important for me to start including a little bit of the art world into the fashion that I do and that was the reason for the installation, and then working with Stephen on the hats which I think were spectacular and then the collection itself: the mix between hunters and animals and a very simple story of how they interact.It is woven fabrics, it is jacquards, it is embroidery; it is a lot of different ways in which I interpret camouflage.
