goddamnit, #thombrowne ...

that sentence ends in "i love you," because the more thom browne i see on the runway, the more i love him.

working in an arguably "accessible" menswear environment, i tend to gravitate toward the more wearable runway fare for everyday purposes, mostly to get the point across with as few what-the-fuck-style faces as possible. which is why it's so refreshing to see actual art on the runway. you won't see this little gem in barney's anytime soon, because this is a showcase of aesthetic, not a catalog pre-order.

not that i at all dislike thom browne's in-store line, because i consistently love his suits.

but this is about expression and doing exactly what he feels like doing. his past several seasons have been satirical juxtaposition of masculinity and femininity, smashed together in a somewhat comical but no less serious manner, and he's dead on every time.

he's made me add a qualifying "except when thom browne does it" clause to more than one statement. por ejemplo: "I hate nautical..." or "Clown plaid looks stupid..." (though, to be fair, i can say the same for gaultier in regard to the former.)

so my point is this: i love you, thom browne, whether you are over-plaid-ing or shoulder-padding or tacking on a little something to protect those crown jewels -- i freaking love you.

so i leave you with this link to my pinterest board of some favorites from SS14.
