Thom Browne S/S 2017

Thom Browne S/S 2017

Scene setting: Ever the showman, Thom Browne set the scene for his S/S 2017 show by setting up a Greek bath-cum-runway, composed of an assortment of tiles that created a graphic, pixely effect.

Mood board: Browne sent out an array of models donning bulbous floral caftans. After a sequined goddess appeared, the models then stripped down to the collection’s looks – a series of dresses with tropical prints featured collared shirts, shrunken jackets and serious ties that had been trompe l’oeiled onto them. After the finale, the sequined goddess turned into a living disco ball as the models took off their clothes, revealing bathing suits in Browne’s striped red, white and blue.

Best in show: Browne’s quirky and clever riff on his own tailored pieces produced a number of strong looks. A sequined dress with a green floral skirt, pink cardigan, and blue floral jacket trompe l’oeiled on it stole the show. A silk chiffon sherbet orange and pastel yellow dress had a vintage, yet contemporary feel.
