Runway: Thom Brown, Fall 08
Have to say it. I don’t get this collection.
I know Thom Brown has been talked about as “the savior” of mens fashion, but his collection is just plain stupid. Fine, the simpler pieces may make sense and yes I can’t deny his amazing ability to make a wonderfully tailored jacket, but the high-water flood pants and bermuda suits this dude is pushing out are just ridiculous. Who wears this stuff besides Thom and his models?
Also noted is the model in the feather jacket. What the f*ck is that thing and why would anyone in their right mind ever wear it? I’ve met Thom before and as much as I love who he is in person his collection of unwearable, prissy wear is just plain silly. Hate to say it, but where are we without a little bit of honesty. Remember Indies, just because something is “different” from the norm, doesn’t mean it’s good fashion.
P.S. If you do choose to expose your pasty ankles and knees, please apply some of that tanning lotion or get a tan. No one wants to be blinded by your UV free wobblers.
