Thom Browne Fall 2020 - Runway Review
March 1, 2020
If it's a Thom Browne show, then it must be a spectacle of the highest order. For fall, and the designer's first unisex show, this mannish delivery evoked Noah's Ark and featured models, in pairs, proselytizing gender-fluid pinstripes in a winter wonderland. Following a handful of models in comical animal face masks, models appeared in twos, passing through large wooden doors on the runway evoking "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe." Fashion-wise, the zany designs were in true TB spirit: meshed multicolored stripes, lozenge-shaped argyle checks and white-laced snow boots. The childlike irreverence in Browne's zootopia was a delightful repertoire on mixed tweeds, checks, windowpanes, patchworks and pinstripes. The results were pure magic.
