Thom Browne recently debuted its Fall 2022 runway collection in New York City. The season’s collection invites onlookers to embrace their inner youth and step into Thom Browne’s adult toy shop, where 500 made to order teddy bears were assembled to bring to life everyone’s fondest childhood memories in epic proportions.
This series continues to see the designer’s playful rendition to classic suit tailoring, this time bringing forward an eclectic use of mixed materials to piece together unlikely shapes for unique silhouettes. Pops of vibrant orange, yellow, green and blue are used throughout the collection to emphasize the playful theme and handiwork in each piece. Thom Browne’s classic tweed tailoring is elevated with shades of grey layered with silk mogador jacquards in its collegiate, red, white and blue hues. The iconic tones are paired with bursts of gold, green and orange to bring an additional eye-catching highlight to the collection.
Handcrafted cashmere knits continue to bridge the heritage fabrics with resonant silks. Accessories are heavily inspired by childhood toys and play off of the youthful set that saw a spiral of paper dolls, a jumbled Rubik’s cube, a rocket and a cluster of puzzle pieces. The footwear took design inspiration from alphabet blocks while clutch bags came in the form of cars, patchwork lobsters and Thom Browne’s iconic daschund hector. – hypebeast
