When Thom Browne staged his 2009 fashion show at Pitti Uomo in Florence, few knew that the designer had planted the seed for his first licensing agreement. He had 40 male models moving in unison in a Fifties-era office — typing on identical typewriters; eating identical lunches, and all wearing the exact same uniform, right down to the bookworm spectacles.
Those opticals — crafted from metal with a horn temple — are now the starting point for Browne’s first eyewear collection with Dita Eyewear Inc., launching this fall.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
