“This collection is definitely a precursor to what you will be seeing for fall,” said Thom Browne. Stripped of the conceptual fare he favors for the traditional seasons, pre-fall showcased wearable clothes with an extraordinary attention to detail. Browne began with an eye on jackets, which ranged from boyish cropped styles that layered beautifully over his signature drop-collar blouses and pencil skirts, to more unstructured sack shapes that offered a nice sense of ease among the ladylike wares. Fabrics played a key role: men’s tie fabrics were cut and spliced for a detailed seamed dress, and whimsical mixes of Prince of Wales checks, herringbone, houndstooth and tweed invigorated traditional top coats and slim trousers.
