Thom Grey (Thom Browne’s Youthful Spin-Off)
With all of the talk revolving around Thom Browne’ s progressive decision to create a capsule collection geared towards contemporary sportswear, I decided to research the step forward and to my surprise found very little on the designer’s decision. The collection “Thom Grey” will be the first time, the conventional Thom Browne look is merged with an All-American aesthetic of sportswear, designed for the mature adolescent market. From the image above, the collection will serve as a staple change in the fashion market, where fashion houses are moving in the direction of placing the generational youth, as the muse of the industry. Retailers are reportedly already in line to back the collection, including: Harrod’s and Barney’s New York to name a few, as well as boutiques in both Seoul, Beijing and Hong Kong. As a fellow lover of the Thom Browne aesthetic, it will be amazing to see what the collection will entail. The “dandied” heart will just have to wait. Release not disclosed as of yet.
