#SS18: Thom Browne Brings Gender Fluid To High-End Men’s Retail, “Every Single Skirt, Heel & Culotte” Watch

Yes, this Thom Browne Spring/Summer menswear show was last summer, I know, but Spring ’18 is just around the corner, and I want to get inspired.

Baby Thom Browne got a pair of his first pair of shoes 50 plus years ago. Pretty genderless bootees. And it’s apparently, a Browne family tradition to dip all Browne babies first pair of shoes in gold. Those gold shoes were at the center of this powerfully transgressive show. Browne said,

I like the idea that when you are a baby you wear pretty much the same clothing as your brothers and sisters. And I think that culture dictates which way and what kind of clothing you wear—but it is nice that you can pretty much do whatever you want.

I wanted them to look at the baby shoes, reminiscing back to the day it all started. When they could choose whichever path they wanted.“

As a grown-up, Browne has used traditional menswear tailoring in the most unexpected, non-traditional ways. Many models featured high-heels and skirts and in some Browne shows the way clothes are styled takes a back seat to eventual retail, but Browne insisted afterward that every single skirt, heel, and culotte in this collection will go on sale.

All of it is being offered. I think it looks amazing. It takes somebody with a lot of confidence to wear it, but I just feel like, Why can’t this be men’s clothes, too?

Exactly. Why not?
