Loving…Thom Browne Fall 2011

Thom Browne’s Fall 2011 show was a plethora of opulence and 18th century fashion porn. If you’re like me and love breeches, Thomas Jefferson-esque wigs, plaids, capes, and top hats, then you’ll love this collection. While a lot of the looks weren’t necessarily practical, the costumer in me was in sheer delight from all the historical nods this collection made to the era of hoop skirts and powdered hair…here are some of my favorites…

My only qualm with this collection is that Brown had the nerve to send one guy down the runway in a knit skirt/overall combo. It wasn’t the man in a skirt that bothered me…but it was the fact that it was a skirt with a bib overall front! Who (male or female) would wear that?! *Shudders

…the rest of the collection gets a design thumbs up from me though! See the rest here.
