Tom Brown prepares us for his unified Paris show in March, gradually blurring the line between women and men.
Tom Brown is full of projects: an art exhibition at Art Basel Miami, the opening of a new headquarters in Manhattan and the first joint show to be held in Paris next March. All of this has gradually blended into the designer's off-season collection, which serves as a bridge to the upcoming show, in which Brown will combine the men's and women's collections. The lookbook of the Pre-Fall 2020 collection just demonstrates how the fashion designer is gradually blurring gender boundaries, although these images cannot be called androgynous.
Brown himself says that he has created a number of elements that suit both women and men equally well. We are talking primarily about jackets and coats, with exaggerated shoulders, decorated with patch pockets, combined with oversized high-waisted trousers. However, this is far from the only theme of the collection. The designer explores classic 1920s US fashions, hence the implicit but still significant references to the atmosphere of The Great Gatsby, which we can see in the handcrafted tweed low-rise skirts and argyle-inspired wool sweaters. And, of course, the collection includes Brown's favorite animalistic applications! This time, elephants, lions, zebras and giraffes.
