Mr. Browne knows the value of theatricality, both in clothing and in how that clothing is presented to the public as a collection. Male models were blindfolded and bound with red ribbons to minimalist bedframes, as female models silently and slowly walked around them, caressing them with red roses.
Bitches, it doesn’t get more theatrical than that.
But let’s look past the show and at the clothes. Guess what? Still highly theatrical. Still oddly and hauntingly beautiful, evoking everything from Kabuki, to the Queen of Hearts and even a single red rose, in gown form, with Edwardian touches. It’s all romantic and stylized, which may be why it takes a moment for the impeccable craftsmanship to be noticed. We especially like the tailored jackets and dresses made out of men’s tie materials, just like the Thom Browne coat Michelle Obama wore recently during the inauguration. An eerily gorgeous and memorable show as well as collection.
