David Harbour (“Black Widow,” “Stranger Things,” “No Sudden Move”) stars in a portfolio of images for Thom Browne, shot by Tina Barney at the iconic house Teviotdale in upstate New York. Through the images and film, Thom Browne references classic ideas of American painting, reinterpreting the expected in his own way, and showing his tailoring on different types of people. In this context, we are introduced to the core collection of Thom Browne men’s and women’s offerings.
Upon arrival at Teviotdale, we are greeted by a man (Harbour) and a woman (played by renowned artist Anh Duong) in the driveway of the grand, beloved home. The house is an extension of the couple. Its personified presence is a result of their long, caring relationship. This couple has been together through everything. He knows what she is thinking, and she knows what he will say before he says it. As we follow the couple into the house, they proceed with the quiet pattern of life. Room by room, we are witness to their companionship. They take care of the house and of each other. At times, they are silent, in their own individual worlds. But they always come back together.
When developing the project, Thom Browne was looking for a man and a woman who would bring their own identities to his men’s and women’s core offering. David and Anh are both true individuals: talented, confident, kind, interesting, sincere. The classic grey tailoring becomes their own. They reinterpret the clothing for their own lives, and in the clothing, they are true to themselves. Through the lens of iconic American photographer Tina Barney, they bring to life a unique chapter of the Thom Browne world.
