RUNWAY REPORT.....Paris Menswear Fashion Week Fall 2014: Thom Browne Pics + Runway Video






 Thom Browne Menswear Fall 2014--Paris Menswear Fashion Week Fall 2014



Sunday signaled the end of Paris Menswear Fall 2014 Fashion Week (and coincidentally the beginning of Haute Couture Fashion week Spring/Summer 2014) with the Thom Browne Fall 2014 collection...Browne is famous (or infamous) for putting on shows. Never mind that very few of the specific
clothes shown on his runway collections find their way onto the backs of many customers (or even into
stores); it's all about fashion as theater and well, showing his "inspiration". It all then gets merchandised in a way that will make it somewhat palatable for that UBER skinny shrunken suit-loving very wealthy dot.com hipster/actor/musician who can afford Thom Browne.






The Look: The runway--from looking at the video--reminded one of a desiccated landscape of animals looking ready to pounce and
trees stripped of all foliage. Models with headdresses of elephants, rabbit and elephants...as well as tattooed painted faces and mesh masks all wearing lots of gray tweets, plaids and checks. A Lewis Carroll book come to life--about Men's Fashion. The final looks were a Cirque du Soleil wet dream!



Colors: Gray.



Trends: Shrunken double breasted jackets, shrunken vests, cropped "high-water" trousers (all a Browne staple); mixing plaids, mixing grays.
