Thom Browne Steps Into Womenswear

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Designers, News, Women,

Thom BrowneThom Browne has created his first full womenswear collection.

The men’s designer has dabbled in female fashion before - selling a capsule range in Barneys New York in 2007 and 2008 - but has now branched out by making a new line.

“This time I have more time to focus on it. For September, it will be a bit bigger than before, with more styles within the categories, but very focused. In the next couple seasons it will become a fully developed collection.”

The collection will sell at Barneys New York, Colette and 10 Corso Como Seoul and The Thom Browne shop. For the range, Brown has been inspired by his menswear roots, which he has incorporated into the clothes.

“It’s very focused on jackets and trousers and outerwear. I think it’s what people expect from me, very men’s-inspired women’s clothing. Grey flannel, navy cashmere. Good, all-American men’s wear influence, but fitting in a cool feminine way. I want it to be very understandable. Personally, when I see it on the girls I think it looks so good. I like the idea of men’s tailoring on girls. It’s very strong and sexy in a non-overt way.”
