MYTHOLOGIES: Thom Browne’s Fall 2014 Menswear

Hype This!

Overheard: “When did Thom Browne get cool?”

That’s the wrong question. Perhaps a better one would be, When did Thom Browne dispense with his reservations and create the batshit crazy (only ever a compliment) Fall 2014 Menswear collection?

Style.com describes the presentation as a juxtaposition between hunters and hunted; WWD frames the presentation as an oscillation between classic British and Japanese influences. Perhaps Thom Browne is referencing traditional Japanese Noh theater of transformation, which begins with a extravagantly dressed and massively-sculptural mystical shite character who signals his new identity with a change in costume into a much more realistic dress. Perhaps the meaning is mutable and culturally relative; perhaps the designer Thom Browne intends to be intentionally vague. Perhaps, in the spirit of Roland Barthes, we as the viewers are assigning the myth of interpretation and influence to Thom Browne’s “bizarre, yet fantastic” spectacle. Highlights of the collection below.

    your post’s to be just what I’m looking for.

  6. Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  7. Because I’ve suffered through 30 days of not looking at porn, I
    can start again and this time I’ll have control
    over it. Unable to set boundaries on their own behavior, ADDers feel an intense need to continue
    forever whether it is on a work project or an involvement in a sexual enactment.
    An aspiring male escort should be handsome in appearance.

  8. This works by having the resin fall through one or several filters
    installed into the bottom of the pollenator. What you can and should do is look for your self because we know there
    are other great sources on the net. Sophisticated equipment, ample training and various restoration solutions can be handled effectively by smoke damage restoration companies.

  9. Insomnia is common in those who have recently moved house or cities, but this is temporary and more of an adjustment issue.
    To teach your brain that bed means sleep,
    you shouldn’t do anything else there. Although TCM is
    rapidly becoming more popular in the West, the recently reported incidents of contamination in products from China,
    ranging from pet food to toothpaste, have left many Westerners hesitant to use herbal remedies produced in China.
