“Over the past three or four years, I’ve been exploring the idea of putting men in stereotypically women’s clothes. It has become normal to me. There are almost as many skirts and dresses as trousers in this collection. It just feels natural and right and authentic to the collection”, Browne told WWD.
The collection explored the brand’s signature elements with a playful and childish spirit, precipitating the designer, and us with, in the tender memories of his childhood, notably through the motifs of kites and propeller planes – toys, he explained, that his parents gave him and his siblings to encourage the idea that anything was possible.
The gender-blurring range also matched age-old American sack suits with traditional fabrics such as gingham, madras plaid, seersucker, intarsias and cotton-linen blends.
The designer’s quintessential gray, white, black and navy tones dominated the collection, alongside pops of red that immediately catch the eye while a wide variety of bucket hats, top hats, boots and hybrid shoes showed the incredible creativity of the designer to offer offer up a new take on men’s fashion that mixed the formal and the casual in a very unique way.
