Death Becomes Him

by Eyal de Leeuw | 26.01.15

Fashion is a mirror of our life; it expresses our darkest wishes and desires and always reflects the different stages of life. Thom Brown 2015 fall/winter collection was recently presented during Paris fashion week, while creating a dark and morbid theatrical moment.

103178_960nStyle.com reports that the inspiration was the title of the current Costume Institute’s exhibition: Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire. But Thom Browne and his team did not go there at all. No preconceptions for the creation of a new collection, just the title.

A requiem for a suit.
