Death Becomes Himby 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.
The mourners’ headpieces were brilliantly designed by milliner Stephen Jones and the show’s scenario was about a character named Michael, who lives and dies in complete harmony with himself, and is then honored in death by his friends and relatives.
Style.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.
