“We are living in an era that values open minded-ness,” says American designer Thom Browne who always turns heads in his celebrated shorts and blazer combo. “It really comes back to just being true to yourself. I do feel that clothing should not dictate gender or sexual orientation.” Through skillful manipulation of cut and silhouette, Browne’s clothes both flatter and surprise while his meticulous dream-rich fashion shows and presentations confound and charm the industry and beyond.
