If you have heard of Thom Browne, chances are you know more about his eccentric menswear line and less about the otherworldly qualities he brought to the womenswear scene ever so graciously. Not one to trade incitement for ethics and solemnity, it’s no wonder Browne gained the title of America’s most provocative designer. Photographer An Le managed to capture the man behind the name, behind the reputation.
In the editorial shot for SCENE magazine, the American designer opens another gate into his wonderful world, accompanied by a beautiful selection of whimsical pieces, all part of Browne’s poetic fall 2013 collection. Dominated by rose motifs, blood red and a great deal of masculine influences, the garments manage to bring a taste of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland to the intriguing set.
Imagination, playfulness, chaos and harmony, it all hides deep inside the quizzical garments, letting people know more about Thom Browne than the designer would like to admit himself. Styled by Marcus Mateo, with hair by Dhiran Mistry and make-up by Jason “Sparrow” Willard, featuring models Natalie Keyser and Monika Borowska, you can witness An Le’s (www.anlestudio.com) complete shoot by pursuing the gallery.
