A swimming pool, a cat, and floral housecoats?! These elements all sound like the making of a suburban lifestyle but we would never think of finding them on a fashion runway. Leave it to Thom Browne to present something totally unexpected. His latest runway show on September 12th during New York Fashion Week was one of his most fantastical to date.
Models in vintage inspired pastel jackets walked a runway set designed to look like an abandoned pool. At the same time, a person in a giant cat head sauntered through the lovely ladies who eventually took their overcoats off to reveal dresses before eventually stripping again, this time to expose retro-style bathing suits. The same birds who made their debut in Browne’s last menswear show came to collect the cast off clothing before a singular silver siren posed in the center of the giant spectacle.
