It can be said that Thom Browne marches to the sound of his own drum. For his Spring/Summer 2013 offering, he’s marching (or swimming) to the sounds of a “song” as blazers, outerwear and trousers alike are adorned with a whale pattern. Oh, monsieur! You slay me with you quirkiness and while the pieces shown might be a bit too full on, you have offered more accessible options for the consumer. Case in point:
The jacquard woven whale-patterned cotton-blend blazer ($1,650) in a subtle gray. Still a bit crazy but just enough sanity to make it okay for a day in the office or in line at the post office. Seriously, New York. We’ve got to work on that.
