Thom Browne, honored with the CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year Award in 2016, 2013 and 2006, the GQ Designer of the Year in 2008 and the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award in 2012, can take the credit, in almost 15 years of career, for having subverted the codes of men tailoring and classic wear, combining rigor with irony. The same for his accessories collections: next to geometric tote bags, brightened up only by contrasting diagonal stripes, minimal backpacks and briefcases for old times’ businessmen, appear playful figures, made of pebble grain leather, that reflect an irreverent attitude and a predilection for surrealism that has always characterized the designer’s creations.
