The Thom Brown Effect


This is an example of how the usually alienating conceptual fashion pushed by Thom Brown can be readily accepted in a more wearable, practical way. Without a doubt, this very New York ethos is captured best by altamira, but it also is a signal to American clothiers everywhere.

While many designers are flirting with fuller cuts, especially in European markets who have been saturated with slim everything, the Americans lag in adopting these slim lines and have just gotten over the full cuts that Europeans are curious for.

I am not sure whether Thom Brown is truly the savior of American fashion, or the New York scene, but I think he offers a way to express that American way that might be less alienating than say Ralph Lauren and more in line with European sensibilities than say Michael Bastian. Thoughts?
