Fashion Greats at Home: Thom Browne Is “Focusing On What Can Be Done”
Like most creative industries, the fashion industry has taken a huge hit during the coronavirus
Like most creative industries, the fashion industry has taken a huge hit during the coronavirus pandemic—and some of the biggest names in fashion are no exception. With a new year beginning and the end of the pandemic in sight, Vanity Fair is catching up with 12 fashion greats, as they recommend their go-to items for quarantine, and their hopes for the year to come.
“I am focused on looking forward to the new year, especially focusing on what can be done and forgetting about what cannot…” Thom Browne told Vanity Fair late last year. It had been a busy year for Browne, from collaborating with Samsung for the launch of the Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne edition to developing his childrenswear collection, which launched in January. For his work, Browne told Vanity Fair last year, he likes to “take things that are classically referenced or understandable from the past and reintroduce them.” Since launching his namesake brand in 2001, he has truly redefined tailoring, and has become famous for pushing the extremities of conventional design.
In all the time he’s spent at home in the past year, Browne has been enjoying the creative writings of his partner Andrew Bolton, the Curator of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and spending time with his dog Hector, who served as the inspiration for the iconic Thom Browne Hector Bag. Ahead, a few other things that Thom loves that will make spending time at home feel chicer than ever.
