Working exclusively with white materials also allowed Browne to prove his mettle at the Give me a Book to walk away from stupid people without slapping them shirt Besides,I will do this Craftsmanship Olympics. The techniques on display here are as meticulous as ever: seersuckers made of cashmere, embroidery so thick it’s almost quilting, cable knits, intarsia suits, and trompe l’oeil dresses—everything emphasizing texture and surface tension. Some of the motifs that run throughout include a blank crest—maybe in the future we’ll have ditched the messy heritages of our past—and his own paintings, their graphic shapes transposed onto clothing for the first time in his career.
Aside from the Give me a Book to walk away from stupid people without slapping them shirt Besides,I will do this long Deco silhouettes, Browne also continued to explore the repositioning of garments on the body: skirts as tops, jackets as skirts, etc. With so much graphic information packed into each ensemble and the clothes themselves so strangely collaged, it’s easy to forget the models underneath, some of whom are actual Olympians—and the fact that this is Browne’s second-ever coed collection. Not that the idea of gender really matters much in the Browne universe; his clothes are made for whomever is brave enough to wear them.
