Thom Browne Wants You to Wear Crop Tops Next Fall


Start doing your sit-ups now.

The blending of the traditional and the ridiculous has been the cornerstone of Thom Browne's oeuvre since he launched his ready-to-wear line in 2004. Each season, he takes the classic suit--a throwback to the slick Mad Men era long before the TV show revived the aesthetic--and deconstructs and re-jiggers it with a hatful of fantastical and ludicrous points of reference. This makes for an entirely laughable and enjoyable runway show--if not for the most commercial of collections. This season saw Browne promotes the businessman-meets-sex-dungeon look...something that may not be accessible to everyone who works on Wall Street, but a hoot nonetheless. Sprinkled in with the studded face masks and hulking football-like shoulder pads were the heavy use of tummy-bearing crop tops. Brown has certainly promoted typically feminine apparel before (tutus and long skirts have made appearances in his shows before), but crop tops in fall!? Zut alors.
