Macabre, punk, studs and electric chairs usually aren't words that one would associate with American sportswear, but in Thom Bowne latest collection, they make a perfectly theatrical fantasy. Dubbed as "Herman Munster chic", Fall / Winter 2012 menswear runway take an interesting journey into fantastical plays in proportion and concepts.
One could say that it's not wearable. Yes, I agree and he's getting a lot of unnecessary heat for this collection. PEOPLE - runways are meant to be theatrical and get press! And based on the amount of press written about this, Thom Browne is a marketing/branding genius! And of course his actual line will be in normal proportions and be commercial and WILL SELL. That's just the way it works!
Sometimes fashion is just that.... a fantasy. Sit back, relax, and try and enjoy the spectacle.
