Thom Browne Stages First Co-Ed Show
Thom Browne is launching his first co-ed show. The fashion show will mix both menswear and womenswear during Fashion Week in Paris 2020. It is a common occurrence throughout Milan and New York but isn’t trending in France. “There’s been a couple of seasons that I’ve been talking about my collections being connected, and I think it’s time to put that into actual practice,” the American designer said. Versace also announced it would be following this format, but it will only use it next year. Paris FW runs from February 24 to March 3, 2020.

Thom Browne will stage his first coed show for the fall 2020 season on March 1 in Paris. In an exclusive interview Wednesday, Browne explained that his decision was driven purely by creative concerns, rather than business or cost ones. “There’s been a couple of seasons that I’ve been talking about my collections being connected, and I think it’s time to put that into actual practice,” he said over the phone from Milan, where he was presenting and selling his pre-fall 2020 men’s collection. Browne also promised a show that’s “going to be longer and more theatrical. It’s going to be the same approach, as conceptual, as experiential as any other show. You’ll see the perfect marriage of the two collections.” Tap the link in bio for more. Report: Miles Socha . . . . . #wwdfashion #thombrowne
