Thom Browne Travels to the Moon for His Futuristic SS21 Collection

Taking inspiration from his childhood trip to the 1976 Montréal Summer Olympics.

Continuing the rollout of socially-distanced shows and lookbooks this season, Thom Browne has now unveiled a futuristic Spring/Summer 2021 collection. The co-ed range is set in 2132, where the designer pictures the Olympics to take place 239,000 miles above, on the moon.

Taking inspiration from his childhood trip to the 1976 Montréal Summer Olympics, the creative showcases his latest collection with an accompanying video of comedian Jordan Firstman and model Grace Mahary starring as sports commentators. Shot at the Los Angeles Coliseum, the visuals capture tonal white outfits influenced by ’20s and ’30s fashion.

“Menswear as womenswear, women’s as men’s,” the official press release reads, highlighting the unisex nature of Browne’s latest collection, which is worn by both models and actual Olympians in the lookbook. Arriving in all-white, each style comes in oversized, boxy silhouettes that are achieved through the use of suits, blazers and pencil skirts. Structured knitwear and pleated pieces are seen on male models for an androgynous feel. Straying away from the use of colors, the designer goes all out on techniques this season: cashmere seersucker, cable knits, thick embroidery, trompe l’oeil dresses and more. Accentuating the lookbook are deconstructed pieces like a blazer-shaped skirt, along with a series of bucket hats and Hector bags.
