NEWS IN Thom Browne
The all-American designer Thom Browne offered Oki-ni a few precise guidelines on how to style one of his signature suits. The grey suit is Thom Browne‘s primary vehicle for expression and over the years he has created a set of exact rules and recommendations, as he has reinvented and revived this staple of menswear.

Whale bones and carcasses mixed with floral jacquards, pastel madras, and embroidered lace, fashioned into modest skirts and worn under printed silk peignoirs or Browne’s signature tailored jackets. Many of the fabrics are sourced in Japan and most of them are custom-developed. Pumps worn with matching socks or plain white socks along with new frames make the looks very coherent with our beloved Browne. Full lookbook after the break. Read the rest of this entry »

The beige interior looks really nice and soft while the striped ribbon makes a statement. (shop) Read the rest of this entry »

While backpacks have disappeared from the streets in recent years, Eastpack bags beeing hidden, Thom Browne dares to design one. Unsurprisingly, the result is amazingly simple and wonderful. The main part is made of canvas (upper) and the bag is accented with suede contrasts and, of course, the signature tri-color detailing and the usually simple Thom Browne branding.
