Thom Browne Selects at Cooper Hewitt

By Roseanne Tabachnik

March 11, 2016

The Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum has unveiled their latest installation, “Thom Browne Selects” as part of their ongoing “Selects” series on view through October 23. The New York City-based fashion designer Thom Browne explores perceptions of reflection and individuality through his installation.

The exhibit is comprised of more than 50 of Cooper Hewitt’s unique and contemporary mirrors and frames, which are displayed together with some of Browne’s personal belongings, such as a desk, chair, typewriter, and coat stand. Browne, who is known for his meticulous approach in tailoring men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, re-examines ideas of conventional fashion through uniformity while focusing on the incorporation of distinct materials.
