Thom Browne is the worst kind of designer: a gimmick designer. Oh wait, he says he’s not a designer, he’s “an artist.” So then, he’s a gimmicky pretentious designer. Mind you, I don’t think great design has to be wearable or commercial. But I think it does have to make a statement, and that statement should not be “I’m a total jackass and will wear anything that is sold at Bergdorf Goodman.” By the way, good luck wearing anything that this artiste comes up with if you weigh more than 90 lbs.
