Thom Browne Spring Summer 2023 “Anchor, Fast Anchor” Menswear Paris Fashion Week. Story by RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
Once again New York designer Thom Browne showed new collection for the next summer season in Paris. And one of the most fabulous Parisian models Debra Shaw presented the collection. Debra Shaw known to big public since 1990s. She walked runway for Thierry Mugler, Jean Paul Gaultier, Michael Kors – you name it.
She became an icon since she leaded Thierry Mugler “Insects” couture show in 1997.
For the last 20 years her elegance and grace inspired many French and American designers.
This time Thom Browne choose her to introduce collection for the men “Anchor, Fast Anchor”. This is De Gray family motto, which fits perfectly with this collection. The De Gray family coat of arms bears helmet with the anchor on it instead of crown, symbolizing ownership and protection of the lands close to the water.
Perhaps New Yorker Thom Browne choose the Anchor symbol, which was applied to the face of every model for this collection to symbolize New York, a city on a water. He showed his own classic pieces, and… some elements of the women’s swimming suits turning into outwear for men.
