Thom Browne highlights again his endless love for sport launching a limited-edition completely dedicated to golf
Text by: Annarosa Laureti
For the second time, in fact, after the tennis collection, the designer decided to link fashion and sport throughout tee world’s glamours atmosphere. Inspired by a classic American golf uniform, this now-buy capsule, whose color palette stretches from blu navy and red tones to pastel shades of pink and blue, presents tailoring and knitwear items with argyle and tartan motif. To shine on the putting green, Thom Browne has also added to his sweatsuits, shorts, cardigan and polo shirts – made with easy cotton as well as cashmere jacquard – unique details as pin crests and pompoms, drawn on vintage golf club covers. Finally, the most charming touch of the collection is certainly represented by shoes: pebble grain shoes with kilt fringe and – as the central piece – the “golf tee” inspired heels. Whether you want to give an elegant allure to your sport outfit or add a more athletic vibe to your city look, The Thom Browne Golf Collection is available now exclusively at brand stores worldwide.

Indeed a very chic capsule as well as its lookbook, shot by photographer Micaiah Carter at the iconic architectural treasure Glass House. Built by Philip Johnson in 1949 in New Canaan, Connecticut, it is considered one of the first modern architecture masterpiece. The architect, overtly inspired by the Farnsworth House – work of art of his colleague, but above all, great friend, Mies van der Rohe – started the project from 20 hectares of land bought, conceiving a more well- structure design, characterized by 13 building dreamt up and built over the years in harmony with nature. Among them all there are the Guest House, The Pavillon in the Pond, the Painting Gallery as well as the Sculpture Gallery – with works by Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, David Salle, Cindy Sherman, and Julian Schnabel, collected by Johnson and his partner David Whitney – and The Studio. The Glass House, with its floor-to-ceiling sheets of glass, as Johnson has said, is “the only house in the world where you can see the sunset and the moonrise at the same time” and it was architect’s home until his death in 2005. Today the property, already donated to National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1986, is a contemporary art centre opened to public in 2007, the Glass House.
