Pennsylvania-born Thom Browne, 48, studied economics at the University of Notre Dame, Pennsylvania, and swam for his college team before his interest in fashion drew him to New York City where he first worked at the Giorgio Armani store. Browneâ€™s unique style was noticed by the Club Monaco fashion brand, which was then owned by Ralph Lauren, who invited him to lead Club Monacoâ€™s creative development team. Browne launched his eponymous menswear label in 2001. Since 2006 he has designed the Black Fleece collection for Brooks Brothers, and in 2008 he launched the avant-garde Gamme Bleu collection for Moncler and was proclaimed the 'designer of the year' by GQ magazine. In 2013, the designer collaborated with Dita eyewear on a 20-piece collection of sunglasses that riffs on the traditional wayfarer, circle lenses and round aviator.
Thom Browne likes to making classically streamlined and confidant-looking pieces look awkward and comically twisted. All his sunglasses are made in Japan and based on a refined stylle that combines the sophistication of the materials with the crazy and eccentric touch of the designs.
