Thom Browne's Spring 2010 Look: Mushmouth Chic


Some great photos by Jak and Jil of designer Thom Browne's ridiculous Spring 2010 New York show, which featured plenty of polka dots, Clara Bow lipstick, and a few Mushmouth-style helmets with built-in mirrored sunglasses.


The line-up backstage.

  1. Mushmouth didn't wear the cap like that. You're thinking of Dumb Donald.

  5. You have GOT to be kidding me! I'm a big fan of fashion, but that are the Ugliest, most Ridiculous men's line I've ever seen. No man with half his wits would be seen in that stuff (outside of Halloween) and if he did, the whole world will be laughing at him. And not in a good way.

  6. Oh for fuck's sake. Really?

    Not wearable. Not interesting. Not original. Not even a demonstration of excellent craftsmanship.

    Every time I see shit like this from the fashion world, I'm driven further toward classic tailoring. Soon I'll be dressing like the Duke of Windsor, I'm sure. And it'll be Thom Browne's fault.

  7. Are polka dots back? I'll have to check the back of my closet to see if I saved all my clothes from Structure.

  8. This looks like either Clown Graduation day, or a halloween costume shop sidewalk sale.

  9. Am I the only one tempted to bounce on their heads, Mario-style?

  10. I didn't think his clothes could get anymore ridiculous.

  11. Ummm... Seriously?

  12. Really? Maybe I don't know fashion from squat, but that stuff is ridiculous. The boys are cute though, but the clothes are crazy. Maybe I'll never spend 1000 bucks on a jacket so this doesn't apply to me.

  13. The Models!! Won't someone think of the models!!!

  14. You ever get the impression that its all a joke and the powers that be want to see just how far we'll go before we call "bullshit"?

  15. Those poor male models!!!

  16. Gives new meaning to the word 'dumb'.

    From what I gather, apparently anyone can walk in off the street and be a fashion designer. Next month I'll be presenting my new line featuring outfits made from Hefty Bags and egg cartons. I call it "The Yolks On You".

  17. The comments on the blog link are as hilariously absurd as the polka-dot-pandemic outfits.

  18. @THE REALIST: That's what I love about Thom Browne.

  19. the cap with glasses looks like the Water Wiggle I had as a kid. That or the elevator operator in "The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T."

  20. That just makes me want to commit a hate crime.

  21. Runway looks are always extreme. Many of the pieces are never meant to be produced and are never offered in any store. The goal is to catch the attention of the fashion elite--fashion reporters, buyers, and a very small segment of customers who are truly fashion-obsessed. That crowd responds to something really different and cutting edge, so designers pull out all the stops.

    Yes, it all looks ridiculous to the rest of us. But by the time these looks hit the real market, they'll be edited down to something more wearable.

    All of that being said, I like the idea of Thom Browne's design far more than any of the actual garments I've ever seen.

  22. i'm sure those boys are happy to be working.

  23. I dont care if I had millions of do0llars - Id NEVER spend Frivilously on clothes,and BS..not while people are starving in this world.....and speaking's Ironic to have a FOOD CHANEL when people are literally starving everyday.

  24. Stop mixing up Dumb Donald with Mushmouth. It's all because that SNL skit with the Brady Bunch and the Partridge Family got it wrong many years ago. SIGH. Our cartoon heritage is certainly more important than the whole fashion industry.

  25. Example. Sometimes they look better without anything on.
