Black Fleece by Brooks Brothers Spring/Summer 2013

By Butterboom Writers  /  April 17, 2013

Fresh, irreverent womenswear designed by Thom Browne.


Black Fleece is the high-end, fashion forward diffusion line from America’s oldest clothing brand, Brooks Brothers, and they have just opened their first Hong Kong store on Wyndham Street. Designed by Thom Browne, the women’s collection is a natural progression of the menswear line- think cool, clean silhouettes and preppy clothes that are wearable with an eccentric edge.

The overall aesthetic is classic Americana; button down shirts, high waisted skirts, pleats, is essentially Thom Browne’s signature cropped suits adapted for the female form. The fun comes in through the bold Hawaiian prints and primary colour checks, which are splashed liberally across the collection. For the less daring there are some simple, tailored separates and cute, 50s inspired dresses, while the formal wear would suit anyone, bow tie optional ; )

This is one of those stores we recommend for workwear essentials (not the plaids) – the clothes are easy-to-wear, feminine style statements from one of menswear’s best designers.
