Thom Browne’s signature Hector bag is about to receive some new companions. The New York designer’s animal-centric fall / winter 2020 collection has inspired a series of Animal Icon bags and leather goods, which range from furry tote bags to patterned folios.
The Bow of the Noah’s Ark inspired range is a series of extremely limited edition bags. Each highly detailed bag takes at least three days at an Italian craftsman, infusing each unique style with rich personality and stunning detail. Ranging from smaller styles (pig, rat) to larger ones (bear, lion), none are offered in editions larger than 20 or 30.
The special bags come with a variety of creature-themed leather items. Wallets, folios, card holders, passport holders and charms are at your fingertips, crafted in elegant pebble leather with adorable leather appliquÃ©s in the shape of each animal. Unique Mr. Thom bags complement the wild selection, crafted in matching neutrals and lined with the same striped pattern that has long been Browne’s signature.
Each limited bag and special item is available on the Thom Browne website and resellers like HBX also carry some of the special parts.
More recently, Browne presented his FC Barca Foundation charity capsule.
