INSPIRATION ‘The Knick”… Thom Browne FW 2015||16

Nobody creates deviant and disturbing ideas like Thom Browne, making them theatrically and visually irresistible. The setting of his last show was a Victorian funeral, with models dressed in white lying down on stretchers, together with flawless guardian angels, while a group of very elegant ladies attended the funeral with an exquisite total black look [right]. The inspiration for this tableaux vivant he might have gotten from the tv series ‘The Knick”. The series, featuring Clive Owen and directed by Steven Soderbergh, illustrates the professional and personal life of surgeons and nurses of the Knickerbocker Hospital in New York around 1900 [left]. The location of the Knick OR looks just like the Thom Browne installation.
