Let us set the scene for you. Ten women and ten men arrive by school bus dressed in classic Thom Browne attire—tailored grey jackets, grey pleated skirts, grey cardigans, white Oxford shirts, long-winged brogues, and pebbled leather briefcases. In utter synchronicity and uniformity, they march from the corner of Bergdorf Goodman on 5th Avenue and 58th Street across to Goodman’s Mens Store, up to 59th Street and through Grand Army Plaza. Upon arrival at the Pulitzer Fountain, they sit down to enjoy a good book and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. This open-to-the-public performance entitled “The Office People”, commemorated the launch of Thom Browne womenswear at Bergdorf Goodman and is not to be forgotten.
The celebration continued on BG’s third floor, where a re-creation of Browne’s Fall 2019 womenswear runway office installation has sprung to life. Guests included Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams, Lee Pace, Stranger Things’ Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton, Cameron Dallas, Moses Sumney, Jeremy O. Harris, Justine Skye, Amy Fine Collins, Evan Mock, Vic Mensa, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, CYN, Xiao Wen Ju, Noor Tagouri, Derek Blasberg, and Parker Kit Hill. The designer himself was also seen mingling in the crowd alongside BG Fashion Director Linda Fargo. See all the highlights above and shop Thom Browne now on BG.com and in store on 3.
