it’s family night before the 2019 cfda awards. just a quiet little evening with thom browne and crew ... and maybe one or two, or a hundred, other fashion friends and famlly. it’s a night of celebration, a glass raised to all the honorees.
but first, a quick detour. a nice little garden adventure on this perfect, sun-dappled spring day.
strolling along the garden path, gravel crunching underfoot, lee pace wears his variation on thom browne’s traditional evening wear. a classic black tuxedo in wool seersucker with grosgrain tipping and trousers cut into raw-edge shorts, a white oxford shirt with black silk faille bow tie, a white pocket square, and classic brogue boots.
with an elongated string of pearls, xiao wen promenades through the park in her drop-waist jacket and two-in-one drop-waist trousers, with backstrap boxer in grey-and-white bemberg lining. a big night ahead, but right now, a meditative moment. a little stillness in her longwing spectator brogues and her hector bag.
a lovely afternoon, but a party awaits.
