American fashion designer Thom Browne curates Installment for Layout Miami/Basel

The annual collector’s rational Design Miami/Basel kicks off now and the  Design at Large installation which constantly takes on the cavernous ground floor space of Hall 1 Süd is without doubt one of the highlights. Last year’s installation   curated by Cabana magazine founder Martina Mondadori Sartogo, featured a range of pavilions – by a bedouin-tent to a stone teahouse – all inspired by the landscape. The year actress hotelier André Balazs selected a collection of architectural demountables, which ranged from a VW camper van that is really Instagrammable to a Jean Prouvé filling station.

This year’s star curator is the American fashion designer Thom Browne, he of those preppy clean-cut matches and ankle-skimming trouser. He is also the mastermind behind the blockbuster Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition, head curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, Andrew Bolton and one half of some New York power duo along with his British partner. Browne says that they often share thoughts, “He affects me every day and we talk things all the time. We approach work otherwise — Andrew really means that which he can from a true intellectual point of view and I am more instinctual.”

Both enthusiastic collectors their 1930s Manhattan apartment is filled with mid-century modern pieces by the likes of Jacques Adnet, Gio Ponti, Mathieu Matégot and Gaetano Scolari and the set are   longtime admirers of Design Miami. “It is only a great introduction to seeing new things and thoughts,” Browne says.

For Style at Substantial Browne researched the very important desks over the previous 100 years, cooperating with Design Miami to pick 15 by 20th-century greats such as Jean Prouvé to dwelling masters like Ron Arad. All these form a grid and will be shown alongside a runway collection from the Autumn / Winter 2014 Men’s Show of the designer.

“The fifteen desks all represent different yet meaningful designs from the past century. I have used desks in the past because of the Pitti Immagine Uomo performance at 2009 in Florence. I am combining them using a choreographed performance which is really centred around the pupil’s interaction with the installation — and, because of certain criteria, they are interesting art and architecture students who feel passionate about the undertaking.”

S because of his own desk, Browne favors  a Jacques Adnet creation, “I enjoy it for its simplicity”, he says. More of the aesthetic of the designer can be enjoyed from July onwards when his very first London flagship store opens on Albemarle Street in Mayfair.
