Thom Browne’s Corporate Playground
Pursuing Work-Life Balance with Thom Browne Fall/Winter 2017
Contemporary corporate landscapes simultaneously resemble boardrooms and playgrounds. The architects of such designs employ bizarre tactics to seduce ultra-ambitious professionals. A slide in the lobby, a forest of nap-pods. ‘Work-life balance’ is not just an empty platitude, but an obsession. The belief is that somewhere in this dichotomy between reality and artifice, lies the key to fulfillment. Jason Nocito, Avena Gallagher, and Charlap Hyman & Herrero take us into a surreal landscape of corporate hysteria featuring Thom Browne’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection.
