There’s a certain surrealism to Thom Browne’s clothes where its classic silhouettes are almost always stylised with a tinge of fantasy that stretches the boundaries of fashion. To celebrate the launch of the Fall/Winter 2019 menswear and womenswear collections, Thom Browne is holding its first bespoke made-to-measure pop-up service at the Hilton Hotel’s shopping arcade.

If you have been lusting after one of Browne’s sartorial creations, this is your opportunity to get one that fits just right. The MTM service will be held from September 14 to 15 and is appointment-only. Following that will be a customisation programme held from September 19 to 23 where you can further personalise shirts, jerseys, and others.

The Thom Browne pop-up will be held from September 14 to 23 at #01-19/20, Hilton Hotel Singapore.

A portrait of Beyoncé in Valentino dress is immortalised at the Smithsonian

In a momentous victory for popular culture, fashion, and representation, a portrait of Beyoncé shot by Tyler Mitchell has been acquired by the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery’s permanent collection.

Mitchell made history when he was chosen by the singer to photograph her cover of Vogue last September, making him the first black photographer to shoot a Vogue cover. In the ethereal portrait snapped by Mitchell, Beyoncé poses candidly on a Grecian column in a gold Valentino dress and a Philip Treacy headpiece, looking like the sun incarnate.
