David Harbour and Anh Duong showcase the androgyny of Thom Browne clothing
The actor and artist star in campaign illustrating the gender fluidity of the brand's fashions
Earlier this year, Thom Browne swapped the roles of parents and children in its campaign starring actor Alan Kim, its first to promote the brand's kids' line. Today, the fashion brand returns with another delightfully quirky and tradition-bending push starring “Stranger Things” and “Black Widow” actor David Harbour.
The brand’s signature, finely tailored clothing is modeled by Harbour and visual artist Anh Duong in a video and series of images reminiscent of paintings like Grant Wood’s “American Gothic.” Shot by photographer Tina Barney at Teviotdale House in upstate New York, the campaign features the duo sporting identical outfits in an effort to push the brand's inclusivity of menswear for women and womenswear for men.
The campaign finds the couple wearing suit coats and tailored shorts in front of the Colonial style home. Once inside, they swap shorts for knee-length skirts. They continue to match garments to express that Browne's clothing can be fitted to any body. The campaign video appears to as if shot on vintage film and captures not only Browne’s fall line, but the minutiae of Harbour and Duong’s day–a closeup of Duong’s hand gesturing over a glass of champagne or Harbour stroking his facial hair–set to the eerie sound of cicadas.
According to the brand's release, Thom Browne’s search for this campaign’s models required “a man and a woman who would bring their own identities to his men’s and women’s core offering. David and Anh are both true individuals: talented, confident, kind, interesting, sincere. The classic grey tailoring becomes their own.”
