Sudanese Model Grace Bol Is the Standout Star of Thom Browne Resort 2017

There is no question that Thom Browne is a spectacular designer, but casting Sudanese beauty Grace Bol in the Resort 17 lookbook was a sign of sheer brilliance. The collection itself is what I imagine would occur when the art scene mixes with the country club, and it’s pretty fantastic. There are preppy pleats, delicate floral embroideries, color blocks, and some primary pops to shake things up. There’s something about the way Browne’s pastels bring out the gorgeous hues of Bol’s complexion. Even when photographed with five other models it is impossible to take your eyes off of her. If that was Browne’s goal, consider it accomplished.
