Following the recent opening of the reimagined Saks Fifth Avenue women’s store in Beverly Hills, Saks and Thom Browne have partnered to launch an exclusive, California-inspired capsule collection, available on and at select Saks Fifth Avenue stores. The limited-edition capsule celebrates the spirit of California, featuring women’s ready-to-wear, shoes and handbags infused with vibrant hues and whimsical twists to silhouettes, in addition to a new tweed that was developed specifically for the collaboration.  

In celebration of the launch, Thom Browne has taken over Saks Fifth Avenue Beverly Hills with immersive visual installations and special offerings throughout the store, including a made-to-order animal handbag activation that is available for the first time at Saks Fifth Avenue as part of the partnership.  

“We are thrilled to partner with Thom Browne to launch this exclusive capsule and bring the collaboration to life across the Saks Fifth Avenue ecosystem,” says Tracy Margolies, chief merchandising officer, Saks. “As a fashion authority, Saks inspires our customers through fashion and experiences they can’t find anywhere else from the most sought-after names in luxury. Thom Browne is one of the most creative minds in fashion, and he has revolutionized the industry with his incredible talent and distinctive take on tailoring. As the leading name in luxury fashion in North America, we are honored to partner with an iconic American designer like Thom Browne to bring this special collection and experience exclusively to Saks customers.” 

“The capsule collection and installations I created for Saks are truly perfect for the new Saks Fifth Avenue store in Beverly Hills,” says Browne. “They represent pieces of my world – some new, some old – mixed with the aspiration of old-school Hollywood that Saks Fifth Avenue has brought back to life with their new location. Their approach to storytelling and product is truly unique and I couldn’t think of a better place to help bring these ideas to life.” 

Thom Browne’s capsule collection for Saks represents a fusion of East Coast and West Coast flair. Silhouettes were handpicked from the Thom Browne archive and recreated in new fabrications and vibrant colorways that capture the essence of the California lifestyle while remaining true to the elegance and tailoring for which the brand is known. The collection consists of uniform tailoring, polo shirts, cropped varsity jackets and miniskirts, complemented by accessories, including the Mrs. Thom handbag, the Hector baguette handbag and pebble grain brogue heels.
