runway thom browne

Thom Browne showed his FW18 collection in Paris over the weekend. The American designer's shows are always a spectacle (not forgetting the giant unicorn from last time), and FW18 was no exception.

Models (all adorned with long pigtails and rosy cheeks) walked in the Beaux-Arts De Paris, which was filled with heaps of snow, some wispy trees and Thom Browne-branded beds with rolled up sleeping bags. The intention behind the beds wasn't entirely clear until the models returned to the catwalk in matching gray one pieces and proceeded to get into bed for a quick fashion week snooze.

The collection was an exercise in immaculate tailoring as well as an exploration in the limitations of formalwear. Suits were worn with shorts (as per usual for Thom Browne), and then bare legs were adorned with a buoyant gray sleeping bag material wrapped around the calf. Elsewhere the material was largely padded, again echoing the function of the sleeping bag, and all with the classic Thom Browne red/blue stripes.

Take a look at the full collection above.
