Set in an 18th century ballroom, Thom Browne presented a dining experience where the models in puff sleeves and top hats rotated in sheer elegance

True to his habit, Thom Browne put on a show few will forget when presenting his Autumn Winter collection in Paris. In a magnificent and beautiful 18th century ball room, the models sat down at massive dining table as the audience entered the space. The table was set for a feast, although funnily enough the boys only had sweet corn and peas on their plates...
 
Top hats, tail coats, puff sleeves and over sized bow ties all set the scene for a quite the formal affair, but there was also traces of the Thom Browne gear we've come to expect from his shows; check suits, argyle print jumpers, smart coats and loads of red/blue/white ribbons and detailing. Sometimes the NYC-designer married the concepts, as when buttoning up the tails of an evening jacket to the elbows of the coat. Another grey over coat came in a plastic coating, and green was added to the Browne tricolore colour scheme. The tailoring was, as usual, immaculate and other impressive pieces included a mohair apron and over sized round sunglasses.
