#Menswear by Thom Browne presented around a Baroque banquet
New York based label Thom Browne presented the fall/winter 2011/12 men's wear in Paris in the scenery of a Baroque banquet with a rich decorated table showing animals from the forest like a rabbit and a fox. Baroque banquets are legendary such as for filling the interior of the animals with cooked others.
Thom Browne's classical tailored, urban men's wear with partly sportive touch is made of checked fabrics, raw woolen materials and remembers the fashion of the Age of Enlightenment - a cultural movement in Europe which started at the end of the 17th century in Anglo-American regions. For the 'catwalk'-presentation, the pieces are styled up with Baroque wigs and the prominent French revolution tri-colore worn as bows (one model wears it as a cul de Paris).
