Thom Browne gives competitive sports the couture treatment

On Monday, Thom Browne’s second Couture presentation at Paris Fashion Week took a sporty approach with a nod to the city’s upcoming Olympic Games. The muslin-based collection began with skirted models in a tug-of-war, before proceeding into elaborate ensembles complete with intricate “unfinished” embroidery, dramatic sleeves, and a wide array of textures. For a decidedly Olympic flair, the line included three models in suits covered in gold, silver, and bronze sequins—who took respective spots at a runway podium. As for the spectators at the stylish competition? Serena Williams, Anna Wintour, Andrew Bolton, Teyana Taylor, Jodie Turner-Smith, Lee Pace, Emma Chamberlain, Molly Gordon, Will Poulter, and Evan Mock were all in attendance.
