BEAUTY: Clothing--Thom Browne for Moncler Gamme Bleu
I have come to trust that Thom Browne's sources of inspiration will be witty and fun: his shows are usually based in some interesting time period or place (witness the wild 1920s flapper show for his Spring-Summer '12 collection here). So this collection for Moncler Gamme Bleu not only features down quilted jackets (Moncler is, afterall, a legendary ski and winter sports apparel house), but Formula -One racing apparel as well. Models carried racing goggles and helmets down the runway, but what saved them from looking like Speed Racer was the Browne attention to cut and his eye for exquisite tailoring.
