Ahead of the Gamme

We’re in the midst of men's fashion week madness. Milan has shut up shop and Paris is just beginning - but before we get stuck in, here's one of our highlights from the Italian leg, Thom Browne's show for homegrown Milanese label, Moncler Gamme Bleu.

Previous shows have seen Browne march his models around Milan’s Olympic-sized swimming pool and down an artificial ski-slope - and this season’s offering stuck with the energetic theme, taking place in the city's Velodromo Vigorelli stadium.

Models cycled in on a selection of two-wheelers to the tune of Queen's "Bicycle Race" and each came topped with a tricolore cycle cap (in honour of "Le Tour", we imagine).

While the show was a spectacle to behold, the collection was equally impressive. Suits, trenches and capes came in lightweight summer wool, Oxford cloth and Moncler’s signature technical fabrics, while trousers, jackets and shorts were as fitted as one would expect of Mr Browne. Though we enjoyed the cycle-inspired print which found it’s way onto everything from overcoats to cycling shorts, we’re not so sure that Browne’s leggings for men (or "meggings", as we like to call them) will catch on - though we could be wrong.
