God we love Thom Browne. He just staged his first European show in Florence. It consisted of 40 models acting out, in unison, the day of an office drone from the 1950s. The models all wore the same outfit: a shrunken gray suit, cardigan, wing tips, and camel overcoat. After they walked into the room, a "boss" rang a bell at which point they took off their short coats and slim-fitting suit jackets, sat down, and started typing. They sat at identical desks and even ate identical lunches. “In the beginning it was the gray suit, and that’s how every collection starts. So I wanted people to see an army of that. This is what my guy does. He gets dressed and looks good, and he’s serious about work,” Thom tells WWD. Suzy Menkes writes, "The same ingredients of taut, even tortured, manhood were there but presented in a subtle way." Now all the people that watched the show don't have to see Revolutionary Road.
