Thom Browne sends Herman Munster, S&M masks down the runway

Men’s fashion week in Paris was pretty sleepy — some 1970s looks from Lanvin, some sailor-inspired fashion from Paul Smith — until designer Thom Browne closed out the week with a bang.

Browne, who is known for playing with the proportion on men’s suits, sent models lurching down the runway like tiny, preppy Frankensteins in oversized, shoulder-padded suits. The show called to mind several influences, among them Herman Munster, “Beetlejuice,” varsity football, WASPs, S&M and golf. Take a look at his monstrous fashion here:
