Thom Browne's show, usually strongly themed, was particularly ridiculous this year. The designer, inspired by tennis, featured men in headbands and knee-high white socks walking down a green turf-covered runway carrying baskets of balls. "The kindest thing to say about Thom Browne's menswear collection, which opened with hunky guys in polo shirts traced with blood red and knee-high socks patterned with tennis rackets, is that he let Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray go to his head...most of this tennis court inspiration was far too literal to seem anything but a cry for a psych from a designer who could contribute so much to dressing the peacock male."
