Thom Browne made his name creating men’s suits, so it came as no surprise that the men in his show came out wearing a series of grey suit elements – coats or capes, long and short, with skirts and trousers of different lengths and styles.

When designer Thom Browne left New York Fashion Week four years ago to start showing his label in Paris, it left a hole in the New York calendar. No designer tells stories with his clothes in the same way, creating fashion shows that are more like elaborate theatrical productions. Never content to simply ply his wares on a regular runway, Browne has long created complex, mystical universes, often evoking past centuries. Returning to New York this season – albeit only temporarily – he stayed true to this tradition, mounting a show that told the story of a grand old house, a magical garden and statues coming to life.
