Thom Browne clearly got a kick out of his cricket-inspired collection. He transformed the runway into a pitch, with several dozen cricket balls lining the freshly laid turf. Models paraded nonchalantly in matching gear, before sitting down for a group portrait taken with an antique 19th-century studio camera. It was just the kind of spectacle one expects from the New York designer. The collection was mostly white, boasting multilayered looks running the gamut from Chesterfield coats and trenches to capes and actual cricket sweaters. Quilted blazers were worn over perforated knee-length tunics over knitted cardigans, for instance, and were matched with padded trousers or roomy Bermuda shorts — much like the ones you would expect to see at a real match.
