Last month's Giro d'Italia must have left Thom Browne in high gear. His Moncler Gamme Bleu show, held in Milan's Velodromo Vigorelli, was a tour de force that would make even the biggest couch potato want to get on a bike and go. Ever since the American designer arrived at the Italian house a couple of years ago, he's made a point to develop each collection around a specific theme: there's been swimming, hiking, and now cycling. And yet it still never seems cheesy. After professional cyclists took a quick lap around the stadium, professional models, dressed in nylon biker pants, contrast-trim jackets, and quirky zip cardigans, showed the audience why Browne consistently crosses the finish line first.
