holy velodrome as runway

Thom Browne, the famed ankle length pant fashion designer, just put on one awesome Spring 2011 fashion show for Moncler at the ♥ Velodromo Vigorelli in Milan -- which the New York Times points out is...
where the Beatles played in 1965 and where concerts of the 1970s were routinely the scenes of riots over the injustice of paid ticketing: “I sometimes think that I should like/ To be the saddle of a bike.”

Even if they didn't make use of the track's banked corners - the show included nice traditional styled accessories with lots of two-way zippers, contrast binding, reflective detailing (some of which appears to be an overall pattern), bike-centric skinny ties + can't help but be partial to pink on men.
