Models decked in business wear ‘clocked in’ for their daily grind, sitting at desks equipped with vintage Olivetti Lettera typewriters. The midcentury-style set was constructed inside a glass box at the Beaux Arts on Paris’ Rive Gauche, complete with coat racks, table lamps and ubiquitous horizontal blinds.

A framed portrait of Una Troubridge – the inspiration for Browne’s collection – by Romaine Brooks was whimsically placed on every desk.

Models were styled in androgynous fashion, wearing Browne’s signature suits, complete with Macs, and styled with slicked back hair and wing-tipped glasses. Colours ranged from muted monochrome greys to candy stripes and checkers.
