'Munster' Chic Hits the Paris Runways [PHOTOS]

Fashion critics eyeing the runways of Paris this week might declare the menswear collection displayed by designer Thom Browne a "munstrous" success.

The U.S. designer ended the famed fashion city's men's fashion week with a bang by sending his models down the catwalks in looks that recalled the "The Munsters" more than male models.

Browne's autumn/winter collection, said to be a preview of what men will be wearing in the months ahead, featured sharply tailored suits with bold prints, including argyle and tartans, in bright colors, as well as football socks, a three-legged suit and full-face masks.

And it was all worn by models sporting the Frankenstein-like make up, bulging limbs and broad shoulders made famous by the classic 1960s television series. Browne started his eponymous line in 2001 and remains based in New York.

The designer described himself as "very serious" about his clothing to reporters covering fashion week.
