The Moncler Gamme Bleu Spring-Summer 2018 gathering has been displayed in Milan on June eighteenth. The idea of the gathering depends on how seasons can be effectively progressed, and it likewise mirrors the cooperative energy of Moncler’s skill in dynamic sportswear and outerwear with the hand-made fitting sensibility of Thom Browne.
Moncler’s Gamme Bleu Spring-Summer 2018 collection designed by Thom Browne has been presented in Milan on June 18th, 2017. The collection’s concept is based on how seasons can be easily transitioned. Discover the exclusive backstage of the show.
The cognitive dissonance that struck upon arriving to snow-dusted evergreens for the Moncler Gamme Bleu Spring collection didn’t last long. Beyond the pines stood a sea of palms, hybridizing the landscape such that the colorless ground cover was just as likely to represent sand as snow. And just in case guests were slow on the uptake, Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons wafted through the space before the show got underway. Once it did, a seasonless premise addressing practical imperatives became an arousing, ingenious display that felt vaguely Fellini, vaguely Tati, and unmistakably Thom Browne.
Out came down-filled outerwear in coated seersucker, pale cashmere, tricolor plaid, and matte black wool. Despite the pale palette and shorts, these looks were all conceived for cold weather; and no exaggeration, each iteration was as polished as the last. But much the same way a guy who takes off from Heathrow and lands in St. Barth’s is forced to acclimate to the temperature differential, this collection instantaneously shed layers. How? A pair of Adonis types, seemingly interrupted from a day at the beach, unzipped each original jacket from behind to reveal a summer-weight version. Come for a fashion show, get treated to the suggestion of a striptease. Meanwhile, the troops swapped out their skateboard moon boots for flip-flops, which were handily stashed in their giant knapsacks. And just like that, the Moncler metamorphosis was complete. Alas, the frisson of the live action doesn’t come through in the photos. But look closely and you’ll notice how the visuals compress the performance so that what you see are the before and after as pairs; same model, lightened-up look, footwear flipped.
This thought of a smooth change between seasons has been spoken to with down-filled looks made with larger than usual plastic zippers worn over indistinguishable looks made without the down-recording. Every one of the textures have been produced for the accumulation with specialized subtle elements, for example, weaving, intarsia hides, water repellent completions, checks made by weaving or sewing.
