Moncler Grenoble’s Doctor Zhivago-Themed Wintery Ball

By Eliza Jordan

February 15, 2017

Yesterday at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom, Moncler Grenoble presented a fall/winter 2017-18 collection with an over-the-top show. Against a dazzling four-tier frame of curtains covered in a wintery projection, we saw new looks fit for the ski resorts of Gstaad, set to a tale narrated by Derek Blasberg. Finding inspiration in the 1960s, ’ 70s, and ’ 80s, and especially a scene from the David Lean-directed film Doctor Zhivago, the spectacle transported us high into the mountains, lost in the snow.

The multi-part collection was introduced Blasberg, with looks revealed from underneath white capes. The brand’s High Performance product, known for its functionality and high-tech fabric use, proved to be highly wearable. Nylon, thicker than in previous collections, was seen with irregular surfacing, and with chintz treatment. Inspiration from the ’70s was seen in flare trouser pants, and from the ’ 80s in the jackets’ slim styles. There were moments of all-over embroidery, crochet, cotton velvet, and corduroy shaking up the texture, and an array of prints paired with color-blocking hats, gloves, and boots.

To close out the show, the New York City Chamber Orchestra provided a rousing soundtrack to a choreographed finale of twirling capes and a ballroom dance for a Moncler Ball that carried on into the night.
