Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
For spring/summer 2017 Moncler Gamme Bleu had an honor code – the Boy Scouts honor that is. On Sunday, June 19 in Milan, show attendees were taken on a luxurious camping trip courtesy of the brand’s latest menswear collection.
Illuminated tents served as the backdrop for uniformed models in sleeping bag-like hooded coats all zipped up. Two rangers ironically fueled the campfire, and then individually freed the models from their standing slumber.
Based loosely on the Boy Scouts of America, the collection was categorized into three groups: the all-khaki group, the khaki/white/forest green/brown check group, and the formal group in brown and forest green.
Thom Browne tailored technical fabrics into trenches, capes, cardigans, shorts, and the Chesterfield coat. Signature Moncler Gamme Bleu techniques were seen with the repetition of deep box-pleated pockets.
The great outdoors were elevated with the use of fabrics like Calvary wool twill, cashmere, wool mohair, and washed cotton. The dynamic of the collection pulsed with fresh and strong utilitarian air. Accessories were included in the show with accents like hiking style boots and park ranger hats, both enhancing the nostalgic, nod to nature theme.
