Remember that fight scene in Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over that takes place on levitating platforms in the clouds? (No? Just us?) Well, on Saturday, for its fall/winter 2015 presentation in New York, Moncler Grenoble created real-life moving platforms (reminiscent of manlifts) in bright red, which rose and fell out of a honeycomb-like, heart-shaped configuration: it was the stuff of video games, with Valentine’s Day twist. It was like an oversized box of chocolates, except instead of caramel-filled candies, there were models in ski gear. Appropriately, each platform carried a couple donning matching attire, an ode to love and winter sports.
The clothes were nothing less than we’d expect of the luxury skiwear brand: sporty, utilitarian, and ready for the cold. Down jackets, fur, and cable-knit sweaters abounded in a palette of black, white, cobalt, khaki, slate, lemon, and coral. In keeping with the love and Valentine’s theme, the collection culminated in a fantastic and somewhat humorous bride and groom, who wore flamboyant fur hats and gloves, and a suit and gown of quilted down.
