Moncler Gamme Bleu A/W 2017
Mood board: The mountain climbing theme at Moncler Gamme Bleu came forth loud and clear as a troop of men wearing grey wide-leg skiing suits covered in cable ropes and metal hooks, took center stage on a snow filled runway. From then on nearly every men’s look came bound with all manner of hiker bondage; a pair of legs peeking out of puffer shorts were strung together by the socks, while chests, arms and wrists were all tied up with climbing knots, nets or rope.
Best in show: The coolest stuff at Moncler Gamme Bleu is always the inventive skiwear. Super puffy looks with wide leg cropped trousers, and snug padded jackets were done this season in brightly coloured striped wools and jacquards. The brand’s signature red white and navy was supplemented with icy blue, green and grey.
Finishing touches: Instead of ski masks, models wore mink mouth warmers that draped over the face like furry beards. Round-eye googles with red, white and blue straps and thick ski hats topped off the look. Shoes meanwhile looked part bowling part mountaineering, while backpacks were swollen up to expedition size and given a splash of striping in the label’s signature colourings.
