Moncler Gamme Rouge SS 2014 – The catwalk was draped in vines, but sirens wailed and red lights flashed: This was clearly an urban jungle. Diversity has been a touch paper all season. Moncler already has a natural advantage in the sportswear stakes, so Valli’s collage of couture feathers, snakeskin, and go-fast athleticism made sense. When worlds collide in a coat that mashes up leopard spots, mesh, and feathers, Moncler Gamme Rouge is what happens.
The silhouette was as trim as a Valli girl could wish. And as sharp as a blue leopard tee paired with a pert striped skirt draped to one side. Consider for a moment that such a look shared the catwalk with a giant zebra-print duffel—Valli’s marriage of form and function for Moncler has clearly opened up a whole other arena of design for him. His favorite look in this collection might be a match of cropped utility jacket and jodhpurs, some in silk, others in denim. Sure, the feathery froth spoke to the Valli we know, but this look suggested someone more interesting.
