Moncler’s classic, chic quilted down jackets have made this brand the ultimate in outerwear label for stylish urbanites, and their Fall-Winter 2017/2018 collection is characterized by experimentation, aesthetic transformations and technological research.
The spirit of the FW 2017/2018 collection
Moncler’s Fall-Winter 2017/18 collection draws liberally on recognized contents while at the same time revolutionizing their meaning and crafting new, captivating languages and experimental ground.
Moncler presented its Moncler Grenoble Fall-Winter 2017-18 collection on Valentine’s day at the prestigious Hammerstein Ballroom in New York. This collection’s theme played out a gripping game bringing together technology and amazing designs in a story resembling a metaphor with hidden meaning. In that wintery freeze-frame, it felt like time itself had stopped.
The major sporting inclination of Moncler Grenoble merges with a traditional and super contemporary style to create elegant, high-performance garments which are perfect for relaxation on the ski slopes as well as urban settings. A lot of new ideas and improvements have been introduced in Moncler’s Grenoble Fall-Winter 2016/17 collection, including a move towards more lightness to create more of an air of luxury.
Here are all the Moncler Grenoble looks.
Waxed jackets have been introduced for the women’s collection. These team different materials for some daring new combinations. The show was presented as an elaborate winter ball and saw models gliding to the strains of a live orchestra, draped in ivory capes with hoods, which were then removed to reveal the collection beneath.
There were plenty of nice pieces, once you got over the overwrought set, and functionality and efficiency were the main focus of the line, which is supposedly performance-tested by athletes on real slopes. The anticipated down jackets and padded puffers for this year came in an eye-popping range of colors, including red, blue, sun yellow and alpine green. Against all the bright nylon, the fine Japanese wools, corduroy, fur and velvet offered some well needed texture relief and confirmed that the Fall Winter 2017/2018 collection wasn’t just an athletic endeavor.
The Moncler Grenoble Fall-Winter 2017-18 collection is split into three distinct sections which are linked by the well-known, traditional sporting aesthetics of the brand. The first section, Moncler Grenoble High Performance, has a specialist approach and features a state-of-the-art take on fabric research. Its products are renowned for their functionality and its highly technical use of fabric, designed to meet the harshest and most extreme needs under severe weather conditions. The garments are well tested in the field by sporting talent who work closely with the Moncler brand.
The second section is Performance and Style which is the focal area of the Grenoble collection and is traditionally dedicated to the functional design of snow sports. Last, but not least, is the Après Ski section which is increasingly geared towards the day to day wearability for the modern urbanites.
The fundamental goal driving the Moncler Grenoble collection is to have all major aspects of living in a mountain resort during the winter season covered. It is a creative approach which mixes its sources of inspiration with linearity and takes influence from the 60s, 70s and 80s.
