SETTE MAGAZINE EN VOGUE LA SFILATA DI PIUMINI VISTA UN CAPO PER VOLTA
The down jacket show seen garment by garment. Moncler, who doesn’t know it? It’s a top-brand, popular for its down jackets; imitated by lots of brands, it has been one of the first to use fabric instead of nylon, revolutionizing the perception of the down jacket, that was sporty, then has become fashion. Moncler Gamme Bleu (that in womenswear is called Moncler Gamme Rouge and is designed by the great Giambattista Valli), aims at more fashionable customers, strenghtening with fashion contents that British style that’s the basis of Browne’s style. Press is usually enthusiastic about Gamme Bleu’s shows; the wider audience of final customers, that often exclaim “But where does a guy dressed like this go?”, has to make the effort to visualize one garment at a time, to look at and evaluate jacket by jacket and to think that, in everyday life, we won’t wear the glencheck trousers with bermuda shorts over as seen on the catwalk! Thom Browne and his fashion: it has to be appreciated also and especially as an unmatched and extraordinary exercise of styling. It could be a fashion shooting by Jean Baptiste Mondino for W. Based on this consideration it’s redundant to add that to understand this collection – ad its commercial value beyond the stylistic one – we need to de-layer it and look at each garment singularly.
