Runway Report: Moncler Grenoble Fall 2017

It seems as though the trend for entertaining during a fashion show is back. This season, Moncler Grenoble enchanted us with ballroom dancing, roses, faux snow, and models decked in stunning capes before unveiling the collection underneath. Don’t get us wrong, we love being entertained while analyzing the next season’s trends, we just wonder whether the pantomime aspect is a trend in itself, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see as fashion month continues. 

In the meantime, as we all know, Moncler is famous for having created a world of collections that is meant for those that wish to stand out in a crowd. And while their primary focus is of course in the world of skiing and apres-ski activewear, their keen eye for designing lavish outerwear and luxurious separates provides a dreamy and ultra-editorial version of what you could look like in your most fabulous skiing dreams. Perhaps that’s why their eloquently styled models appeared to look much more like royalty on the slopes than your average downhill skier.

The lineup for Fall 2017 began with earthy tones like stone, marle gray, bear brown and plenty of winter white. This was followed up by a palette of primary colors and a swoon of pastels, including a few numbers in a fluffy marshmallow pink. However, it was the color combination of cobalt blue and cotton candy pink that really had our eyes dancing. Other favorites included in a two-piece suit with a waist belt, fur elbow length gloves, and complimentary hat and boots. Another contender on and off the slopes was the knee-length fur coat, lined in the signature Moncler puffer jacket which donned patent edging and a cinching belt for good measure.

Ski season is still rife for the next month so we will definitely be dreaming of gliding through the snow, Moncler style.
