MONCLER GAMME ROUGE SS16 FENCING GIRLS : A BACKSTAGE LOOK
French House Moncler is known of its year-long know-how in mixing style and technicality. Its identity is deeply linked to winter sports and the mountains and, in the past decades it has found the way to translate its core aesthetic to the everyday, contemporary apparel needs. The Moncler Gamme Rouge line, of which Giamabattista Valli is creative director, yet evolves on a fine balance between fashion an dream. For this Spring-Summer 2016 collection, Valli was inspired by the mythic Château de Versailles and imagined a collection were the codes of French elegance were the support of his dreamy vision. Girls walking in zigzags in a large blooming garden were showing clean silhouettes in technical lace, organza and jerseys in white, grey and ivory tones. The majority of the silhouettes were embroidered with lilies of the valley, which accentuated the floral theme. With Moncler and Valli, sport is never that far away, and fencing immediately appeared as the main inspiration. The models were holding fencing helmets and foils, her outfits – a red bodysuit worn over white leggings, a red coat dress with side zippers – matching their youthfully defiant attitude. The perfect image to keep in mind to close this Paris Fashion Week.
