Moncler Genius opens Milan Fashion Week

MonclerGenius opens Milan Fashion Week

Yesterday Milan Fashion Week opened with a mastrodont of a fashion presentation held by Moncler. Introducing the ‘Moncler Genius’ project for fall/winter 2018, in which eight (8!) designers, or fashion houses, collaborated with the brand. Our personal favorite are the designs by Pierpaolo Piccioli, the creative director at Valentino. He transformed the, now so very trendy, ‘puffa coat’ into a couture-like-cape silhouette, using beautiful color combinations. (see those below)

Graig Green and the Grenoble line

Apocalyptic SF Action Heroes on the Runway for F/W 18

Apocalyptic SF Action Heroes on the Runway for F/W 18

Fashion-week: menswear for Fall/Winter 2018. It’s a mad, mad world. It truly is. Some Fashion designers can’t take it anymore, and it shows! Rick Owens showed some kind of mutant men. (the ones with the white faces) At Comme des Garçons some of the models  wore skeleton warrior-like headpieces (sewn in fabric). At Yamamoto’s Y-Project, the boys seemed protected by thigh-high-Ugg-boots: again it’s a mad and apocalyptic world!

Comic Book

In the runway shows, by the designers above, there was also a more lighter, and more colorful side to be found. Below, for example; Comme des Garçons, a jacket with an actual comic book print. At Vetements in a more illustrative way: the comic-book figure himself.
