In the aftermath of today’s pandemic, which has led to an all-around economic slowdown, the luxury industry is now back on the oft-observed path of producing fashion collections that reference a more minimalist approach as opposed to the visually ostentatious. Call it a reflection of the times, if you will. However, minimalist fashion has always had an audience with the discerning, for its ability to empower its wearer with an intellectual quality, courtesy of what their wardrobe of cleverly-detailed basics suggests about their considerations. For the Fall Winter ’20/21 season, Moncler is joining in this fray for the first time, with a streamlined collection of classic silhouettes meant for the sensible urbanite who follows the “uncompromising, exacting; right every time” ethos, which aligns their high-minded values with everyday staples that measure up to expectation.
Coined the “Moncler Edit” collection, this selection of outerwear separates were inspired by the idea of coalescing tailored menswear with the label’s down textile expertise, which twists one’s preconceived notions of what understated formal wear can be. Take this collection’s Bess jacket for reference, which in essence, is a Prince of Wales checked blazer, with the exception of being subtly reworked to adopt the look and function of Moncler’s signature insulated down puffer jackets. Traditional fabrics normally associated with the sartorially-conscious gentlemen can also be found reintroduced in this collection’s Schreckhorn and Obergabelhorn silhouettes that are finished in timeless Virgin Wool.
By marrying the challenging demands of nature with city life, innovation with heritage, the Moncler Edit collection opens up whole new considerations for the perceptive consumer to reintroduce indispensable favourites that are no less elegant yet unprecedentedly more functional into their everyday.
