MONCLER GAMME BLEU reflects the synergy of Moncler’s expertise in active sportswear and outerwear with the hand-made tailoring sensibility of Thom Browne. For Spring/Summer 2017, the concept is based loosely on American Boy Scouts and camping.
The Boy Scout uniform inspired collection is represented in three groups: the all khaki group, the khaki/white/forest green/brown check group and formal group in brown and forest green. The quintessentially Thom Browne tailored pieces such as sport coats, Chesterfield coat, trench, capes, cardigan, polo shirts, trousers and shorts are made in all the technical fabrics Moncler is known for and many with deep box pleated pockets used throughout the collection to give a true utilitarian esthetic.
All fabrics have been developed for the collection with technical details such as embroidery, laser cut, thermobonding, gum prints on mesh and shiny and matt water-repellent finishes, checks created by embroidery or stitching. Other more classically based fabrics are Calvary wool twill, cashmere, wool mohair, seersucker stone washed cotton, stripe cotton gabardine, cotton seersucker, and jacquards in cotton and lightweight summer wool, Oxford cloth, cotton jersey, lightweight cashmere as well as technical fabrics, light Cordura, nylon Ripstop.
Accessories: Hiking boot style shoes and boots in canvas in the fabrics and colors of the collection; Park ranger hats; bags in the shapes of the box pleated pockets and backpacks in heavy cotton with leather detail; knee high socks with pockets on the side.
