Winter Wonderland

12th March 2013

I am finally finding time to go through the last of the shows from fashion week and am bowled over by the amazing Moncler Gamme Rouge under the creative direction of Giambattista Valli. Not a brand I usually take any notice of there is something incredibly interesting about them right now.

Recreating a winter wonderland with real huskies on the catwalk, Valli mixed up real fur pelts with more sporty trompe l'oeil style prints which look to me as if they are inspired by the brilliant mill Komatsu Seiren who have been developing these materials for a few years now.

I also love the simple forms too that totally fit with the exuberant materiality.

I use this blog as a notebook of inspirations – I post things I see and like and thoughts of mine. I don't revolve around a singular topic and neither does this blog. Everything and anything is relevant
