The Italian-based outerwear specialist arrives in Australia’s southern capital and debuts its new collection for men.
Newly opened at Melbourne’s Chadstone Shopping Centre (above) is outerwear specialist Moncler, originally founded at Grenoble, France, in 1952 and currently based in Italy. Over the years the brand has combined style with constant technological research in activities linked to the world of the mountain, and the Moncler outerwear collections marry the extreme demands of nature with those of city life.
The current men’s collection is entitled Breezy Fascination and exhibits a distinctly pop attitude, reflected in the “smile” logo and in balanced mix-match combinations that create a metropolitan and informal style
The down-jacket is presented shaped as a shirt and revisits the classic military model, featuring vertical boudin, chest pockets and gross-grain applications. A vintage touch is added by the cotton piquet t-shirt and the gabardine trousers.
A full collection, from the unlined jacket with fabric pockets and leather details, to the heavy cotton knit t-shirt and the nylon swimsuit, with large pockets and “smile” logo. The aviator jacket is distinguished by knitted trims and biker collar. Completing the collection, the white pullover in raglan with patchwork and the timeless ultra-white polo shirt.
