Models walked zig-zag down a runway that was a grassy path of wildflowers for the Moncler Gamme Rouge show, wearing looks that were more romantic than sporty. There were beautiful white dresses embroidered in PVC and rebrodé mesh or with technical dentelle lace, shiny silver dresses, and white dress coats with black graphic checks and a flocked effect on technical organza and tulle.
For girls who shy away from white, the grey pantsuit in sweatsuit material, the black dresses, and the elegant red dress coat with curved white lines down the front should please. While each piece exhibits a sporty element like zippers or a material specific to sportswear, Giambattista Valli’s collection has all the romance of his namesake label, which makes for one that is both cool and dreamy. Plus! It wouldn’t be a Moncler show without a bit of showmanship—models walked the runway carrying or wearing fencing helmets and swords, and as a finale, they were joined by a procession of male fencers who lined the runway.
