When Moncler Genius was first unveiled last year at Milan Fashion Week, the idea was well, ingenious. In the ever-changing world of fashion, what could be more novel than having multiple collections per season, each imbued with a different designer’s distinctive perspective, all under one house?
This Spring/Summer ’19, it’s London-based designer Simone Rocha who has us excited. Fed by the notion of gardens and the act of gardening, Rocha’s girly sensibilities (that often come tinged with a dystopic twist) births saccharine frocks and of course, with Moncler in the mix, technical function. The designer’s romance is not lost in the lightweight nylons used alongside tulle and taffeta, enriched with her signature floral embroideries and appliques — all on Moncler jackets and parkas. A dash of eccentricity comes in with PVC deftly layered over trenches to feminine frocks, grounded with wellington boots boasting broderie anglaise cut-outs. Browse above.
