Moncler Gamme Rouge F/W 2013

Paris: Creative director Giambattista Valli created a winter wonderland for Moncler Gamme Rouge’s fall show, complete with a snow-covered runway and live Siberian huskies. In a season that was all about coats, Valli showed some of the most notable versions. He was certainly not stingy with the fur, offering styles that mixed three or four different pelts. There were also sportier nylon quilted coats and rustic brushed wool toppers featuring on-trend checks. Valli used quilting and the careful placement of puffier furs to tame volume and add a bit of sex appeal. Shorter hemlines showed off legs and seductive over-the-knee lace-up boots. Not a stranger to rich embellishments, the designer closed the show with a series of winter white looks adorned with glittering beads and jewels. Their opulence called to mind the snow-filled mansion in Dr. Zhivago. Valli sent out men in polar bear suits arm-in-arm with female models for the show’s finale, ending both his collection and the fashion season with a welcome element of humor. –Joanna Manganaro
