Moncler at the fall/winter 2011/12 men's runway fashion shows Featured

Influence from England and Scotland amongst the season's greys and browns
by 20 January 2011

Moncler took us into a riding school, in their latest urban fashions for the fall/winter 2011/12 men's collection that included many references to aristocratic, rural England, where the favourite sports were traditionally riding and hunting. Activities that have maintained their characteristics of rules, style and behaviour unchanged for decades, even centuries.

To celebrate these pursuits dear to nobility, Moncler presented a collection in which the tailoring aspect of fashion comes to the fore. It is a complete collection, very soft and warm, with quality padding materials in goosedown and wool.

Suits, sports jackets and coats, trenchcoats, cardigans and Oxford shirts recall the world of equestrian sports, while materials and details contain references to Scotland, such as woollen fabric, tweed, cashmere, waterproofed textiles such as cordura, and combinations of fabrics and braid.

Colours are based on the classic Scottish tartan patterns. In terms of colour, the collection is based on many shades of grey from ash to anthracite, various types of brown, with accents in bright red. inserts of fur and leather add touches of brown and camel.
