Moncler Spring / Summer 2018 Show

Moncler Spring / Summer 2018 Show Backstage

Thom Browne’s Tale of Two Seasons. Part performance-piece, part tableaux vivant, Browne’s Moncler Gamme Bleu shows have in turn taken over manmade inner-city ski slopes and, in 2009, fanciful military barracks created for the day. For his Spring / Summer 2010 show, Browne invited to Piscina Cozzi, a public swimming pool in Milan first opened in 1934. There were sun loungers at last week’s presentation too, however for Moncler Spring / Summer 2018, models reclined in the centre of a make-shift forest dusted in articulated snow instead of azure blue pools. The forest itself was a product of Browne’s vivid imagination, as palm trees grew next to alpine firs.

Palace X adidas Originals for Spring Summer 2017

Palace X adidas Originals for Spring Summer 2017

It’s a basic concept but it’s one that PALACE has stayed true to since its inception in 2009. So far the brand’s London-born founder Lev Tanju has collab’d with Reebok Classics, Umbro, and Tate Britain for a limited series of decks inspired by art. And let’s not forget the first Originals X PALACE partnership for Fall Winter 2016, launched in October last year.  Integrity and loyalty to his core customer base is the secret to Lev’s sucess. “I just want to make things because we like them, not because we know they’ll sell,” he once famously said.
