For spring/summer 2018 Moncler Gamme Bleu, designed by Thom Browne, unveiled a collection inspired by how seasons can be easily transitioned.
This idea of a smooth transition between seasons is represented with down-filled looks made with over-sized plastic zippers worn over identical looks made without the down-filing. The collection is made of three groups: the grey and grey and white group, the red, white and blue group, and a formal black-tie group.
The quintessentially Thom Browne tailored pieces such as sport coats, Chesterfield coat, peacoat, trench, cardigan, polo shirts, trousers and shorts are made in both traditional wool suiting, cashmere, wool mohair, Calvary twill, cotton gabardine, cotton poplin, Mackintosh fabric, and seersucker as well as the same in the technical versions: technical wool, technical cashmere, nylon ripstop, mesh and rainproof slicker.
All fabrics have been developed for the collection with technical details such as embroidery, intarsia furs, water-repellent finishes, checks created by embroidery or stitching.
Accessories include, moonboots to represent the winter, and flip flops to represent the summer, as well as sailor bags in matching fabrics from the collection and quilted down filled beach towels in terrycloth to match the pattern in the collection.
