The 40 looks conceived by Giambatistta Valli for Moncler Gamme Rouge spring-summer 2016 strolled through a wild meadow reminiscent of Queen Marie-Antoinette’s hamlet gardens. For this summertime collection, the Italian designer revealed his admiration for fencing, all things baroque and blossoming young girls.

 

While the Moncler brand, born in 1952, called upon French designer Chantal Thomass during the 1980s, it was in 2006 under the impetus of new artistic director and owner of the house, Remo Ruffini, that the Gamme Rouge saw the light of day.

 

Since the arrival of Giambattista Valli in 2008, the Moncler Gamme Rouge has been proposing the perfect fusion of sportswear and couture. The Roman designer combines ultra-sophisticated embroidery, recalling the pomp of Versailles’ glory days, with structured volumes that are complex yet stripped back to a bare minimum, in reference to the Moncler’s world of sports.

 

This collection, in white, black and red, is an energetic mix of genres and styles: short white jackets in technical fabrics embellished with sophisticated lace, virginal full-skirted dresses in white organza embroidered with tone-on-tone lace, tulip skirts in black mesh and bodies decorated with lilies of the valley, carmine leotards whose designs conjure jacquard complexity… A world described by Giambattista Valli as “Versailles meets abstraction”.
