MONCLER W SS2014 Collection is a collection dedicated to men signed by White Mountaineering. After its AW2013 debut, the creative collaboration between the fashion house headed by Remo Ruffini and the brand created by Aizawa continues for SS2014.
The desert, with its flora and fauna, is this season’s stylistic input, combined with safari suggestions. Tones of beige and brown dominate, with the chromatic palette interrupted by flashes of colour, just like the luxuriant vegetation of an oasis catches the eye on the boundless horizon of sand dunes.
The textures of the fabrics are reminiscent of the surface of sand and rocks, while the details and trimmings of the garments are inspired by the world of hunting in the early 1900s.
Aizawa reinvents animalier and battle dress patterns with deliberate complications. The camouflage pattern is broken up almost to abstraction and deceives the eye, making it appear crumpled. The speckled pattern imitates a leopard’s coat and the print thickens to the point of resembling the plumage of a bird.
The mix of materials, small details of coloured leather and contrasting knitwear inserts remain the distinctive elements of the White Mountaineering style applied to the Moncler universe. For Spring-Summer 2014, the Japanese designer also introduces unusually shaped pockets, as the practical function is extended to a decorative one.
