Somewhere between pure abstraction and the essence of function lies Montcler. Beyond all the tulle and sequined dazzle that was Milan fashion week, the brand continued to awe us with its realistic visions of a magical, if ominous future. This year, Montcler expanded its Genius initiative to include eight designers, and devoted it’s show to a space with individual rooms housing each unique interpretation. The result was breath taking. Maybe not the flights of fantasies from Versace, but the ensuing garments resonated with the pure humanity of the need for protection
that clothes provide us. Tough and tender: a fashion tour de force!
