Moncler Genius Spring 2019 - Runway Review
September 19, 2018
Remo Ruffini screened a series of short films to present the latest iteration of his Moncler Genius collaborations. Simone Rocha's film featured a cast of models, hats wrapped in veils, wearing a decidedly techno-Victorian take on flower-embellished dresses and apron skirts -- the idea of showcasing lightweight nylon, cotton poplin, vinyl and plastic living harmoniously. Craig Green, meanwhile, inspired by all the folds in tents and kites, showed pieces like hooded capes and nylon jackets and tracksuits adorned with off-kilt fragments of color. Lastly, both Noir's Kei Ninomiya and Fragment's Hiroshi Fujiwara explored the creative uses of black -- the former, via cut, twisted and hole-punched puffers; the latter much more practical Americana-esque favorites in the form of jean jackets, plaid blazers and field jackets.
