1969 - 2010
You will never be forgotten
Thank you for everything
Have you been outside lately?
You will notice that there has been quite a lot of snow in the UK, which I thought wasnt as bad as everyone made it out to be, but what really caught my eye was the return of MONCLER to our streets. I do like Moncler and think every well dressed man (or woman) should own one of these shiny puffers.
In the past years, MONCLER seems to have been reserved for Italian or Spanish tourists, it became their trademark the world over, just like Germans wear white socks in sandals and carry Eastpacks (as a German, I am allowed to say that). One of my childhood memories is my dad wearing this "juicy green grass" colored MONCLER puffer jacket and Lord I hated it... I found it embarrassing to be seen with him, but have now realized that he just had style and bought a timeless classic, which I made him wear again this winter.
Everyone, go and buy a MONCLER. Trust me, if it wont be back in fashion this year, it will be in 5 so see it as an investment.
On the other side, I am not quite sure about the Thom Browne/Moncler collaboration "Gamme Bleu". I know it received fantastic press, but the last S/S collection looked identical to an old B-Store or even Ralph Lauren, I dont think they are getting the whole British originality across.
Then again they have only been around since 2008, so they may be excused.
