Originally inspired by the concept of Mountain. Simone’s first collection for Moncler has taken inspiration from the Victorian Mountain climbers of the 19th century. Creating a uniform of voluminous silhouettes, deconstructed proportions and a new idea of a practical femininity. This has been translated through silhouette, volume and structure. The collection explores these ideas whilst entwining the Simone Rocha femininity with the utilitarian practicality of Moncler. The classic Moncler Down fabric is reinterpreted in a feminine functional way in Simone’s signature colours; red, pink, ivory and black with pearl. The collection features signature sequin floral embellishment, collapsing frills and embroidered flowers. These florals are also translated into a signature woven cloque fabric. The beaded embellishment in pearls and black sequin flowers is naturally integrated into the seams of garments to reflect flowers and foliage on the mountains, growing in between the rocks and cracks. The knitwear and cotton jersey stories in the collection are edged in lace with dense macramé flowers. The texture and handwork create a delicacy. Simone has presented full immersive outfits for this collection encompassing garments, sunglasses, bags, footwear and accessories. The garments are punctuated with hiking boots in leather with faux fur tongues and floral toes as well as classic down gloves with marabou trims. Integral to this feeling the bags in the collection are inspired by the hiking harnesses contrasted with classic Victorian purses. The textured faux fur straps are then integrated to create a feminine form of utility. – from Moncler
