Designer Veronica Leoni presented 2 MONCLER 1952 Fall Winter 2021.22 The Power Of Dualism womenswear collection that fuses progressive thinking and sensible garment-making. The collection explores duality between an urge for escapism and a need for reassurance. Designer finds the beauty in conflict; she follows the brand’s most authentic values, but also twists it’s vocabulary in new directions to bring pieces that are both feminine and pragmatic, extravagant and clean, bold and spontaneous. The collection features a number of sustainable pieces made from recycled nylon, recycled polyester and organic cotton.
“The cinched waist, either vigorously elasticated or tied with a belt, followed by a full skirt, is the epitome of the new spirit, marrying winks to traditional fifties femininity with the dynamism and contrasts of today. The look is layered and personal: a non-formulaic invite to individual interpretation. Puffers come in an array of lengths and textures: from cropped to long, from metallic to matt and even in a detachable blanket version that hints at the cozy domesticity of a bed cover. Speaking of domestic reassurance, but also of eccentricity, even the pajama is interpreted in down blanket: padded but still piped, made in dotted technical silk.
Knitwear has a fundamental role, suggesting both ease and physicality: lurex jumpers with matching skirts, ski-inspired all-in-one ribbed second skins with punky metal snaps around the waist, extra fine merino underpinnings, felted and flared dresses. Kermit and Fozzy from Disney’s The Muppets Show also feature prominently on two of the designs.” – Moncler
