Where the runway meets the street

As expected, there was lots of conceptual grandeur in the presentation of Moncler Grenoble‘s Autumn/Winter 2012-13 collection. Held in Wollman Rink in Central Park, teams of professional athletes donned the looks and executed a synchronized performance choreographed by Luam (whose client list includes Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kelly Rowland, and Britney Spears) set to, among other things, an acapella performance of New York, New York.

Drawing inspiration from technical ski wear, Kubruck’s vision of outer space, and the wide-eyed optimism of the ’60s, the menswear comes in a host of bold colors, including navy, white and very bright red. The fabrics are a blend of tech (high-performance Japanese fabrics) and tried-and-true (Scottish wools, flannels and tweeds) and the looks are, well, kind of intense. There are plenty of understated pieces that would be prized cold-weather friends in most closets, but there are also some things we’d probably snicker at on the slopes (read: “Is that dude wearing a cummerbund?”).
