The Moncler Dual Off–The battle between classic European menswear and the athletic performance vision of Thom Browne continued at Moncler Gamme Bleu. This season’s sport of choice was fencing for the suit-centric designer–though, not far of a departure from the American designer’s aesthetic. Padded jackets, quilted blazers and sporty fabrications were all in the favor of Browne’s design regime. House signatures such as thigh high shorts, tailored suiting and eccentric trousers were infused with new favorites in the forms of fencing jackets, pleated skirt overlay and enhanced jock cups. It was a triumphant pairing of modern and traditional menswear with a dash of heritage and humor.
