THE OG SKI QUEENS

Fashion (Canada) - - The Market | Moments -

Inside Mon­cler 4 Si­mone Rocha’s tent, the mod­els criss-cross a run­way path on a set con­structed to look like a snow-cov­ered moun­tain. The la­dy­like ruf­fles, puffy jack­ets and bell-shaped skirts with bus­tles are more après-ski, but their in­spi­ra­tion is de­cid­edly rugged. Rocha said she was in­spired by Vic­to­rian fe­male climbers like Josephine Diebitsch Peary, Hen­ri­ette d’Angeville and Maria de Mont Blanc, who hiked moun­tains in their pet­ti­coats. “These women would go up moun­tains in full Vic­to­rian dress,” Rocha ex­plained. “I wanted to cre­ate a uni­form of vo­lu­mi­nous sil­hou­ettes, de­con­structed pro­por­tions and a new idea of a prac­ti­cal fem­i­nin­ity.”
