MONCLER GAMME ROUGE
The announcement that Moncler will end its partnership with Giambattista Valli on the Gamme Rouge line (the curtains will also come down on the Thom Browne-helmed Gamme Bleu) came a month after its spring staging. In retrospect, was Valli’s last collection prophetic of the changes that are in store for the brand, considering how it felt like he was saving his last dance for this season? Regardless, he explained during post-show interviews that he was taken by a group of “hiplet” dancers who fused ballet with hip-hop moves and decided to dedicate a collection to the dance form. Ribbed sweaters, puffer jackets, lace blouses, and tulle dresses and skirts were the perfect companions for the off-duty dancer making her stage exit.
