Brave Through The Chilly Climate And Stay Toasty In Moncler O

Warm up to this sophomore collaboration.

Moncler O SS17 collection marks the second collaboration between Virgil Abloh’s OFFWHITE label and the French luxury ski brand. The sequel to Moncler O’s FW16 debut collection draws from the same inspiration—the harsh Arctic Ocean, and the men who do battle with it on a daily basis.

The collection features workwear such as hooded windbreakers, pullovers and down jackets, in waterproof polyurethane films and reflective heat-welded materials, along with classic streetwear staples in the form sweaters and joggers, all featuring Abloh’s signature streetwear diagonal stripes.

But more than just slapping on his logo on Moncler’s highly technical garments, what sets this collection apart from the other Moncler’s collaborations is Abloh’s success in amalgamating Moncler’s technical expertise and fabrications with a refreshing vision.

This sees him translating the technical expertise of the house known more for creating apparel for surviving the harsh conditions of the Alps, into a difference spectrum within the cold-weather environment.

That’s called having both form and function, even if your idea of function is camping out on the streets overnight for the latest pairs of Yeezys.

Moncler O collection is available at Moncler boutique at ION Orchard and online.
