You know, most people would not think quilted ski pants + olde timey golf knickers would be a good look. They’d be right.
In case you really wanted to go golfing during the polar vortex…
at Downton Abbey
I would love to look up and see a person dressed like this. Where would I have to go?
I have always wanted a pair of pants that make my legs look like hot air balloons. Also argyle is not an unlimited resource please conserve some for next season
Plaid plus-fours, cut with the plaid on point. My eyes bleed. I love me some Thom Browne, who did this with Moncler Gamme Bleu, but just plain no. Virtually nothing here is wearable in any real world sense, even toned down it would be tough.
I do think there are some jackets (the ones in shades of black/white/grey) that have promise, were they not layered with so many body-distorting other pieces.
Yay for someone else knowing plus-fours when they see ‘em!
They look like extra-preppy Stay-Puft Marshmallow men. It’s mind-bogglingly bad.
i am sorry….LOL
Argyle overdose! Argyle overdose!…. “They all look like such sad Easter bunnies!” (Paraphrasing Marylin Monroe in All about Eve)
S’il vous plaid!
OFF WITH THE DESIGNER’S HEAD!
Alice in Wonderland? The Joker? I’m not sure which reference fits best.
Why choose. Could be the Royal Flush Gang, if you’re nerdy like that.
I’m going with a pack of playing cards.
So very very bad. Not a single look that translates into the actual real world! Just foolish and misguided.So – Why?
Clowns on their way to a birthday party.
Obviously not the happy, jokey kind.
No, the nightmare kind, I’m thinking.
This has got to be a joke right? At least Donatella’s runway was fun!
Deranged argyle duvets and parachute pants: Moncler Gamme Bleu – Official Uniform and Sponsor of the Through the Looking Glass PGA Tour.
Bill Murray in Space Jam.
Who doesn’t love a puffy argyle clown?
So much argyle, and so many layers! I was reminded of the “Friends” episode where Joey puts on ALL of Chandler’s clothes at once. Yikes.
I love argyle, but I don’t know how most of these are wearable.
I love that the models are still doing the typical stern model face. That, juxtaposed against the cartoonishness of the clothes is hilarious.
The first one has just a hint of detectable shame about being there, though.
Yes, I am definitely seeing shame in their eyes. And I hope none of them are trying for a family, because those pants are definitely overheating their crotches.
I was just mentally applauding the models for getting through the show without bursting into peals of laughter.
Being pretty isn’t the only part of their job! It also involves tempering shame and keeping a straight face.
I kind of like the red, white, and blue muppet coat.
Cricket uniforms! That’s all I’ve got.
…..and in other news: a lost clown car found itself stopped on a runway. All the sad clowns piled out and made the long walk back to the circus grounds safely.
This collection is generally hilarious, but I actually kind of dig the jacket in the first picture.
My eyes…. I’m dizzy right now. And that is not a compliment…
No. Plus fours are not going to come back. I am sure of very few things, and often wrong even then. So, how about this: This is not the collection that’s going to bring plus fours back.
Disassembled from these ensembles, there’s wearable stuff in there, but much disassembly required. Definitely the jackets, some of the coats. Possibly a few of the vests/sweaters, but I can’t really see how any of those fit.
Yeah, the amount of editing involves makes me want to give up already.
The vests, sweaters, and coats are to die!!!!
Is everyone just stealing Thom Browne’s style and silhouettes this season?
this IS Thom Browne, he’s the designer form Moncler Gamme Bleu
Thom Browne is the designer for this line.
That poor twink in the giant white/pink/mint argyle puffer pullover…He’s an escaped member of Balanchine’s Candy Canes in the Nutcracker….just needs a hoop with bells
I do like pink and green together in an argyle. Maybe the sweater would work, on a woman.
Agreed — although it makes me think back to the preppy years of 81-82 (when I sported so many layers of clothing – turtleneck, polo shirt, oxford (both collars popped) a Fair Isle sweater a down jacket — and no socks) that all I think when I see those colors is “Muffy Muffy Muffy!!”
Ahhh, I remember those years and hated those styles and by extension have trouble with green & pink in combination to this day. I used to think “Why would woman spend that much money on clothes that make them look rectangular??”
Did you do the big, over-processed hair as well? Ideally tortured into an asymmetrical style.
Nah, I had long-down-my-back hair either in an up do with tightassed french braiding for work, or lots of tendrils for evening. Though eventually I *did* cut myself some bangs and had the heavily moussed, gravity-defying swoop.
It looks like a clown and a golfer had fashion sex, and this is the clothing line that came out of it.
in certain parts of town, a dude wearing that kinda frocking gets tossed onto the 3rd rail.
“But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns.”
Pfeh. If they were really committed to argyle, they wouldn’t have missed the shoes.
(comment shamelessly stolen from my BFF)
All of this is the male version of Edina Monsoon. “Names, darling, names”…..but hell-to-the-NO.
It’s tough to break down this barrage of plaid into seperates.
Fashion-forward clowns in cold climates have always had to choose between being warm or looking like clowns. Until now.
Isn’t this the Thom Browne collection from 2 years ago?
Only Alan Cumming should even THINK of going anywhere near this collection.
And he’d think again and stay the hell away.
My initial thought was, “This looks like a Thom Browne rehash from a few seasons ago.”
Then I remembered Thom Browne is the designer for Moncler Gamme Bleu. It’s all wack-a-doodle cray cray, but at least it’s not boring. I’ll take this any day over the hot Jersey Shore Versace mess from yesterday.
Really?! Well then. THAT makes a whole lot of sense then. Thank you for mentioning this.
It’s kind of silly, really. I mean, he already has a Thom Browne menswear line, and the Moncler Gamme Bleu line never deviates from the Thom Browne aesthetic.
It would make more sense to me if say, the Moncler Gamme Bleu line had a lower price point and was true ready-to-wear interpretations of the Thom Brown line.
Having two separate lines producing exactly the same stuff doesn’t make sense to me. And now, starting this year, the Moncler Gamme Bleu line is moving into womenswear as well.
I doubt even the Norwegian curling team would take their argyle this far. LoudMouth Pants had it right a few years ago.
Potholder Golf Clowns. Somebody needs to pop and lock up on that runway, and then maybe I’d give it a pass. As it is, rather nightmarish.
Wow, the Michelin Man sure is wearing some bold outfits. And who doesn’t want that silhouette?
Everybody in clown golf pajamas!
Bill Murray hits the slopes in style.
I was so distracted by all the argyle, I completely forgot to objectify the models.
Lest this be totally dismissed as mere clown clothes, I would totally wear that jacket in the third photo, as is.
This is some class A trolling. Bravo, Moncler, Bravo!
Pillsbury Dough Boy goes golfing.
i was thinking more on the lines of tweedledee and tweedledum… there’s a certain (tim burton’s) ‘alice in wonderland’ vibe to it
I thought the same thing!
I got carsick 1/2 way thru……
lol, I laughed my through this entire post. Each look is just sillier than the next. Some of the saner jackets might work with jeans on a more causal event, but most of this just loos like blankets and the shoes look like giant Buster Brown kid’s shoes.
If you showed me the clothes without telling me who the designer was, I’d for sure guess Thom Browne. Anyone else?
What, no puffy pink bunny-suit? It really is a nightmare cavalcade of “out-of-touch-grannies’ Christmas PJs”!
Well, OK, some of the grey-scale pieces might look rather nice if used in combination with solid black or white, but otherwise all I can think of is “Just wear this long enough for a photo, honey, so Grammy will see that you wore it”.
When argyle socks mate.
When argyle socks mate with close family members…
Ohh noo, X rated sock drawers. Some devious animator could really run with this concept.
So one cotton boll says to another, “have you seen the new Moncler collection?”
“Well, I’ve got some disturbing news for you buddy.”
Those poor models. My poor eyes.
WHAT THE SHIT.
I wonder if they had a little clown car pull up on the runway for all the models to climb out of?
Yeezus, it’s like seeing argyle reflected back on itself in a 1000 funhouse mirrors. Just look at the models’ faces: every single one of them looks like they’re telling the photographer that if s/he snaps a pic of them in these outfits, he’s going to hunt them down…and make them wear this awful shit.
Three Stooges golf outfits.
Is #4 a cape????
WTF? Way too much going on here. the patterns are already a hard sell; with the silhouettes, it’s just a a no go.
I laughed out loud so hard! I had bed spreads like that when I was a kid.
High fashion is so not for me. I can’t stop laughing.
