      You know, most people would not think quilted ski pants + olde timey golf knickers would be a good look. They’d be right.

    • embers618

      In case you really wanted to go golfing during the polar vortex…

      • Eric Stott

        at Downton Abbey

    • ojosazules

      I would love to look up and see a person dressed like this. Where would I have to go?

      • SEPA_Q

        Wonderland.

    • Blair Sylvester

      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

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      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.

      • formerlyAnon

        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.

      • StarburstLady

        Yay for someone else knowing plus-fours when they see ‘em!

      • snarkmeister

        They look like extra-preppy Stay-Puft Marshmallow men. It’s mind-bogglingly bad.

    • mjude

      i am sorry….LOL

    • StellaZafella

      Argyle overdose! Argyle overdose!…. “They all look like such sad Easter bunnies!” (Paraphrasing Marylin Monroe in All about Eve)

      • charlotte

        S’il vous plaid!

    • Nicholas

      OFF WITH THE DESIGNER’S HEAD!

    • gabbilevy

      Alice in Wonderland? The Joker? I’m not sure which reference fits best.

      • Nicholas

        Why choose. Could be the Royal Flush Gang, if you’re nerdy like that.

      • demidaemon

        I’m going with a pack of playing cards.

    • Nancer

      So very very bad. Not a single look that translates into the actual real world! Just foolish and misguided.So – Why?

    • Lucas

      Clowns on their way to a birthday party.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

        Obviously not the happy, jokey kind.

        • demidaemon

          No, the nightmare kind, I’m thinking.

    • SewingSiren

      Difficult.

    • Ginny Ellsworth

      Argylapalooza!!!!

    • Frank_821

      This has got to be a joke right? At least Donatella’s runway was fun!

    • Anna_Cecilia

      Deranged argyle duvets and parachute pants: Moncler Gamme Bleu – Official Uniform and Sponsor of the Through the Looking Glass PGA Tour.

    • Danielle

      Bill Murray in Space Jam.

    • CLoverleaf

      Who doesn’t love a puffy argyle clown?

    • LiliLynch

      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.

    • Janet B

      I love argyle, but I don’t know how most of these are wearable.

    • In_Stitches

      I love that the models are still doing the typical stern model face. That, juxtaposed against the cartoonishness of the clothes is hilarious.

      • Laura Renee

        The first one has just a hint of detectable shame about being there, though.

        • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

          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.

      • kimmeister

        I was just mentally applauding the models for getting through the show without bursting into peals of laughter.

        • demidaemon

          Being pretty isn’t the only part of their job! It also involves tempering shame and keeping a straight face.

    • wisenhar

      I kind of like the red, white, and blue muppet coat.

    • Glam Dixie

      Cricket uniforms! That’s all I’ve got.

    • Jessica Sabat

      …..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.

    • Lilah

      This collection is generally hilarious, but I actually kind of dig the jacket in the first picture.

    • Diego!

      My eyes…. I’m dizzy right now. And that is not a compliment…

    • formerlyAnon

      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.

      • demidaemon

        Yeah, the amount of editing involves makes me want to give up already.

    • Jon Alfred Pabillaran

      The vests, sweaters, and coats are to die!!!!

    • vickilu

      Is everyone just stealing Thom Browne’s style and silhouettes this season?

      • Victor Beiramar Diniz

        this IS Thom Browne, he’s the designer form Moncler Gamme Bleu

      • boweryboy

        Thom Browne is the designer for this line.

    • YoungSally

      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

      • kimmeister

        I do like pink and green together in an argyle. Maybe the sweater would work, on a woman.

        • YoungSally

          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!!”

          • formerlyAnon

            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??”

            • YoungSally

              Did you do the big, over-processed hair as well? Ideally tortured into an asymmetrical style.

            • formerlyAnon

              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.

    • Ashton

      It looks like a clown and a golfer had fashion sex, and this is the clothing line that came out of it.

      • demidaemon

        That’s….disturbing.

    • ailujailuj

      in certain parts of town, a dude wearing that kinda frocking gets tossed onto the 3rd rail.

    • conniemd

      “But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns.”

    • Kathryn T.

      Pfeh. If they were really committed to argyle, they wouldn’t have missed the shoes.

      (comment shamelessly stolen from my BFF)

    • Kent Roby

      All of this is the male version of Edina Monsoon. “Names, darling, names”…..but hell-to-the-NO.

    • MzzPants

      It’s tough to break down this barrage of plaid into seperates.

    • uprightcitizen

      Fashion-forward clowns in cold climates have always had to choose between being warm or looking like clowns. Until now.

    • somebody blonde

      Isn’t this the Thom Browne collection from 2 years ago?

    • marlie

      Only Alan Cumming should even THINK of going anywhere near this collection.

      • Trickytrisha

        And he’d think again and stay the hell away.

    • boweryboy

      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.

      • MaggieMae

        Really?! Well then. THAT makes a whole lot of sense then. Thank you for mentioning this.

        • boweryboy

          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.

    • Brian G. Cox

      I doubt even the Norwegian curling team would take their argyle this far. LoudMouth Pants had it right a few years ago.

    • Sarah

      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.

    • Kathy

      Wow, the Michelin Man sure is wearing some bold outfits. And who doesn’t want that silhouette?

    • Fanny_Trollope

      Everybody in clown golf pajamas!

    • jspark

      Bill Murray hits the slopes in style.

    • Mrs. Julien

      I was so distracted by all the argyle, I completely forgot to objectify the models.

    • Dan_In_NYC

      Lest this be totally dismissed as mere clown clothes, I would totally wear that jacket in the third photo, as is. :)

    • roadkill

      This is some class A trolling. Bravo, Moncler, Bravo!

    • colleenjanel

      Pillsbury Dough Boy goes golfing.

      • Victor Beiramar Diniz

        i was thinking more on the lines of tweedledee and tweedledum… there’s a certain (tim burton’s) ‘alice in wonderland’ vibe to it

        • Madam Von Sassypants

          I thought the same thing!

    • Miss wks

      I got carsick 1/2 way thru……

    • MilaXX

      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.

    • MaggieMae

      If you showed me the clothes without telling me who the designer was, I’d for sure guess Thom Browne. Anyone else?

    • GoryDetails

      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”.

    • Qitkat

      When argyle socks mate.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

        When argyle socks mate with close family members…

        • Qitkat

          Ohh noo, X rated sock drawers. Some devious animator could really run with this concept.

          • Qitkat

            Opening lines:
            So one cotton boll says to another, “have you seen the new Moncler collection?”
            “No, why?”
            “Well, I’ve got some disturbing news for you buddy.”

    • Trickytrisha

      Those poor models. My poor eyes.

    • Madam Von Sassypants

      WHAT THE SHIT.

    • lalahartma

      Lol.

    • anonylind

      Golfing clowns.

    • VicD

      I wonder if they had a little clown car pull up on the runway for all the models to climb out of?

    • kittenwithaquip

      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.

    • quiltrx

      Three Stooges golf outfits.

    • AmeliaEve

      Is #4 a cape????

    • demidaemon

      WTF? Way too much going on here. the patterns are already a hard sell; with the silhouettes, it’s just a a no go.

    • Closet Crisis

      I laughed out loud so hard! I had bed spreads like that when I was a kid.

    • Violentcello

      High fashion is so not for me. I can’t stop laughing.
