Virgil Abloh’s Off-White and Moncler announced their partnership with the Moncler O collection. The collection is inspired by fishing, specifically fishermen of the northern sea. To highlight the garments, and inspiration, the images create a lost at sea vibe. The collection showcases Abloh’s knack for color and his impeccable design eye, that brings street-wear to luxury. Materials used throughout the collection are rubberized, prints go from stormy skies to Off-White’s signature diagonal stripes, with Moncler’s icon branding done in bright yellow. Anoraks, jackets, parkas, puffer coats, vests and a sherpa half-zip make up the heavy duty collection. Long jackets and puffer coats come with fixed and detachable hoods, long and short parkas are unlined with minimal stitching. The anoraks look like classic waxed sailing jackets and come with multiple pockets, and are available unlined or padded for protection in freezing climates. Oversize trousers made of double water proof cotton, inspired by 19th century British Royal navy uniforms, come with elasticated waistbands and drawstrings. The stand out of the collection is the vest, waistcoats, that resemble lifejackets. Although the collection is clearly inspired by fishermen, Abloh tweeted that the collection owed its design to “every rap video with Nautica in it,” throwing it back to hip-hop days, where rap artists wore Nautica puffer jackets with Tommy branded tees. Again highlighting the relationship and influences between streetwear and luxury goods.
