Just in time as we pack away our bikinis, Shailene Woodley was seen walking the red carpet in a quilted skirt from Pierpaolo Piccioli’s collaboration with Moncler. And we are calling this pairing an “art project”.
It’s as if Moncler took its guts to a whole new level. While fans are accustomed to seeing the red carpets unearth the most breathtaking Valentino gowns, this one was also puffery as poofy it was. Warm, comfortable, protective and innately elegant, this hybrid is head-scratching-ly innovative. Moncler took its iconic down jackets, their signature of excellence, to the wizard who uses fabric to weave his magic, and voila! A true embodiment of one of those moments when fashion and function intersect!
Making sure the watchers shiver as she sashays her way, Shailene Woodley’s puffery was enough to get jaded fashion folks gawking and the internet talking. Meanwhile, Liya Kebede’s garb boasted of a tried and tested partnership, the model paired her Moncler-esque skirt with a classic plain white tee.
Adding a touch of ski weekend to ballgowns, we are laughing, looking back at the days when puffer jackets were a fashion don’t. Today, it’s not a surprise winter-hit garment anymore, everybody loves the puff.
