5 MONCLER CRAIG GREEN
The technical and the industrial merge with a daring and imaginative vision in the work of Craig Green. The designer pushes practicality to an abstract edge, never forsaking the pragmatic aspect of clothes-making: it is in this space that a distinctive aesthetic takes shape. This season Green gave himself the task to work solely with one material: micro rip-stop nylon, a super-lightweight yet extremely sturdy fabrication. He focused on concepts of transparency, security and protection, devising boldly practical forms by exploring ways of pushing simplicity to the extreme, building volumes around the body from flat items, from 2D flat items into 3D forms. Green has used the process of down filling almost like a print, making down filling visible and giving it a whole new meaning through exploring transparency in bright hues of pink, green, light blue, yellow and red. A series of pieces in graphic black and white feature flat printed outlines of key Moncler shapes with everything resembling a padded sheet when not worn, but a series of zips allow the body to inhabit and to give volume. In this creative and technical process, Green interpreted iconic Moncler shapes – jackets, duvets – celebrating both the house’s heritage and technical processes. Transparent sneakers complete the looks.
