boy scouts

Moncler, since 1952, invites a certain amount of prestige in the luxury camper sector, for it’s quality sports and workwear and technological research. The models for SS17 hiked the outdoor runway, sporting just the technical compositions with thermo-bonding and water-repellence, Moncler is renowned for.

Put up your tent and enjoy the view. Moncler’s all-american boy scouts were ready to get down and dirty in the practical yet polished collection. Thom Browne’s hand-made tailoring, with Moncler’s signature fabrics and utilitarian base, encourage men to camp with class…glamp? Khaki, greens and brown lie at the base of the bear-hunter aesthetic, as do classic materials such as cashmere, shiny matt and stone washed cotton. Browne broadens the camper’s sunny horizons with his sleek touches of embroidered checks or pleated pockets, making for versatile, stylish pieces, beyond the scope of utility.
