Looks like Kanye isn't the only one out here inspiring flagrant paint by numbers steez biting. Every element on the garment down to the zips were chosen solely because of how light it was." If Williams proved that luxury down jackets can inhabit the aesthetic universe of one of fashion's most attitudinal brands, Green made the case that the down jacket can, essentially, become anything - and that the material has uses outside of keeping the wearer warm.

Green explained that the garments were clad in a ripstop nylon that was absolutely the lightest available today, so light that you could see both those interred models within and the white pouches of feather.
From a distance, flashy skiwear brand Moncler's latest partnership under its collaborative Genius label - with Matthew Williams's tech - y, high fashion 1017 Alyx 9SM - seems an unlikely fit.
We started working with different photographers for the Moncler image, and then marketing campaigns. The show was one part of a global festival called Mondo Genius - a www.monclersoutlets.com five - city presentation of collaborations with the eleven designers who, under Moncler's Genius program, bring their runway edge to the brand's puffy performance wear.
After all, Green pointed out, he believes "the most interesting design comes from working within restrictions" - which Moncler Jackets means that, when approaching a collection with Moncler, "there are so many possibilities, but also there're also an incredible amount of restrictions in what you can and can't do in the format." Green certainly proves that limitations leads to great creativity: his previous collections have included puffer space suits, puffer tents, and, for the collection that hits stores Tuesday, puffer rafts.
