Neither snow nor rain nor wind machine can keep the Moncler Gamme Rouge girl from her sporty-chic outerwear. Giambattista Valli and his set designers threw all of that and then some at the models, a diverse bunch that included the likes of Loulou de la Falaise Klossowski and Kirsten Owen alongside the newbies. After almost a solid month of looking at fashion, it isn't necessarily easy to engage with a coat collection, so the runway pyrotechnics were a smart move. There's nothing like a little inclement weather to create a mood.

Valli's jackets ran the gamut: parkas in color-blocked techno fabrics, silk evening puffers, neon furs, and his beloved leopard prints. To make sure the attention was on the outerwear, the models wore leggings and tall Dr. Martens. Danielle Z sported only a black sweater dress until a male model loaned her his parka and they strolled off the stage arm in arm. The couple that wears Moncler together stays together? With the way the models hustled and bustled, it wasn't always clear what you were looking at, but other than the plastic tinsel coats, everything seemed like it could hop off the runway and onto the street. You couldn't always say that about Gamme Rouge presentations before, which qualifies this one as a success.
