Moncler has teamed with Parisian-born artist Jean-Philippe Delhomme to create a series of three postcard-inspired prints. Inspired by famous international seaside destinations including Venice Beach, Saint-Tropez and Capri, the prints, donned in bright colors, such as yellow, blue and red, decorate some of the key pieces of the brand’s men’s and women’s spring lineups.
The range includes four T-shirt styles, a hooded raincoat, a pair of men’s swim shorts and a shopping bag. Priced from 230 euros, or $250 at current exchange rate, for swimwear, to 995 euros, or $1,083, for the raincoat, the pieces are now available at Moncler outlet flagships, as well as at the brand’s online shop.
Rendered with digital printing technique, the illustrations give the fabrics a 3-D feel fusing technological research with craftsmanship. The range echoes beach lifestyle yet incorporates urban feel, reflecting the spirit of the brand’s spring collection.
During his career, Delhomme developed several collaborations with fashion Moncler brands and publications, including GQ France and Vogue Japan. In the early Nineties, his advertising campaign for the Barneys New York department store was such a huge success that it appeared on billboards across the United States.
