King of the Mountain?
If you're in Verbier this winter you should visit the Moncler shop in the centre of town. The window display really is a work of art. Having said that I am undecided about Moncler ski wear. It is one of the most expensive ski brands that you can buy and often people settle for plain, puffa, fur trim, Moncler jackets. Decidedly boring. As you already know (I have said it often enough) I am also against skiing in puffa jackets as you can't control your temperature with layers. Many Moncler jackets are plain in colour and plain in design. Not inspiring and, in my view, not worth the money.
However, some of the Moncler collection is inspiring. In fact I would go as far to say that it is the most fashion forward thinking ski brand available. Some of the Moncler collection looks like it belongs on the catwalk, a look that is hard to achieve with ski wear. I have highlighted my favourites below, I particularly like the mountain scape jacket. Although all the colours used below are quite simple, the shape and design are what really stand out. I just wish I saw people wearing the more daring Moncler ski wear, .
