‘Unbeatable technical performance for the most extreme sporting moments’. This is the ethos behind Moncler Grenoble, the high-tech offshoot of the feted manufacturer of uber-insulated parkas. Of course, the requirement for super-Tog outerwear doesn’t exist all year round (unless you call the Arctic Circle home), so for its new-season line the Franco-Italian brand has devised a collection of lightweight, wind-proof gear featuring structural heat-bonded inserts, reinforced zips inspired by wetsuits, and fully water-resistant nappa detailing. The colour scheme references the mountains, from ice white to a glacial grey, although for the more flamboyant (or safety-conscious), this quilted, jersey-lined Berneval jacket also comes in a retina-dazzling orange.
