Designer Thom Browne chose a rowing theme for the Moncler Gamme Bleu spring/summer 2016 collection. Browne put together fictional rowing teams with oars and boats for the runway. The collection features ivy-league-inspired nautical stripes, zip-up polos, seersucker, kit bags, bucket hats, and deck shoes.
Browne explains: ‘There were a lot of different variations on rowing and crewing stripes: team stripes. There was astrakhan [white] in the striped pattern, cashmere with grosgrain that was embroidered into the stripes, and, of course, there were printed and woven fabrics that were in the stripes. There was terry cloth that had an inlay of sequin in it. There was men’s suiting fabric that had seam-taped stripes—so there were a lot of variations.’
