Moncler, Mon Cher

While New York is focused on Spring 2009, I’m looking forward to the first snowfall. And the second.

Although I grew up on the beach, summers in Canada are notoriously short, and our thoughts turn to winter fairly quickly, come September.

This fall, I was helped along by the Gorsuch catalogue, purveyor of all things during- and après-ski chic.

As you might recall, I have a blatantly Alpine-inspired bag, but I don’t look to Gorsuch for its edelweiss embroidery on shoes, its loden jackets, or its Oleana sweaters (although I *do* have an Oleana blanket. Mine's the red-and-white check).

Rather, I focus on the Moncler outerwear, which is usually stylish and sleek.

I like Moncler because it’s sporty. I grew up skiing, not downhill, but racing cross-country (I competed in Nova Scotia’s provincials one year, while there in boarding school).

The Moncler jacket I’d wear is unfussy, sans hood or fur trim. It’s appropriate on a cross-country trail or while stomping off the snow on your way into Holts for some treats.

I’d shove a beret on my head, pull some Norwegian-knit mittens or some long leather gloves, and be ready for winter!

I'm always ogling Moncler jackets. I like the Spy Bag they did for Fendi too.

That tent picture is too cool! I want to go hide away there!

WendyB, Oooh--I don't know the Moncler Spy bag . . .

Kelly, I just saw that you live in a cabin! This tent would be a great "little" addition to your yard!

Funny. I desperately want it to cool off here in MN so I can bust out the tights and boots, but simultaneously fear the descent of Winter with a capital W. Because once it's here, it'll stick around until early May. Aren't you a little apprehensive? Or is it the snow itself you're yearning for, not just frigid temps?

I like the cold as long as there's snow because it insulates my house! But I do prefer a cooler temperature generally (I blame it on my Canadian roots.)

Oh, how I would LOVE to get my hands on that jacket.

enc, It reminds me of your Ducati jacket, only quilted and down-filled!

While the Parisian parades revealed the next trends(tendencies), the future graduates of Moncler France invited each other in the parade of the red range Moncler (Moncler red line), presented by the stylist Giambattista Valli.

Indeed these last ones learnt at the end of September the discontinuance of business of their company which realizes nevertheless an increase of 300 % of its profits and presents an outstanding profitability.
A delegation of the members establishing(constituting) the works council with the support of the representatives of the French federation of the clothing, went(surrendered) to the Ministry of Industry and the Economy to Bercy, to bring to light the (fiscal) grey areas of the file Moncler France.
