For Autumn/Winter 2013 Thom Browne’s latest Gamme Bleu collection for Moncler takes inspiration from the ferocious winter weather of the Scottish highlands, appropriating the artisinal craftsmanship developed there for this incredibly impressive selection characterised by unparalleled build quality and directional design.

A design that has provided essential protection from the elements for the people of the Scottish highlands for generations, the Cable Knit sweater has proven to be a major source of inspiration for this latest collection.

The Cable Knit Crew and Cable Knit Roll Neck take on this time tested technique. Made in Italy from 100% Virgin Wool with an incredibly soft feel and are both finished to the brands exacting standards.

The AW13 collection sees the return of a number of Gamme Bleu staples with new versions of the Button Down Oxford Shirt and an innovative take on the Classic Blazer. These expertly crafted pieces add a selection of alternative detailing to tailoring classics, instilling it with Thom Browne’s characteristically rebellious sophistication.

The BD Oxford shirt, constructed from a fine oxford cotton features a full snap closure with mother of pearl buttons at the collar and the AW13 take on the classic blazer sees it built with a soft wool shell and stuffed with genuine down in a unique quilted design.

The iconic cable knit pattern is a major motif for this collection, with Thom Browne incorporating it in a number of innovative ways. The Shetland Wool Jacket is his latest iteration of that Moncler Classic, the down-stuffed jacket, playing host to a myriad of expertly executed design details and built to the unparalleled construction quality that has been on show in every single Gamme Bleu collection.

Made in Italy from some of the finest materials available it is filled with genuine down, features cable knit style reinforcements at the yoke and is closed with both Brass Riri zippers sourced from Switzerland and hard wearing mountaineering-style clasps.
