Moncler V by Visvim Hooded Down-filled Ide Gilet

The Ide gilet is from the Autumn — Winter 2010 — 2011 season, the first of the two Moncler V collections, designed by Hiroki Nakamura of Visvim. The collection comprised a small range of clothing, footwear and accessories inspired by actual 1950′s and 60′s pieces from the Moncler’s archives.

The influence of vintage pieces on the Ide gilet is immediately apparent: the outer shell is waxed cotton in washed-out dark blue, the lining is soft cotton with the Moncler logo ‘stamp’ motive and the silhouette is longer and slimmer-fitting than that of contemporary down-filled jackets.

A closer look reveals numerous beautiful details — smaller-than-regular-Moncler unsigned snap fasteners, drawcords with distressed leather toggles, slightly twisted matt-finish metal zip fastener with a leather puller, removable tricolour straps inside the vest to carry it on the shoulders. The down-filled hood is also removable and the strip of fabric it is attached to by means of snap fasteners can be hidden inside the collar when the hood is removed. The vest has two side pockets with press stud closures and one inside pocket with a zipper closure. The sleeve openings are elasticated to keep the warmth in and the chill out.

Both, Moncler and Visvim are famous for using the best available materials for the clothes they make and pieces from their collaborative Moncler V collection are no exception — the vest features Swiss-made Riri zip fasteners throughout, the exterior is cotton blended with polyamide and polyurethane for strength and waterproofing, the lining is premium medium-weight 100% cotton fabric and the filling is finest quality duvet neuf, goose down with 4 tufts (Afnor G 32003 Regualtion classifies down according to the number of tufts: from 1 to 4). The use of the best 4-tuft down determines the vest’s puffiness, thermal insulation and a unique lightness.

The gilet features Moncler’s branding — the signature Moncler logo patch re-done in subtle off-white colour and the Moncler wording stamped the inside of the snap fasteners.
