And if the high-tech met the sewing...
Impossible is not Pierpaolo Piccioli. The creator proves it with this brilliantly theatrical version of the ruffled jacket.

Full member of the new creative hub Moncler Genius, Valentino’s thinking head, Pierpaolo Piccioli, excels in gender syncretism. Proof is with this jacket called “Isadora”, whose opera is as much sculpturality as hyper-technical. In line with the creations of Piccioli, especially in haute couture, this cloak-cape 3.0 ensures a look of sci-fi nun, wearing a balaclava in the air of time and gloved with muffles “legs”. The fluffy feather flocks, cut in a lacquered fabric, contribute to the magnetism of the whole. This is the genius of the Italian designer who, far from trying to erase the topos - sometimes unflattering - sportswear exaggerates the features. Morality: the Isadora will delight who loves to swallow the slopes...an opera Puccini in the ear
