Over the top, expensive, rare: The world’s most exquisite design objects
dare to dream? Wish lists should be over the top, expensive and rare. This holiday season, we've rounded up some of the year's most indulgent design items -- from luxury collections and exclusive fashion collaborations to simply exquisite objects.
Throughout 2018, Italian skiwear brand Moncler has been dropping one-off collaborations with high caliber designers as part of its Genius project, first presented at Milan Fashion Week in March. The most noteworthy to date is probably the one with Maison Valentino creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli, which debuted in October.
For the capsule collection, Piccioli presented a series of rather voluminous outerwear inspired by the Renaissance, reinventing Moncler's classic lightweight duvets into structured couture pieces that are hybrids between a coat and a gown. All in bright, vivid colors, the garments are pretty dramatic -- and make a definite statement coat.
