Moncler Grenoble Fall 2012: Fashion On Ice

Alexander Wang isn't the only designer to show fashion in the dark. French Alpine label Moncler, never one to take itself too seriously (see: organizing a flashmob in Grand Central and placing models on scaffolding over the Hudson), took a page from the downtown king of cool's book this season, debuting its collection on the toe-stop with an after-sunset skate routine Sunday at Central Park's Wollman Rink.

As we shivered and sipped hot chocolates from the sidelines on the coldest night of New York fashion week, we were kind of jealous of the models—professional skaters from the Ice Theatre of New York—who rocked tri-colored Space Odyssey-influenced puffer coats and jackets made from a material used for bags in the sixties called Naplak to the beats of MIA's "Bad Girls" and Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York."
