All you need is love — and a budget and a red chocolate-box set large enough for model couples to rise up on through the floor in homage to St Valentine’s Day.
This extraordinary manipulation of hearts and hydraulics was achieved by Moncler Grenoble — the brand that taught the world to wear puffa down jackets. Here they came out on a day when New York was smothered in snow and these stylish winter warmers with a variety of furry trimmings could not have looked more appropriate.
To be truthful, the fashion crowd was too excited to watch this visual fashion celebration. Songs about love ran ticker tape on the backdrop to encourage the audience to sing along. And it all ended, of course, with a kiss — one, or two or ten for each couple. Oh yes! And along with the trays of drinks there were plates of chocolates. Heart shaped — of course.
