A traveling bus from Nevada has recently arrived in the Lombard capital. At each stage, a presentation and a series of talks with maitre a penser. Teyana Taylor in her video Lose Each Other, is the first to wear it in public. The singer is at home in the Rick Owens + Moncler down jacket collection. In fact, the upholstered items are conceived as “blankets” with all the protective meanings (from Linus onwards) that they can have at a time such as ours. To launch the collection together with Michèle Lamy, partner and life partner, the designer inventor of glunge in ’94 (grunge glamor) has devised a curious solution in line with the times: a traveling bus that left Nevada and recently arrived in Milan. At each stage, a presentation and a cycle of talks with maitre à penser: a solution that lately is the most popular. After all, to paraphrase Lucio Battisti, fashion is «thoughts and many words».

In Milan, Owens and Lamy organized a cycle of conversations inspired by Jacques Rivette’s arthouse film. L’Amour Fou (1969). Themes: “from the sublime to the modern Milanese culture, up to environmental activism”. All via zoom.
Among the interlocutors, chef Davide Oldani, Vittorio Da Mosto co-founder of Venice Calls and promoter of a sustainable life, as well as the art producer Paolo Rosso at the head of the Microclima environmental conservation programs. The conversations ended with a discussion between Alessio Ascari, founder of the magazine Kaleidoscope, and Myriam Ben Salah, an independent curator, director, and chef curator of the Renaissance Society of Chicago.
In the end, an intimate show with Lamy’s relatives, between the bus and the Owens boutique in Milan via Monte di Pietà. A show extended via Instagram to the digital audience of @Moncler, @RickOwensOnline, and @LaLaMichMich. Moncler land in Milan
