From children’s books through TV commercials all the way to fashion advertising, Jean-Philippe Delhomme has an incredible sense of animating reality. And for his latest fashion collaboration with Moncler, Delhomme has created one big visual holiday, interpreting a tropical vacation through a series of three atmospheric postcards printed onto a range of highly-crafted Moncler wardrobe staples.

The Italian brand is already known for their hi-tech approach to clothes – feather-light puffer jackets and waterproof outerwear have become Moncler’s signature, but with Delhomme’s brush and the world’s most famous beaches including Capri and Venice serving as the inspiration, a simple t-shirt gets a complete makeover. While the printed t-shirts evoke the high-summer cocktail-drinking atmosphere of Côte d'Azur, the illustrated rain jacket roars with humour. Who doesn’t want to wear a sandy beach on their sleeve while being soaked in the hail?

You don’t really need the backdrop of the French Riviera to wear the Delhomme x Moncler collection. Style the t-shirts with a denim A-line skater skirt and a pair of 1970s disco heels for a night out, or wear it with a pair of beige linen trousers and classic white trainers. Whether you go the fun route or a more elegant one,the spirit of this staycation/vacation collection will bring the temperature up, wherever you are. Even under the pouring rain.

The Moncler x Delhomme Postcards collection is available to shop from moncler.com with the t-shirts starting at £310.
