Yes, this outerwear is made mostly of rubber. And yes, those are embossed dots that cover the entire outer shell of one of Moncler’s most iconic silhouettes in the Maya jacket. Make what you want out of those characteristics as the unapologetic Pharrell Williams is on a solo mission to return some sex appeal to a wintertime staple. Forged for the occasion of Moncler’s 70th anniversary, this all-black Maya 70 jacket is the last of seven collaborative versions launched in the last month, joining the likes of Palm Angels, Rick Owens, and Pierpaolo Piccioli. And if you are wondering if these dots are just as random as Yayoi Kusama’s application, well, not quite. Those close enough to its wearer will spot that these identical motifs are actually a repetition of Moncler’s logo, giving those hooked on logomania a reason to pick up this Maya 70 when it drops on November 26.
