High-end ski gear boutique Moncler has devoted its current windows to mineshaft chic, dressing mannequins in emergency-orange coats and placing them in a very convincing reproduction of a cave. Is this a reference to this fall's Chilean miner crisis? And if so, is it in questionable taste? We're leaning towards "no," since everyone made it out alive—and since it's hard to get too upset about a window display when Kenneth Cole is busy making infinitely more offensive Egypt jokes on the company Twitter.
