This season Moncler has expanded its Genius project to partner with twelve key designers who have collaborated with the brand on capsule collections that will drop each month for the next twelve months. Among the line-up is Valentino Creatiev Director Pierpaolo Picciolo, Richard Quinn, British designer Simone Rocha and Hiroshi Fujiwara. Each designer has created their own aesthetic that brings together their unique vision and the Moncler brand identity. Some of the highlights are below:
For his collection Pierpaolo Picciolo combined his signature style of long voluminous gowns with Moncler’s love for padding. Colourful prints and designs came courtesy of Picciolo’s friend Liya Kebede who used the personality of her sustainable Ethiopian fashion brand LemLem to create vibrant personalities. Puffer boots, dresses and bags were truly Moncler but the Picciolo twist was undeniable.
Designer Richard Quinn has been making headlines for the past two seasons, and fresh from showing his collection in London he presented his collaboration with Moncler. A bold floral parade of oversized, overly colourful designs.
Moncler 1952 (Donna) was designed by Veronica Leoni who was formally at Celine. Her collection was elegant with modern lines and sharp cuts, accentuated by the Moncler puffer jacket.
For her second time partnering with Moncler Simone Rocha turned to nature for her inspiration. The neutral collection was set in a forest, with the idea of a camping trip setting. Padded jackets were decorated with feminine bows and laces and paired with knee-high socks and boots.
Hiroshi Fujiwara’s menswear collection was all about being outdoors. Fit for a mountaineer the collection featured military style pieces in a colour palette of neutral khaki and navy. Fujiwara really looked to the technology of Moncler to produced winter looks that were extreme but very wearable and stylish.
