Discover the geniuses behind the eight groundbreaking collections for women and men, all inspired by the iconic Moncler down jacket
1 Moncler Pierpaolo Piccioli
Designed by the Creative Director of Valentino, Pierpaolo Piccioli, this collection blends the couture craftsmanship of the Italian house with the functionality of Moncler. Medieval, ascetic references merge with a futuristic sensibility in the A-line silhouettes of hooded capes, skirts, spats and gloves, all made entirely of down filled nylon. The wide range of saturated colours allows the wearer to mix and match to create a look that is truly their own.
2 Moncler 1952
Moncler 1952 is an homage to the brand's year of birth and defines the natural evolution, of over 65 years of history, based on technical research and creativity. Moncler's trademark classics are reinterpreted with pop colors and contrasting enlarged logo. This means colours, prints, and fabrics—like corduroy, flashy nylon, and nubby sweaters—that straddle the line between vintage and modern are used on clothes that can take you everywhere from the streets to St. Moritz.
3 Moncler Grenoble
A sense of optimism and ‘60s flair comes to the slopes thanks to Moncler Grenoble. Head Designer Sandro Mandrino took on the challenge of working with patterns, prints, and fabrics that aren’t usually found on the mountain, but through Moncler’s technical know-how, turned them into outerwear winners. With everything from checks and stripes, to floral prints, to velvet, covering ski suits, pea coats, turtlenecks, and more, you’re all set for the winter season.
4 Moncler Simone Rocha
Simone Rocha creates a uniform from her signature voluminous and deconstructed aesthetic. Inspired by 19th century Victorian Mountain climbers, Rocha juxtaposes femininity with function, and plays with silhouette, shape, and structure to create new ideas of what outerwear can be. Floral embellishment and embroidery is a key motif that appears on coats, skirts, knitwear, and accessories, which include leather hiking boots, down gloves, and bags. Welcome to the romantic, feminine, reimagined outdoors.
5 Moncler Craig Green
Clothing as protection is a through line in Craig Green’s design work, and for Moncler Genius he has created contemporary armour in the form of padded, stitched jackets and pants. The sculptural forms envelop the body without impeding it, a soft cocoon that is large yet also light. A strict palette of black, white, and navy are used for the avant-garde outerwear, with hits of olive, red, and grey added to some of the more contemporary pieces.
6 Moncler Noir Kei Ninomiya
The creation of wearable geometry is at the heart of Kei Ninomiya’s designs for Moncler Genius. Pieces of leather and nylon are manipulated together in quilted patterns and as appliques to make familiar feminine shapes look brand new thanks to the unique materials and construction. The slick, all-black collection of shapely coats, dresses with synched waists, flared skirts, and trousers is darkly romantic, striking a nuanced and engaging balance between punk and pretty.
7 Moncler Fragment Hiroshi Fujiwara
With denim, hoodies, varsity jackets and t-shirts mixed in among padded coats, Moncler Fragment combines streetwear and culture consistently. Creative Director Hiroshi Fujiwara, who is also a musician, producer and DJ, uses his music background as inspiration to remix the Moncler DNA with streetwear in his contemporary collection. The word “Backstage” takes centre stage on his coats, while detachable “Moncler Fragment” badges let you be loud and proud or underground about what you’re wearing.
8 Moncler Palm Angels
Logomania takes over at Moncler Palm Angels, where Francesco Ragazzi’s collection puts the Moncler Genius logo and viral slogans “Make It Rain” and “I’m So High” front and centre on the bold and graphic clothes. Black and white are joined by red to keep things bright, covering puffers, tracksuits, parkas, sweatshirts, and strappy sandal-sneakers. It’s a casual and provocative mix that embodies Ragazzi’s concept of being the gift shop of the Moncler Genius museum.
