About the designer

Abbreviated from its hometown of Monestier-de-Clermont, Moncler was founded in 1952 by René Ramillon and Andrè Vincent. The creative duo set out from the French Alpine village to construct quilted sleeping bags, unaware their creations would spark a creative process that resulted in the world’s most renowned down-filled jackets.

The French brand, now based in Italy, is favoured for its technological heritage and timeless DNA. The label swiftly adjusted from crafting lifestyle gear to designing lightweight and highly coveted goose-down jackets. The down apparel even headlined in the 1968 Grenoble Winter Olympics. When Remo Ruffini became both CEO and creative director in 2003, Moncler was relaunched. The Italian entrepreneur elevated the athletic-inspired silhouettes to exclusive garments, ensuring the styles would attract a wider array of customers. High-quality materials met unrivalled experience, resulting in a range that transcended outerwear. Unique detailing, graphic patterns and a distinct knack for innovation now epitomise the Moncler philosophy.

Collection autumn/winter 2017

Renowned for their high-quality outerwear, Moncler did not fail to fulfil the expectations for their autumn/winter 2017 collection. The designs showed a fascinating experimental turn featuring statement down jackets in bright green and purple hues with contrasting lining and statement zipper sleeves. Soft pink hues were featured in an A-line puffer jacket, a velvet down jacket and turtleneck knit. Additional down jackets were patterned with a vintage ski-slope print or presented in a matte silver fabric, lined with white shearling. The silhouettes were accentuated by intriguing accessories as ski goggles further served as fury warm headbands. The entire collection was enhanced by functional layering and fearless combinations of materials abiding by the brand’s meticulous heritage.
