Today the announcement came in, that Moncler has joined forces with Japanese brand Visvim. The collaborative collection of men’s apparel and accessories is called Moncler V.

“Remo Ruffini, Moncler’s chairman and creative director, said the collection will bow for fall 2010. The line, which will be priced similarly to Moncler’s regular collection, will consist of about 20 pieces, including apparel items, accessories and footwear.

Visvim designer Hiroki Nakamura said he aims to craft well-structured basics that draw on Moncler’s alpine roots. Ruffini said the collection resembles many looks from Moncler’s archives going back to the Fifties and Sixties. The new men’s line will have a select distribution network consisting of about 150 stores worldwide, including no more than five or six in the U.S. and 25 in Japan.

Separately, Ruffini disclosed he has been in contact with his friend Pharrell Williams and they are thinking about working together on some customized items for the musician. But he stressed it’s too soon to say if the collaboration could be expanded to the retail market.”

We are definitely looking forward to see the collection and will of course keep you posted. More images from the Moncler x Visvim “Moncler V” collection announcement follow after the jump.
