Jonathan Anderson, the latest Moncler Genius collaborator, is presenting a limited edition "exhibition-in-a-box" to celebrate the coming together.
The colorful box riffs off the idea of an archive box, typically used to preserve important records and documents. The images are intended to be taken apart and arranged according to personal taste and creative whims.
Inside the box, you'll find a personal message from Anderson that reads: "I am happy to share with you the crowning achievement of my 1 MONCLER JW ANDERSON collection. 'Exhibition in a box' is a piece to interact with at home, while the world still struggles to find new ways to spend time together. I hope that this initiative, with the incredible images of Tyler Mitchell, will be to your liking."
Mitchell, who is known for Beyoncé's Vogue September 2018 cover shoot and monograph I Can Make You Feel Good, captured the JW Anderson x Moncler pieces in the British countryside earlier this summer. The collection, which showed at Fashion Week back in February, was based on the idea of an "inflated archive" and riffs off the idea of applying Moncler's 3D fabrics to fan-favorite silhouettes by JW Anderson. The highly stylized collection includes pastel pink outerwear with soft inflated spikes protruding from the fabrics, drawstring-tied knee-high puffy boots, and, as seen below, hats big enough to function as a parasol.
The Moncler Genius x JW Anderson box is available in selected stores only.
