One year into Moncler’s groundbreaking Moncler Genius project that entrusts the brand’s creative identity to some of the world’s most talented designers, a new set of collaborators is poised to take the stage.
Reaffirming the project’s mission of “One house, different voices,” Moncler continues to diversify its stable of Geniuses by adding Matthew Williams of 1017 ALYX 9SM, one of the hottest luxury streetwear brands in the game right now, as well as rising star Richard Quinn, the London-based designer, and illustrator, graphic artist, (and the fashion industry’s beloved meme-generator) Hey Reilly.
The goal of the project is simple: each carefully selected Genius collaborator is given free reign to interpret Moncler’s iconic archive as they see fit, with each individual collection coming together to form the overall cohesive Moncler identity.
The full Moncler Genius collections will be revealed February 20, exactly one year after the initial project launched, and the roster is impressive: Pierpaolo Piccioli & Liya Kebede, Sergio Zambon and Veronica Leoni for Moncler 1952, Sandro Mandrino for Moncler Grenoble, Simone Rocha, Craig Green, Matthew Williams of 1017 ALYX 9SM, Richard Quinn, Fragment/Hiroshi Fujiwara, Francesco Ragazzi of Palm Angels, and Poldo Dog Couture for your four-legged friends.
Update: Highsnobiety will be live on the ground for the official announcement of this year’s project in Milan. Wednesday, February 20. Keep it locked on our Instagram for updates.
