During Milan Fashion Week this past February, Moncler launched Moncler Genius, a project that asked eight designers to reimagine its iconic down jacket. Valentino’s creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli, Japanese musician and designer Hiroshi Fujiwara, and Francesco Ragazzi’s Palm Angels are among some of the collaborators. “We have chosen designers that differ greatly from each other as we have always spoken to different generations. We constantly need to offer new experiences and new ideas,” explained Remo Ruffini, Moncler’s Chariman and CEO.
Today, Moncler Genius unveils its latest drop: a collection by British designer Craig Green. Green, who’s known for his bold, unisex clothes, definitely stayed true to his aesthetic. His take on Moncler is sculptural and is an exaggeration of proportions. The result? They’re some badass pieces of armour to weather the elements. Green worked with matte nylon and focused on a color palette of black, white, and blue. “I have always explored ideas of protection and functionality within my work, something that is also at the core of Moncler’s heritage. I thought it would be interesting for these ideas to be pushed further,” Green commented.
As part of the launch, SSENSE will present the 5 Moncler Craig Green installation in the SSENSE boutique in Montreal, Canada, on August 22nd. Check back with us for more coverage on the Moncler Genius project.
