Created for the men that challenge the high altitudes and a firm favourite with socialites and film stars for their holidays in the most exclusive winter resorts, Moncler fits in perfectly in town, too. It is a new world just waiting to embrace it, a world which appreciates the perfect combination of practicality and lightness,essentiality and elegance. Its flexibility is constantly finding new ways of expressing itself, through Moncler Gamme Rouge, a women’s haute couture collection designed by Giambattista Valli, and Moncler Gamme Bleu, a men’s collection designed by Thom Browne, creating a new way of combining sartorial skill with sporting origins.
As a result Moncler offers new interpretations of the concept of the quilted jacket, which has now become an integral part of the world of luxury, whilst the brand’s confines have now expanded to embrace the summer season, too. And it is the very intuition of every-changing combinations of technology and nature, mountain and city, functionality and aesthetics that make Moncler the quilted jacket par excellence. A transversal icon which expresses authentic and individual elegance that is beyond fashion.
Moncler was established in Grenoble, France, in 1952 and is currently based in Milan, Italy. Over the years, the brand has combined its style with ongoing technological research, together with the help of mountaineering experts. Moncler collections are accordingly the quintessence of outerwear, combining the most extreme needs with day-to-day city life. In 2003 Remo Ruffini took over the Maison of which he is now Chairman and Creative Director. Moncler produces and handles the direct distribution of men’s and women’s collections and accessories through direct boutiques and the most exclusive Department Stores and international multi-brand stores.
