Moncler releases the Pierpaolo Piccioli Genius collection Combining mysticism and futurism

Through the summer and fall nss has been closely following the innovative Genius project from Moncler where 7 designers have taken turns to design various capsule collections. So far we’ve seen Hiroshi Fujiwara, Kei Ninomiya, Craig Green, Simon Rosha, 1952, and last week we reported on the ambitious worldwide drop of the Palm Angels Genius collection. Today sees the next drop in line coming to market, with Pierpaolo Piccioli's futurist women's collection. 

Pierpaolo Piccioli has created graphic shapes that are as mystical as they are futuristic. His Medieval Madonnas are seen through a space-age lense merging form with essence, which for Pierpaolo is the very definition of purity. Stripping back Moncler’s classic use of duvet to its bare essence. Silhouettes ooze a couture feel while keeping the sense of functionality which is a Moncler pillar

Consisting of zip-up hooded capes, both long and short, skirts, complete with padded duvet spats and padded duvet gloves. The pieces become the building blocks of high-impact graphic looks. The sum of its elements is highlighted by the contrast of saturated colors. Items come in a pictorial palette of ivory, black, amethyst, imperial yellow, bright green, orange, red and cherry red. Hues are meant to be mixed rather than matched. 

To highlight the sense of angelic spirituality, Pierpaolo worked with the monk and artist Sidival Fila, who created the abstract and angelic canvases for the installation.

The 1 MONCLER PIERPAOLO PICCIOLI drops today October 11 in flagship boutiques and Moncler’s online store.
