Moncler drops its new 1952 Genius Collection  The second collection in the Next Chapter of Moncler Genius

Continuing their new creative and business vision Moncler Genius, which involves different creative minds, each one devoted to several interpretations of Moncler’s rich heritage while creating forward-thinking contemporary collections. After the presentation of Craig Green's new capsule a few weeks ago, the time has come for the second collection in the Next Chapter of Moncler Genius, with the turn coming once again to the Moncler in-house designed 1952 range. 

2 Moncler 1952 is a visually striking edit of Moncler classics, contextualized in a contemporary urban scenario. The interpretation is bold for men and quietly assertive for women. The men’s collection oozes a pop and urban zest, as highlighted by prints featuring stars and letters spelling Moncler out and loud, devised with artist Hey Reilly and swarming all-over the surfaces. Shapes and materials are functional: zippered jackets, field jackets, parkas, car coats, track-pants, and Bermuda shorts come in cotton, nylon or ripstop fabrications.Geometries and intarsia create vibrancy as the solid bright alternate with neutral tones or total black with vivid touches for a high visibility effect. Zippered pockets allow items to be functionally folded and packed; padded collars are another utilitarian detail. The giant size logo recurs as a mark.

The women’s collection is an inclusive reinterpretation of wardrobe staples – from the blouson to the pleated skirt, from the parka to the slouchy pant to the cozy jumper – seen anew in subtle plays of volumes, textures and shapes to address a multiplicity of women. The mix of technical and precious materials – laqué nylon, technical faille, cotton drill, printed crepe de chine – is a defining note, just as the interplay of the functional and the decorative gives items a unique feel. Oversized drawstrings recur, allowing the wearer to manipulate and adjust volumes. The layering of pieces in spirited and intuitive. Prints add rhythm to a classic palette of neutrals, blacks and blues with dashes of red.

2 MONCLER 1952 is available from today, January 31st in Moncler boutiques, via the Moncler site and in select wholesale networks worldwide.
