The new collection by Craig Green for Moncler Genius Including the lightest outerwear possible

Just a month after the launch of the 7 Moncler Fragment Hiroshi Fujiwara collection, the first after the stop imposed by the health emergency, Moncler presented the new collection in collaboration with Craig Green5 MONCLER CRAIG GREEN, the latest chapter of its Genius Project.

Back in December he took by surprise the whole fashion industry with his packable down jackets; for the new collection, Green pushed functionality to the limits of the abstract: working with volumes and elaborating them around the body, the designer has created a three-dimensional collection. His goal was to produce "the lightest outerwear possible", using a single material: micro ripstop nylon, a very light and extremely robust fabric, typical of Moncler. And if it is true, as he has often repeated, that if he had not become a stylist he would have been a sculptor, it is not surprising that his jackets rather than clothing resemble real works of art.

For the 2020 collection, Green has focused on the concepts of transparency, security and protection, developing bold and functional forms and studying new methods to bring simplicity to its extreme. At first glance, the pieces look like a deflated air mattress but, thanks to a series of hinges, once worn they leave room for the body, giving volume to the garments themselves. Green used the padding almost like a print, made it visible and gave it a completely new meaning thanks to the play of transparencies in the bright hues of pink, green, blue, yellow and red. Some garments with black and white graphics are characterized by the printed reproduction of the main Moncler silhouettes, whose technical know-how they celebrate.

Born in London, Craig Green is a fashion designer respected all over the world for the creativity and freedom of expression that have always made his work unique. The principles of its design have remained faithfully rooted in the beauty and simplicity of functional clothing, without ever giving up his most creative drifts. It is no coincidence that some of his creations are part of the permanent collection of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. After being selected among the eight designers chosen to redefine the style of the iconic down jacket, at the launch of the Genius project, the relationship between him and Moncler remained one of the most solid in the whole fashion industry.

5 MONCLER CRAIG GREEN is available in Moncler boutiques, on and in selected retailers all over the world.
