2021 is coming at us strong with surprise fashion collaboration after surprise fashion collaboration. Coming up next is a spring/summer 2021 edition of 1 Moncler JW Anderson, making it the second time that British brand JW Anderson is involved in the Moncler Genius project.
Unlike previous seasons, Moncler has been relatively quiet on the Moncler Genius line-up for 2021 with no prior announcement of the collaborators to expect for the rest of the year. So far, the it has kicked things off with 2 Moncler 1952 back in January and is slated to continue with 1 Moncler JW Anderson this 1 March.
Even then, there has been little to no information about the collection save for a teaser image of a washed up sail boat and the collaborative anchor logo. It's hardly any confirmation but we can deduce that the collection perhaps is inspired by nautical influences. Or at the very least, is conceptualised around the idea of exploration and expedition. But of course, still within the realm of JW Anderson with manipulations of Moncler's signature down fabric.
We can confirm, however, that the pieces in the gallery above will be part of the collection. Thanks to some sleuthing, we now have a slightly better idea of what to expect from the spring/summer 2021 collection. Right off the bat, it will seem to be somewhat less convoluted in terms of design aesthetics (the debut effort showcased JW Anderson's iconic past gender-bending designs reworked in down) and a considerably more wearable feel. Still, there's the use of Jonathan Anderson's favoured patchwork treatments done in striking colours and contrast stitching, with almost every piece marked with the 1 Moncler JW Anderson logo patch.
The 1 Moncler JW Anderson spring/summer 2021 collection will be available in Moncler boutiques from 1 March 2021.
