2 Moncler 1952 merges hype sensibilities with top-quality craft

The second incarnation of the Moncler Genius project sees 2 Moncler 1952 pushing design boundaries by seamlessly merging craftsmanship and heritage for the now.

Balance is always key. That’s what the Moncler Genius project has successfully achieved since its first inception: marrying the covetable with top-quality precision that Moncler is known for. It’s the reason why you’re kept warm without looking like a heavily wrapped sausage, especially with the brand’s down jackets.

While each collaborative Moncler Genius collection stretches the imagination and the design possibilities of Moncler, it’s the 2 Moncler 1952 collection—overseen internally by Sergio Zambon, Moncler’s head of menswear—that the combination of hype and craft is most apparent. It’s unequivocally Moncler, but elevated.

2 Moncler 1952 calls to mind the heritage of the brand; 1952 refers to the year that Moncler was established. And with decades of defining moments under its belt, the brand has evolved to function more than what it was originally conceived to be. The iconic down jackets are thinner, lighter and more stylish.

For this latest instalment, 2 Moncler 1952 dug deep into the archives to recontextualise Moncler’s heritage and create an aesthetic that’s in line with the youth culture of today. The relaxed attitude is peppered with jolts of pop spirit, balancing muted colours with vibrant prints and treatments. The technical aspects of the designs ground the collection—a perfect balance of modern intensity and handcrafted excellence.

A thoughtfully designed piece, in-built straps allow easy removal and access to this printed 2 Moncler 1952 puffer jacket, without it ever leaving your body. And as a plus, offers a more relaxed way of wearing (but not really) a puffer jacket. It’s a multi-functional piece that echoes the need for mountain climbers to adapt quick to situational changes.

A classic isn’t just any other classic with 2 Moncler 1952. The collection explores how even something as simple as a pair of trousers can be elevated. A slim-fit pair of tailored trousers, topped with drawstring fastening melds ease and comfort to a classic silhouette—adjustable and removes the need for a belt.

With its roots in Italy, Moncler incorporates tailoring with finesse but modernised with zipped pockets and ample pocket space, and topped with a Moncler patch logo. Moncler employs the same finesse in a deftly crafted hoodie made of technical fabric that’s poised to function just as well as it looks.

2 Moncler 1952 digs deep into Moncler’s archives and brings to the fore the brand’s many achievements. This printed pair of jeans highlights the routes of some of the Earth’s highest peaks, including the K2, which an Italian expedition conquered in 1954 while wearing Moncler. If anything, it’s a reminder of what the human body is capable of.

Moncler’s craft lies in its ability to continuously prove that its signature creation—the quilted down fabric—evolves in as many innovative ways as possible. This pair of 2 Moncler 1952 fully quilted down trousers is remarkably thin but packs in the heat.
