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.
