Moncler: Exploring new territories
MONCLER GENIUS 2020 EXPLORING NEW TERRITORIES
Moncler Genius extends its pioneering spirit in 2020 as it continues to enhance its exploration into new horizons. Giving a voice to personal creativity, a symposium of designers were invited to give their unique take on Moncler, and boundaries were broken as the creative hub went beyond fashion into the world of experience. Each Moncler Genius collection has a dedicated launch date, ensuring a facilitation of personal expression that rolls out ceaselessly throughout the year.
2 – MONCLER 1952
MEN’S COLLECTION — SERGIO ZAMBON
An urban anthropologist, Sergio Zambon turns the study of youth movements – both real and imagined – into an opportunity for design.
This season the energy of 2020 clashes with a 70s pop feel while iconic characters such as the preppy, the hippie and the punk inspire the attitude and items of the collection: from the chino pants to the parka, from metropolitan black to the idea of using blankets as capes. All of it is seen through the Moncler filter – laquè nylon, heavy satin for outerwear, and the down jacket in every version from upholstery corduroy to print – and blended in an all-inclusive mix that reflects the reality of the contemporary customer. In order to gain depth and unexpected nuance, the collection is conceived as a collaboration with the whole city of Los Angeles. Through contributions from key LA-based creative players, Moncler gets a touch of the city’s sun-kissed, laid back spirit. Libertine provide rhinestone and glitz used on shirts and sleeveless jackets, UNDEFEATED the black nylon basics seen anew with a punk twist; Balt Getty devised lively street art patterns and AD.III the industrial metal jewelry worn on top of down jackets. The color palette is a mix of emerald, green and Prussian blue, rusty Seventies tones and black lit with bright touches of glue pink mixed with orange. Accessories highlight the anthropological mix of styles and decades: Sevenities flat sneakers, boots, Eighties pointy boots, fur hats, plus practical duvet-carriers.
