Genius is the dream, where Collection has the consistency, and Grenoble the DNA. It was a collection split into two, with an opening section aping ancient couture shapes defined by huge skirts cinched to the body above, and a second Moncler Jacket that was far more fitting.
I love skintones, and I do love color, but with black and white, it's completely different from reality. This Fujiwara sortie for Moncler was extra - meta thanks to collaborations within the collaboration: There was a biker by the Brit brand Lewis Leathers and a Converse Chuck 70 and Jack Purcell.
This was applied with the collaboration of a slew of contemporary Los Angeles-based creatives, including Libertine (prints), Undefeated (nylons), Balt Getty (prints and bags), and AD.III (jewelry). Although so rooted in the last century, this collection looked - flared pants apart - convincingly contemporary and grounded in the reality of a creative and thrift - sifting dress sense.
The overall collaboration is divided into two drops, with the "Backstage" collection available now and the second capsule (which also includes a range of flannels and sweaters) to release in December. The first release features a stark palette of black, white, and a muted army green, while the forthcoming collection utilizes Moncler's iconic reds and blues.
Moncler's roots are firmly in ski and mountaineering but you needn't pursue either in order to don a colourful down jacket, monogrammed hat or a piece of the house's popular knitwear. With every 'Genius' collection Moncler reinvents itself, reinterpreting their classic aesthetic to create everything from covetable streetwear collections to dog couture. The latest Genius collection sees a return to the house's heritage with a skiwear drop featuring technical fabrics and innovative construction which ensure proper function on the slopes. Moncler's history of mountain wear apparel allows them to effortlessly produce pieces made for snow, but with their Genius collections, they challenge themselves (and us) to see classic ski wear in a new way.
