The origins of the name lies in its very roots: Moncler is in fact an abbreviation of Monestier-de-Clermont, a mountain village near Grenoble. In the beginning, Moncler only made quilted sleeping bags, a single model of a lined hooded cape and tents with a telescopic structure and an external flysheet. These robust, functional articles immediately proved a hit with the public, as the new social phenomenon of mountain holidays began to take hold. Learn more about Moncler HK below.

Founder Réné Ramillion established Moncler in the French Alpine village of Monastier-de-Clermont in 1952, manufacturing a simple range of tents, sleeping bags, and quilted jackets designed to protect workers from the cold. Mountaineer Lionel Terray discovered the jackets’ potential for protection in harsh climates, and the brand transformed into a performance outfitter for skiers and mountaineers. A streamlined, lightweight down jacket developed for the French alpine skiing team at the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble became the precursor to Moncler’s signature model. Now a global lifestyle brand seen on mountains and city streets alike, Moncler continues to develop urbane and masculine styles of quilted down jackets, vests, parkas, knit accessories, and signature tipped polo shirts under president and creative director Remo Ruffini.
Moncler x Simone Rocha
Staying true to her distinctive modern romantic aesthetic, British designer Simone Rocha has unveiled the label’s collection for Moncler’s consistently ambitious Moncler Genius Project. Exploring the expansive fabric and textile possibilities that Moncler allows for, the designs capture Rocha’s floral, delicate style, mixing it with a wildly experimental element by introducing complex knitwear patterns, fitted, pearl-laced hoods and asymmetric duvet fits. Drawing upon a wide range of influences, the collection taps into the classic uniforms of Girl Guides and seeks to redefine concepts of “protection.”
Traditionally the territory of ‘function-over-form,’ male-centric clothing, Rocha seeks to offer an unashamedly feminine spin on these notions of protection, testing the limits of Moncler’s nylon technology by creating puffer capes, wearable structures and apparel habitats that balance her own vision with the vibrant creativity of the wider Moncler Genious Project.
Moncler x Noir Kei Ninomiya
Noir Kei Ninomiya is one of COMME des Garçons’s youngest sub-labels, but it’s quickly become known for collections of all-black, technically-crafted clothing. That eye for detail carries over for the brand’s Moncler Genius collaboration, dubbed “6 Moncler.” Following Hiroshi Fujiwara’s 7 Moncler line, this release centres around feminine silhouettes crafted from textured leather and shiny nylon textiles. Intricate workmanship appears throughout, with the fabrics manipulated into detailed ruffling, ruching and applique, with Moncler’s signature puffer design revamped into vests, coats and jackets sporting disparate quilting patterns and three-dimensional flowers. Down-filled tubes are knitted into bulky pullovers, cardigans, mufflers and zippered blousons, with leather harnesses adding punk edge to pleated skirts.
Moncler x Valextra
Designed by Moncler in-house creatives Veronica Leoni and Sergio Zambon, the 2 Moncler 1952 collection boasts an impressive range of duvet-heavy products, including teddy-fleece parkas, uniform-like structured suits and longer silhouettes. Each designer’s contributions contain individual twists on conventions and subtle touches that hark back to their own personal style. Leoni’s, for example, interprets the Moncler code with a blend of layering, materials and influences such as vintage, biker-inspired aesthetic, complete with retro knit flares and patches designed in partnership with London brand Itchy Scratchy Patchy. Zambon’s contribution to the collection can be seen in the sleek, 70s influences present in the colour palette and sophisticated sartorial elements that showcase a new, more relaxed interpretation of formality.
For this iteration, Moncler presents new pieces created with luxury leather goods brand Valextra. Drawing inspiration from architecture, design and its Milan roots, Valextra created a range of bags and accessories to accompany the forward-thinking outerwear that traditionally constitutes Moncler Genius collections.
