Moncler, a brand at its peak.
Making ski jackets more accessible, turning them into real fashion items and elevating them to the status of must-have? That's the bold challenge taken up by Moncler with its famous goose down jackets. For over 60 years now, the company from Isère has been creating luxury collections combining an urban look with the world of sportswear.
Making mountainwear more accessible.
This French brand, set up in 1952, owes its name to the town MONestier-de-CLERmont, which is where René Ramillon and André Vincent, the founders, were from. In 1954, these two duvet and alpine tent-makers launched their first winter jacket filled with goose down, which was made popular by mountaineer Lionel Terray, who fell for the quilted jacket that provides warmth and comfort. In 1968, the label from Isère dressed the French team for the Winter Olympics in Grenoble, and very quickly the famous colourful jacket was absolutely everywhere on the best ski slopes, worn by celebrities like Brigitte Bardot, Alain Delon and Catherine Deneuve. Taken over by Remo Ruffini, the French company finally became Italian in 2003.
Moncler doesn't only design clothing, bur also offers a range of accessories and a line of leather goods. Somewhere between luxury goods and adventure equipment, the handbags and backpacks for men and women follow easily recognisable codes: structured forms, high-quality materials and fabrics, quilted finishes or fine metal details, etc. Each item displays urban, sporty style whilst managing to retain an element of sophistication, like the George backpack and related versions Georgette and Georgine.
Moncler: A luxury brand recognized around the world.
Moncler's popularity is also due to its collaborations with renowned designers, influencers and celebrities. The brand has worked with brands such as Off-White, Simone Rocha and Valentino to offer exclusive collections. Additionally, the likes of Pharrell Williams, Chiara Ferragni and Drake were spotted wearing Moncler products, which negated the brand's fame.
