Moncler x Dan Holdsworth Blackout Gouter Jacket

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Working with UK-based photographer Dan Holdsworth, French outdoor legends Moncler have created this striking new version of one of their classic down stuffed designs.

Borrowing one of the incredibly striking images from Holdsworth’s ‘Blackout’ series, a collection of photographs depicting Iceland’s glacial landscape which have been digitally manipulated in order to present a reversal of their original colouration, the Gouter Jacket features a full graphic print shell.

A collaboration that succeeds on a variety of fronts, this heavy-weight down stuffed design is equipped with a high stance collar and generous hood, finished off with a metallic iteration of the classic Moncler logo patch.

Moncler ‘K2 – Sixty Years Later’ Expedition

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

MK_main
 
In 1954, Italians Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni climbed K2, conquering the second-highest mountain on the planet, measuring in at 8,611 metres. For this feat verging on the impossible, the team was kitted out with Moncler down jackets, taken to a high standard of specialisation by Lionel Terray, the French mountaineer who has been a key figure in the brand’s history.

Sixty years after, the feat is being repeated: Italy and Pakistan team up emulating their predecessors by trying to conquer the almighty K2 wearing Moncler.

The mission will also be taking part in the Keep Karakorum Clean campaign, by carrying out clean-up operations in the high-altitude camps of K2. It’s hard to comprehend that from 2005, thanks to these initiatives, 40 tonnes of waste have been collected, and 12 toilets have been installed on the glaciers. The same projects have also trained 70 high-altitude porters, of whom over thirty specialise in mountain rescue, and around 200 trekking guides.

Check out the inspirational image below from the expedition and check out our selection of down jackets from the Moncler section of our webstore.

Moncler Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

Friday, February 8th, 2013

Moncler is an example of a brand that have a clear idea of the purpose for their clothing, refusing to compromise on the quality of their materials and the reliability of their construction methods whilst continuing to place an emphasis on design. As a result, they have been the label of choice for European hikers and skiers for over 60 years, people who like Moncler themselves, refuse to have to choose between sartorial and functional concerns.

The iconic French outerwear company endeavour to instil their creations with a sense of timelessness, believing that their style transcends the here-today-gone-tomorrow nature of modern fashion. Signature down filled jackets and gilets make up essential parts of every Moncler collection and are testament to this. Appearing in a more light weight version for SS13, the Gui Gilet and Acorus Jacket display the impeccable finishes and attention to detail that has made Moncler a mainstay for so many for such a long time.

The SS13 collection also shows how this approach can be translated towards more relaxed pieces, with a selection of t-shirts, polo shirts and crew neck sweats constructed with the same care and eye for design. Their tees feature grosgrain trim at the collar, hoodies are closed with two way branded zips and almost every piece is finished off with their signature felt logo appliqué.

Moncler – Coming Soon

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

Provenance. History. Heritage. There are very few brands that we would class as true heritage brands. Brands that have remained true to their DNA, their vision, and their ethos. Brands that manufacture products that never go out of style, products that span the decades. Brands such as Rolex, Makintosh, Ferrari – and Moncler.

Moncler is a brand with true history, who’s name is synonymous with excellence. The name is in fact an abbreviation of Monestier de Clermont, a mountain village where in 1952 Rene Ramillon, a manufacturer of mountain goods, set up the company and gave life to the down jacket. Initially developed from sleeping bags, in 1954 the new jackets were widely in use by workers in small mountain factories to shelter them from the cold.

mon14

The highly regarded French climber Lional Terray upon returning from an expedition to Canada noticed these new down jackets, and commissioned Rene to produce snowsuits, gloves and sleeping bags to provide high resistance to extreme cold. Each garment was produced to the highest specification using both men’s knowledge and expertise. Moncler’s jackets became the explorer’s jacket of choice, being used on  countless climbs and expeditions.

Over the decades the down jacket developed as it’s use changed from the mountain to the city, from sports to moments in everyday life. The jackets were noticeably slimmed down, but the emphasis of the garment remained on quality and warmth, with only French Goose feathers used for the down. Moncler’s now legendary array of colours were added in the 80′s, when young, adventurous city slickers headed to the slopes. Over the decades Moncler has developed into a global premium brand, with a range of products which spans the seasons, and who’s name is synonymous with quality and provenance.

Coming soon to End…
