Giving a voice to personal creativity, a symposium of designers are invited to give their unique take on Moncler, and boundaries are broken as the creative hub goes 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 through the year.

Simone Rocha worked her signature romantic shapes in ways that are both dreamy and active. Thinking about dance, she used tulle, the most ethereal of fabrics, for outerwear. Garden pansies, daisies and roses bloom as embroideries, embossing and print allover pieces; frills swarm everywhere.

The outdoorsy Moncler ethos offers a solid frame to a collection that is inspired by Fellini, movement and the fantasy of dress, mixed with spooky and twisted dark elements.

Trapeze dresses in light quilted down with an over layer of tulle move gracefully around the body. Waisted jackets and coats explode in rose fabrications; frills and ruffles are applied on the chest and hood of nylon windbreakers, on skirts and shorts, hoodies and t-shirts.

The trench coat morphs from military garment into a flourish of femininity: rounded and voluminous proportions, embellishments and luxury details.

Even the logo is a crystal patch. Materials are micro taffetas, nylon technique, laqué and crinkled laqué, tulle, nylon légere, in a palette that mixes ivory, red, lime, baby blue, beige, and black. Platforms, slides and little pouches complete the dreamy picture.
