Step aside H&M and Supreme, Moncler just showed the fashion world how true-blue high fashion collaborations should be done. Gathering some of the most creative minds of this generation, the Milanese outerwear brand put up the Genius Group Project, a collective of artistic collaborations. Each designer interpreted all of the label’s iconic codes and transformed them to haute couture looks, flirty cocktail pieces, and streetsmart items. Simone Rocha, for example, took the industrial outerwear classics of the label and transformed them into light and airy ladylike clothes. Her Moncler women were dainty and romantic, yet still covered up and warm for the winter, despite spending time in the garden. Similarly, Noir Kei Ninomiya’s take is just as feminine, but this time, the Moncler woman was in elegant cocktail frocks decorated with patent leather flowers and encrusted with sparkling pearls. The masculine aspect of this collaborative project came from Fragment Hiroshi Fujiwara, whose collection was all about graphic prints and patterns on schoolboy looks. His Moncler men were sporty yet sophisticated, and streetwear-ready but still luxurious. It seems that there’s an infinite amounts of ways one can get into the Moncler brand, and with such creatives by the brand’s side, they’ll all be worth all the money in the world.
