After the co-lab for the bus customized by Rick Owens and Michelle Lamy , Moncler Genius arrives at Milan Fashion Week with a dynamic and experimental project. A creative hub where the designer collections were exhibited in 12 ad hoc installed environments. After the union of JW Anderson and the Genius team, the collections of Sergio Zambon and Veronica Leoni for 1952, Sandro Mandrino for Moncler Grenoble, Simone Rocha , Craig Green , Matthew Williams of 1017 ALYX 9SM, Fragment Hiroshi Fujiwara, Richard Quinn and the Poldo Dog Couture collection dedicated to dogs. JW Anderson debuts with a collection that revisits its iconic garments and stylistic elements that mix men's and women's clothing with a unique and modest interpretative cut. "I am fascinated by the technicality and essentiality of Moncler garments." The British designer said: "A duvet must fulfill a very specific function and it is an aspect that I have always kept in mind when designing this collection, reinterpreting it through my taste for the 'pure abstraction ".
Sandro Mandarino reflects on the practicality of the duvets for the Grenoble line by organizing a real performance that reinterprets "Walking on a Wall" by Trisha Brown from 1971. Overall, white duvets and bomber jackets that celebrate the roots of the French brand with a layered and functional look . Simone Rocha is certainly the most romantic. A cinema with a dramatic projection that contextualizes its rich collection of embroideries, applications and tulle: "The collection is inspired by Fellini, the dance and the fantasy of the clothes". Craig Green renews his research on the concept of transparency and protection, evolving his studies with the rip-stop only in nylon. "There is a scientific side of Moncler that I find very stimulating. I wanted to push simplicity to the extreme, using the padding process almost as if it were a print. The volumes are built around the body starting from a flat element, then moving from 2D to 3D. " Craig Green. An extremely exuberant vision that of Richard Quinn who winks at the space age aesthetic of the 60s. A repetitive catwalk with a haute couture version of Moncler full of embroidery and jewel details and contemporary ball bags. Once again the identity of Moncler Genius has become a unique and unrepeatable experience in the name of hic et nunc (here and now) celebrating the iconic pay-off at its best: “Moncler. One house, different voices ".
