The Karakorum jacket was created in 1954 by Moncler to protect Italian explorers on the first expedition to reach the peak of K2. "I think of a Moncler jacket in a similar way, something that has a solid looking form but actually is as light as air." Two models in particular, the "Glenard" (a bulbous double - hooded white cotton jacket) and the "Halibut" (an oily black matte nylon jacket with vertical channel quilting) call to mind the envelope - pushing shapes of the show pieces but wouldn't look too out of place on your daily commute.
Out this week, Craig Green's latest collection in collaboration with Moncler's Genius project was made a little differently. He usually commutes to Milan monthly; this time he was restricted to Moncler Outlet only one visit.
Entering the installation, one found helmets, Texan boots, blankets, magazines - all a paraphernalia of authentic vintage pieces found New Moncler and chosen in collaboration with Mask, a Santa Fe vintage shop, while, on the wall, there was a mix of Moncler garments hung together with vintage and collectible pieces. The idea for the format came from Palm Angels designer Francesco Ragazzi, as a tribute to American fashion and history, of which he is a lover and great enthusiast.
Growing up in a Moncler Jackets closed - minded small town where every guy dressed the same, wearing anything different was a risk that only paid off once a month when arriving in the city. Put on that ill - fitted Moncler tee, take an hour - long bus trip out of town, and I've come home.
