Following their Billionaire Boys Club collaboration last year, Moncler return with a city-ready collection made for adventure and primed for the outdoors.
Pharrell Williams has been a member of the Moncler family since 2009 and this new collab further cements their relationship, and is powered by the Moncler Genius platform for co-creation.
Preparing us for the winter months, the collection revolves around the idea of glamping: family camping, but with an emphasis on refinement, craftsmanship and expertise. The clothes are meant for outdoor experiences and metropolitan adventures alike. The fluidity of natural forms versus the geometry of architecture influences the overall aesthetic: down padding has a curvilinear expression on one jacket, or pyramid points on another. The vest is a central piece, interpreted in three-dimensional diamond quilting and meant to be layered.
Transformability is key: zippers allow long trousers to turn into shorts; a duvet blanket doubles as a cape; arms zip off a jacket to transform into a utilitarian fisherman’s vest. The functionality of the garments – removable pockets, attachable keyring chains – is highlighted as a stylistic statement. The palette of slate gray and moss green; lichen and cloud further emphasise the bringing together of town and country in a fresh new harmony.
The Moncler x Pharrell Williams collection will be available to shop in select Moncler boutiques and on Moncler’s website on September 22nd.
