Now into its third edition, Moncler Genius was inaugurated as an “open concept that is driven by experimentation and crosses the lines of conventions.” The point underscoring this initiative is reinvention, and the brand hopes to “decode the customers’ behaviours, expectations and emotional connections” via partnerships with different designers across various categories.
This year, there are 12 different installations with12 different concepts from 12 different visions to build up the Moncler Genius message of “One House, Different Voices.” Besides new inductees like JW Anderson, Moncler Genius also brought into its fold Rimowa and Mate.Bike. But that’s for later.

This year, Craig Green, a London-based designer who pushes practicality to an abstract edge, chooses to work solely with one material — the micro rip-stop nylon, a super-lightweight yet sturdy fabrication. One of the main highlights of this collection revolves around the concept of “building volumes around the body from flat items, from 2D flat items into 3D forms,” where Green made the down filling visible, showing the world the white pouches of feathers in the clothes.
Elsewhere, a series of graphic black and white garments that bring to mind a flattened cardboard box, except that they’re all padded.
The full collection is available now.
