If you’re kicking about in the North East or having a browse online, then you know that Aphrodite is the place to go if you want to grab yourself a bit of Moncler. After all, we’ve stocked the brand for years, and with each and every season hundreds of quality pieces find themselves on our shop floor, before being picked up by you lovely lot of course. Because of this, our staff have become accustomed to the quality of the brand’s offerings, and have had a chance to truly appreciate the intricate design and outstanding functionality of many of the greatest Moncler jackets year after year.
So in honour of Moncler’s 70th anniversary (and as little excuse to show off our all time favourite pieces) we’ve put together an Aphrodite x Moncler Staff Picks.
Moncler – ‘The Original’ Down Jacket
Kenzie Wooton – Online Editor
“For me, its important to look at the roots of the brands that we all know and love. What Reme Ruffini has done for Moncler, since he bought the brand, is incredible. He’s propelled a struggling ski-wear brand into a world leading luxury fashion company, all while staying true to the brands roots. Thats it, that’s the reason I love Moncler. So as i’m asked to choose my favourite Moncler Jacket, I simply have to look to the original. The ‘duvet’ style puffer jacket, the first of its kind… An icon.”
Moncler – Zipped Padded Cardigan
Andy Mcardle – Assistant Store Manager
Moncler for Lionel Terray – Lambert Jacket
Stewart Buck – Stock Control & Replenishment Executive
“K2 is an iconic mountain range that can really push a climber to their limits, and attempting the climb without properly made gear can be fatal. When a team of climbers set out to summit K2 in 1954, Moncler and Lionel Terray worked together to push the perceived limits of fabric and technological innovation. 60 years later a team set out to replicate the climb, leading to Moncler creating the stunning Lambert Jacket. This is truly one of the greatest Moncler jackets. It’s simple, it’s stylish, it’s functional and I love it.”
Moncler – Maya Jacket
Chris Blake – Assistant E-Commerce Manager
“The quintessential ski jacket: hooded, perfectly puffed up, and glossy as the slopes of Chamonix. A cornerstone of contemporary fashion that traverses both sportswear and street style, the Maya is the ace up the sleeve that epitomises the image and spirit of Moncler. Despite receiving celebrity endorsements, the Maya silhouette transcends fleeting trends; its essence is rooted in the heritage of a brand that is every bit as relevant today as it was upon its inception 70 years ago.”
Moncler Grenoble – Montgetech Jacket
Jorge Maddison – Senior Store Assistant / Visual coordinator
“I picked this as my favourite as I love the weight of the jacket, and its ideal for weather transitions. If you’re dealing with snow or rain you can always rely on the Montgetech. It’s a stunning silhouette with subtle branding which in my eyes only helps to elevate the piece; after all, less is more. “
