What is Moncler Genius?
Moncler Genius is the brand’s latest venture into the fashion world. Displaying non conformity to the typical rules and barriers of the industry, Moncler have decided to take what can only be described as a ‘genius’ new approach to fashion and design. Learn all about the new sub-brand in our Moncler Genius Brand Guide below.
What is Moncler Genius?
Remo Ruffini conceived Moncler Genius as a hub of creativity in which a variety of exceptional designers can portray their creative individuality in unison. The company uses the classic Moncler down jacket as a blank canvas, to be used and molded into the artists vision, while also offering bold approaches to other items of clothing within the same collections. Ditching the bi annual collection release that is commonplace for fashion houses, Moncler’s Genius project instead opts for a monthly launch of products, creating a bond with the consumer through the artistic expression of talented designers.
What do Moncler Genius’ Numbers mean?
To visually aid the consumer with their understanding of Genius, Moncler presents their sub-brand as a building that is comprised of eight separate cells. Here each cell is numbered, numbers do not create a hierarchy but instead offer a different approach to fashion, a unique outlet of design.Each cell creates the beating heart of Moncler genius.
Each number possesses a different artistic expression, a different meaning and most importantly, a different uniquely talented designer spearheading their approach into a distinct creative outlook.
- 1 – is for pure essence
- 2 – is for pop trademark
- 3 – is for playful flair
- 4 – is for pragmatic femininity
- 5 – is for dress as habitat
- 6 – is for wearable geometry
