Moncler was founded at Monestier-de-Clermont, Grenoble, France, in 1952 and is currently headquartered in Italy. Over the years the brand has combined style with constant technological research assisted by experts in activities linked to the world of the mountain. The Moncler outerwear collections marry the extreme demands of nature with those of city life. In 2003 Remo Ruffini took over the company, of which he is currently Chairman and CEO. Moncler manufactures and directly distributes the clothing and accessories collections under the brand Moncler through its boutiques and in exclusive international department stores and multi-brand outlets.
Moncler jackets have become a truly elegant wardrobe element from a brand that has mastered a truly luxurious look. A unique background in lavish design that gracefully displays Moncler’s eclectic French roots gives their entire range a sleek, well-appointed and hugely desirable edge. Originally founded in 1952 in Monastier de Clermont, near Grenoble, Moncler was born amongst the very elements that it seeks to protect its wearers against. Unrivalled in repute, Moncler coats have a diverse experience in fighting the cold, with down filled variations being designed in the past to serve everyone from mountain peak explorers to alpine skiers. It was the latter that paved the way for Moncler to make the journey down from the mountainside and onto the high streets, as their famed outerwear and Moncler knitwear began to take the high end European skiing scene by storm; dominating slope side style in resorts such as Courchevel 1850 and Saint Moritz.
This high end appeal perfectly transmitted to the glamour of premium outerwear, as Moncler began moving their standing for technical excellence into a reputation for producing some of the finest fashionable jackets available. From their exploits with high quality duck down to durable outers, Moncler jackets were made instantly recognizable by their mountain peak badge- an icon that has now become a beacon for some of the most anticipated and coveted designs on the international premium designer scene. Seeking to diversify their product offering, Moncler have recently seen more expansion in their line of off-piste apparel, creating lightweight jackets, sweatshirts and t-shirts in the finest materials, and infusing them with a modern street-inflected twist. Moncler bags and luggage are also among the finest in the world, giving a taste of the jet-set lifestyle that the brand was founded upon while utilising their distinctive visual language to create something quintessentially Moncler.
