Moncler has recruited a stellar lineup of guest designers to construct individual collections for their Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear presentation. Titled the "Genius Group" by Remo Ruffini himself, Pierpaolo Piccioli, 1952, Grenoble, Simone Rocha, Craig Green, Noir Kei Ninomiya, Fragment Hiroshi Fujiwara, and Palm Angels make up the cast, all adapting their personal aesthetics for Moncler. Each collection is cut from its own cloth, based on the varied creative perspectives of each designer. The lines stand apart, and stand on their own feet, as no presentation outweighs the other. The reasoning behind this is evident, no two are too similar that it can outshine another, all formulated with a different purpose.

The eight collections will be released one by one on a monthly basis, in line with Ruffini's attempt to change with the current buying patterns.

Pierpaolo Piccioli

For this collection, Pierpaolo Piccioli creates royalty-worthy assembles. Based on gown-like silhouettes, Piccioli brings his feminine-centric designs to the winter wear brand.

1952

Moncler relates to streetwear lovers in this presentation. Based on bright bursts of color and familiar silhouettes, this collection makes use of loud prints and a blending of textures.

Grenoble

Grenoble gears up for snow in this floral filled ensemble. With pieces aimed towards winter activity, the pattern clad collection aims at Moncler's status as the elite ski wear brand.

Simone Rocha

Simone delivers a gothic vibe for her Moncler take. Rocha stays in step with the excessive layering trend, creating movement and dimension with ruffled pleats.

Craig Green

Green brings his avant-garde attitude to Moncler. The large profiles of the collection bring an unexpected element to the group.

Noir Kei Ninomiya

Exaggerated forms have found a home in this collection. Kei Ninomiya utilizes his Comme des Garcon teachings to transform classic silhouettes into artwork.

Fragment Hiroshi Fujiwara

Fujiwara takes a more traditional approach to the menswear line, sprinkling it with an outdoorsman touch.

Palm Angels

Palm Angels exercise a similar approach to Alexander Wang's latest line, incorporating major matrix vibes. With red and black being the operative tone, the intense collection offers a more everyday appeal than its abstract counterparts.
