Happy Virus, Cloudy, Malfi, Mr. TTT, Look Who and Snowy. No, these are not the names of the characters from an educational children's show. Conceived by artists Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III that go by the moniker FriendsWithYou, the creative duo have made it their mission to champion positive vibes by way of these uplifting little critters expressed in a multitude of forms.
The six stars of their imagination make appearances on paintings, playgrounds, installations, sculptures to name a few, and in collaboration with Moncler for FW16, on the French-Italian brand's iconic reversible down jackets. A neat way to brighten the dark of winter and bring cheer to the slopes, pop one on and instantly become the bearer of joy — all it takes is a glance at these hypercoloured conversational pieces for you to become the life of the party. Now who's ready for après ski?
Lensed by famed fashion photographer, Terry Richardson, The Moncler x FriendsWithYou FW16 collection is worn by designer Virgil Abloh, musician Miyavi, singer Mademoiselle Yulia and model Kozue Akimoto.
