These swanky Moncler x Valentino down jackets will ready you for their game-changing fall mashup
Hot to launch
Unless you've been living under a rock (a rock lacking in internet reception as it is devoid of fashionable neighbours) you would have heard all the buzz surrounding Moncler Genius back in February. Recap: the Italian label's clever new direction sees the induction of eight (possibly rotating) guest designers — namely Valentino's Pierpaolo Piccoli, Palm Angel's Francesco Ragazzi, Fragment's Hiroshi Fujiwara, Noir Kei Ninomiya's Kei Ninomiya, Simone Rocha, Craig Green, Sandro Mandrino and Karl Templer — each tasked to spearhead their own interpretation of the down jacket, and its natural extensions.
Beating his peers to the punch is Craig Green, having already released not one but two Moncler remixes in the last six months. In second place is Piccoli, whose firstborn Moncler x Valentino collection is scheduled to drop next. Their stars, the two down jackets seen above and below, were only just unveiled at the pre-fall presentation in New York City. Take a closer look here, before sprinting to any one of Valentino's 65 global stores or working your speedy fingers on the web come late August.
Moncler x Valentino will be available in Valentino boutiques worldwide and online from the end of August.
