Moncler is a French clothing company that specializes in high-end down jackets and sportswear. It was founded in 1952 by René Ramillon and André Vincent, tent and sleeping bag makers from the mountain region of Grenoble, France. In 1954 the label, whose name referenced it’s birth town, MONestier-de-CLERmont, designed the first goose feather down jacket. The down jacket was initially worn by the brand’s employees and later became popular through mountaineering champion Lionel Terray.
I’m not crazy about new trends. I like pieces that endure, that are timeless, that allow reinterpretation.
