This week saw the release of the latest installation in the Moncler Genius collection, “5 Moncler Craig Green.” For this collaboration, the London-based designer Craig Green lent his expressive, innovative style to create a suite of clothing crafted with the outdoors in mind. Through designs focused on the more temperate seasons, our evolving relationship with nature after the last year—and the transformative, renewing qualities its elements can have—was considered.
Garments suggesting amphibious or aqueous qualities are reflected through new monogram expressions utilizing thick, coiling lines and sloping shapes reminiscent of the movement of a frog or platypus. Giving off the impression that the designs were made for great adventures, looks imagined in a mixture of neutral hues and brighter tones (like tangerine, electric blue, and yellow) have been captured in front of a series of simple, natural settings like the beach at dusk and rolling, grassy terrain.
Transcending typical silhouettes, the styles have been completed with the inclusion of sculptural accessories that remind us of rafts, floats, or parasail equipment. Less conspicuous designs like nylon windbreakers and durable cotton chinos and jackets have been paired with the sporty constructions—seen on a monochrome look in a pale stone hue with a tented sail attached by a structural hoop. The collection also features pieces like sneakers, shirt jackets, long parkas, and monogrammed bags.
