GREG LAUREN & MONCLER PRESENT COLLIDE
Moncler has teamed up with artist and designer Greg Lauren, who lent his signature “destruction and reconstruction” creative touch to the brand’s staple puffer jackets. Out for fall, the exclusive collection is called Collide.
Each striking one-of-a-kind garment fully displays the artist’s hand with its ability to mix-and-match different fabrics, including nylon, denim and sturdy worn-out cottons, complete with frayed hems and exposed stitching. The overall raw-edged and off-kilter effect comes in bright red, electric blue and military green, reflecting Lauren’s signature use of repurposed fabrics.
The nephew of Ralph Lauren, Lauren is a painter and sculptor, who studied art at Princeton and later specialized in fashion design.
Other high-profile Moncler tie-ups include collaborations with Comme des Garçons, Sacai, Visvim, Pharrell Williams, Mary Katrantzou, Erdem and Rolling Stones.
