EXCLUSIVE: 6 MONCLER NOIR KEI NINOMIYA
Black, of course. For drop n. 2 of the Moncler Genius project, Kei Ninomiya, the Japanese designer whose Noir Kei Ninomiya is under the Comme des Garçons umbrella, stuck to his signature monochromatic palette of black. All the better to set off his hallmarkintricacy and ability to experiment, this time applied to duvet. With this new undertaking, Ninomiya pushed into new grounds, exploring the idea of wearable geometry and 3-D effects, from both a technical and aesthetic standpoint. Through dexterity, painstaking workmanship and fabric manipulation, each piece marries a punkish streak with a romantic vein. Intarsia, quilting, ruffles, and applications add a decorative touch and a graphic movement that define a crop of striking, standout and functional items.
The brainchild of CEO Remo Ruffini, Moncler Genius is an explosion of game-changing creativity that defines the future through the work of eight designers who add an authentic, imaginative and unique touch to the brand’s signature down jacket.
