MONCLER GENIUS 5 CRAIG GREEN
A longstanding purveyor of visionary pragmatism, Craig Green’s focus on how garments perform in different environments and situations, providing true forms of protection, has forged a signature lexicon of shapes, details and textures that have become a natural fit for Moncler’s adventurous spirit.
For his fifth Moncler Genius collection, the British designer experimented with the lighter side of functionality in its multiple forms. Hence the new offering is hinged on simple yet bold emergency graphics: the circle and square used in the nautical world are printed onto outerwear and T-shirts, which can be cut away and used as flags. Other motifs include a world map and the brand’s new, streamlined logo blown up to become completely abstract. The sustainable approach appears in the zero-waste intarsia jackets, in the eco ripstop fabric for light jackets and parkas, and in the organic cotton T-shirts.
Colorwise, earthy hues are brightened up by flashes of neon orange, sky blue, grass green and lemon yellow, plus blue and black, of course.
