The name is an abbreviation of Montestier-de-Clermont, a village in the mountains near Grenoble. At first, Moncler made quilted sleeping bags, a single model of ski mask and tents with a telescopic structure and outer cover. The first padded jackets were designed to protect workers from the cold. They put the jackets over the work monkeys in this small mountain company.
The Moncler padded jacket or feather type, has become a classic, perfect for a casual outfit with the arrival of the cold. It is the result of combining artisan tradition with the most innovative technologies. An icon.
Moncler has boutiques in Milan, Aspen, St.Moritz, Paris, Cortina d’Ampezzo, Gstaad or Hong Kong, but also in exclusive outlets such as Santa Eulalia in Barcelona.
Among the milestones worthy of note are: in 1954 the Moncler jacket was present on the Italian expedition to the Karakorum, in 1955 in the French conquest of the Makalú and in 1968 becomes official supplier of the French team in the winter Olympic Games in Grenoble, event that causes a change in the logo, Mount Eguit is held by the rooster.
The company was launched in Monestier-de-Clermont by the ski manufacturer, René Ramillon, the sporting goods merchant André Vincent and the mountaineer Lionel Terray, and quickly won a series of patents for the improvement of the clothes against the cold, which were originally designed for the military in the 1940s.
Today, Moncler’s innovation is based on the use of higher quality materials, the selection of more compact pens with the quantities per square centimeter mathematically specified to maintain the same levels of heat and breathability, but also to make jackets between 20 and 30% lighter. “We are always looking for ways to make warmer but thinner winter jackets,” says Ruffini, “those worn in the 50’s were huge because they needed lots of feathers to fill them.”
In the last ten years, that search for the good, the best and the top has been completed with the immersion and without shame in the international fashion system. Campaigns with Bruce Weber, parades, collaborations with Giambattista Valli, Mykita, Pharrell Williams or Tom Browne, and armies of celebrities with Liv Tyler, Victoria Beckham, Madonna and Sarah Jessica Parker at the head and preceded by Brigitte Bardot, showing their collections.
