Milan-based Moncler continues to impress with its Genius collaborations. Among the 2020 class, Richard Quinn‘s presentation was a highlight with the British design using the platform to bring his love for ’60s-inspired, flower power prints into full bloom. Styled by New York-based Karl Templer, the 32-piece collection ranged from show-stopping gowns to simple stunning outerwear pieces, catsuits and shift dresses.
Quinn’s presentation was part of Moncler’s third open-to-the-public Genius presentation, an effort whose other-worldly, artful design themes blend performances, electronic art displays and runway. Displayed in a warehouse as part of Milan Fashion Week, the event included eight fashion presentations.
Having also shown as part of Genius 2019, Quinn is part of a 2020 class that includes JW Anderson, Simone Rocha, Craig Green, Matthew Williams of 1017 ALYX 9SM and Fragment’s Hiroshi Fujiwara, along with ongoing contributions from Moncler 1952 designers Sergio Zambon and Veronica Leoni and Moncler Grenoble designer Sandro Mandrino.
The exhibit also included projects created by Poldo Dog Couture, Rimowa and Mate.bike.
Moncler’s Genius project was first launched in February 2018 with eight designers, tasked with re-imagining Moncler’s classic down silhouette. According to press, “Each project has the classic Moncler down jacket as the main playground, stands on its own, and all of them unanimously converging on the item.”
The Moncler Genius exhibit will open to the public on February 23, 2020 in a warehouse space located at Viale Molise 70 in Milan. Select items will be sold at retail throughout the year.
