The new guy in the Moncler Genius line up. For Autumn Winter 20, JW Anderson was one of many designers invited to give their unique take on Moncler. Giving a voice to creativity and personal expression, the highly popular 1 Moncler JW Anderson collection is now available to purchase, hold dear and call your very own.
Pure and architectural in design. For his Moncler Genius Autumn Winter 20 collection, Anderson presented a selection of his most iconic and signature designs. Revisiting archival JW Anderson items such as the Riviera hat and ruffled shorts, interpreting them in duvet to create a new take on known shapes with a Moncler edge.
All styles in the collection are designed to be worn indifferently by men and women, heroing a playful and fun spirit. Padded zip-up blousons, padded scarves, wide-brim hats and shorts are key styles that are all about bright colour and shape – sculptural motifs such as embossed dots and projecting spikes add to the visually enticing three-dimensionality.
Nods to the British countryside that are synonymous with Anderson’s aesthetic are mixed with notions of city dressing. We see duck prints feature on long sleeveless duvets, trench coats and double faced coats, chunky knitwear with patch pockets, packable boots and padded bags with padded chain detailing.
A palette of red, light blue, yellow, pink, black and navy blue are displayed in monochromatic blocks or in contrasting ways and textures such as a matte finish played off with shiny. The technicality of Moncler gets an abstract Anderson twist.
To celebrate the debut of the collection, Moncler and JW Anderson present an Exhibition in a Box - 500 limited-edition curated archive cases conceived to spark creativity and individual expression. Jonathan Anderson thought of a new way to bring art to viewers in a bid to replicate the energy of his presentation for Moncler Genius back in February.
Anderson also collaborated with photographer Tyler Mitchell on the micro-showcase which contains imagery the duo shot of the collection in the English countryside this summer. Presented in an archive box, it contains a padded folder, prints and instruction cards on how to hang the exhibition in your home. A unique curated perspective for your own personal space.
