The Moncler Genius Project is specifically presented to replace "seasonal partnerships with monthly drops from designers." For the August edition, the conceptual initiative taps into British Designer Craig Green.
The silhouettes from the latest release of the Moncler Genius Project are indicative of the fashion industry's move toward puffier and oversized apparel. However, Craig Green pushes this notion with dramatically increased volumes that almost completely engulf the body. Contrary to what one might think initially, the designer outerwear meets the winter-ready standards of Moncler and is intended to be worn. For the silhouettes, Craig Green uses "only matte nylon and cotton dawns." The garments are filled with down to generate warmth for the wearer and are, thus, extremely lightweight.
Without a doubt, the latest drop from the Moncler Genius Project tests the boundaries of aesthetic, function and disproportion.
