Moncler Genius presents third collaboration with Matthew Williams
Moncler’s new outerwear and accessories collection, labelled 6 Moncler 1017 Alyx 9SM, is a “meeting of light and shadow,” the third collaboration between the luxury down jacket label and US designer and entrepreneur Matthew Williams, co-founder of the 1017 ALYX 9SM label and, since June 2020, creative director of Givenchy’s men’s and women's collections.
“Evolving his utopian uniform for Moncler Genius, Matthew Williams takes the dual approach of blending innovative construction with eye-catching metalware, establishing a distinctive urban design language that is highly contemporary,” said Moncler in a press release.
The collection highlights Williams's technical savvy and sartorial pragmatism, and focuses on the tension between opposites, between mat and shine, natural and artificial, soft and firm, darkness and light. 6 Moncler 1017 Alyx 9SM features for example black, ultra-glossy laqué nylon for full-length and cropped down jackets, contrasting with mat white cotton, and chains threaded into the jackets’ quilting to juxtapose the lightness and softness of down feathers with the heft of metal.
Included in the collection, besides down jackets and full-length overcoats, leather trousers, lug-soled boots, soft handbags, metal bracelets and belts.
