The origins of the name lie in its very roots: Moncler is, in fact, an abbreviation of Monestier-de-Clermont, a mountain village near Grenoble. Moncler was founded at Monestier-de-Clermont, Grenoble, France, in 1952 and is currently headquartered in Italy. Over the years the brand has combined style with constant technological research assisted by experts in activities linked to the world of the mountain. The Moncler outerwear collections marry the extreme demands of nature with those of city life. In 2003 Remo Ruffini took over the company, of which he is currently Chairman and CEO. As a result, Moncler offers new interpretations of the concept of the quilted jacket, which has now become an integral part of the world of luxury, whilst the brand's confines have now expanded to embrace the summer season, too. And it is the very intuition of ever-changing combinations of technology and nature, mountain and city, functionality and aesthetics that make Moncler the quilted jacket par excellence. A transversal icon which expresses authentic and individual elegance that is beyond fashion.
