8 Moncler Richard Quinn Collection
Richard Quinn‘s feisty proportions on how women should wear prints – boldly, glamorously and with a hint of kink – has made him one of London’s most exciting young talents in recent years. It also makes him one of the wildest names on the Rolodex of Moncler Genius – the multi-label rotating, drop-based initiative by the luxury skiwear specialist that’s changed how fashion houses approach collaborations.
The second instalment of 8 Moncler Richard Quinn – it drops on May 28 – ups the ante on what the British designer and luxury skiwear specialist can do together with the likes of embroidered couture gowns, svelte mini dresses, and high-heeled boots all in the latter’s innovative fabrics. Quinn, who first made a name for himself with his enthusiastic embrace of kitschy wallpaper prints, developed a total of 12 original prints for this tie-up with Moncler. Contrasting the wild abandon of the Technicolor motifs and grand couture silhouettes for the lookbook images was a sterile Space Age-y setting inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s sci-fi masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey. Here, the young visionaire tells us what working with an industry giant means for an up-and-comer like him – and the future of fashion.
The 8 Moncler Richard Quinn collection is available now on Marina Bay Sands’ newly-launched Shopping Concierge that offers complimentary island-wide delivery.
