The brands that team up with Italian powerhouse Moncler for its Genius project rarely produce one-hit wonders and usually stick around for follow-up collections. Just cue the likes of Simone Rocha, Fragment and 1017 ALYX 9SM.
Now, the latest to join this club of hall-of-famers is JW Anderson, who is launching his sophomore collection with Moncler Genius on March 1. The outing is a follow-up to the Northern Irish-born Anderson’s first Moncler tie-up last year.
Playful and fluid wardrobe pieces dot the second collection by JW Anderson for Moncler.
Having made a name for its gender-bending and genre-defying silhouettes, JW Anderson will incorporate the same unisex appeal to the collection as he did before. At the crux of the collection, you’ll find Moncler’s signature utilitarian nylon and JW Anderson’s romantic appeal.
With the aim of portraying the story of nomadic travellers on a voyage, the collection is more playful and adventurous, yet still very wearable. From a quilted long coat to faded hues of sunsets on T-shirt dresses, here’s a first look at what’s up for grabs.
