Moncler has announced its 2020 lineup for the Moncler Genius project, and it’s definitely one to eye. Showcasing capsule collections by different designers, the new team of collaborators includes designer Jonathan Anderson of JW Anderson, and luggage manufacturer Rimowa.
Anderson is slated to work on a gender-neutral clothing line that “offers a modern interpretation of masculinity and femininity through a cross-pollination of menswear and womenswear.”
“I really admire what Moncler has achieved with Genius and with the brand as a whole, how they articulate technology in a revolutionary way,” Anderson told WWD of his latest project. “It’s just incredible, and I’m really excited about it.”

As for Rimowa, Moncler has tapped the luggage brand to collaborate on a conceptual project called “Reflection,” designed to showcase “novel innovations in technology, connectivity and communication in the digital age,” and offer users the chance to communicate with the wider world.
Other Moncler Genius partners include Hiroshi Fujiwara of Fragment Design, Simone Rocha, and electric bike company Mate.Bike. The latter will work with Moncler to design an electrical bike for extreme mountainous and snowy terrains. All of the collaborations will be revealed during Milan Fashion Week on February 19, as part of the wider Moncler Genius 2020 showcase.
The Moncler Genius series, pioneered by the house’s CEO and creative director Remo Ruffini, debuted in 2018. It has since launched capsule collections created in partnership with other fashion brands and designers, such as Pierpaolo Piccioli and Craig Green.
