ARCTIC FASHION: Moncler has partnered with Italian explorer Michele Pontrandolfo for the world’s first lone exploration of the South Pole.

Having 14 polar expeditions under his belt, including a sole exploration of the geomagnetic North Pole in 2012, Pontrandolfo will set off on his journey this month and is scheduled to arrive in January.

With about 2,485 miles of ice and snow to cover and altitude differences ranging from zero to about 12,467 feet, the brand is providing him with functional ice gray garments, inspired by the Moncler Grenoble winter 2015-16 collection, to tackle the conditions.

“With Moncler there was an immediate understanding and a partnership that has been perfect from every standpoint of this expedition, whether technological, organizational or support-oriented,” said Pontrandolfo.
