MONCLER’S NEW CAPSULE: Moncler has partnered with outdoorsy Japanese fashion brand White Mountaineering for a special men’s capsule collection within its fall offering. Dubbed Moncler W, the capsule will make its debut May 24 at Tokyo’s National Olympic Stadium — home to the 1964 Summer Olympics and many of the country’s national soccer matches — and it will hit Moncler boutiques and select multibrand stores in August.
White Mountaineering is a men’s wear brand founded by Yosuke Aizawa known for combining functionality and technical materials with cool design. In his collaboration with Moncler, Aizawa played extensively with shades of gray, green and khaki, jacquard prints and red accents.
