Moncler Genius and Gentle Monster Tap Online Swipe Culture for Their Collaborative Range
Gentle Monster and Moncler Genius have joined forces to launch a collection of futuristic eyewear and outerwear designs.
Dubbed “Swipe,” the range is led by four contemporary eyewear silhouettes, including an oversized square shape, oval frames and a polygonal style. The designs, featuring 99.9% UV protection lenses, are offered in a variety of colorways, such as a translucent red option as well as a gray iteration with blue-tinted lenses. The pieces are highlighted with co-branding on the metal temples.
As for apparel, the duo has created technical tops, trousers, tees and sweatshirts. The contemporary theme is continued on the garments with a monochrome black theme, while Moncler’s iconic logo serves as contrast. Other items in the collab include hoods made out of recycled polyester, in addition to boots, pouches and bags made using recycled nylon.
In celebration of the partnership, Gentle Monster and Moncler have launched a pop-up space in the eyewear brand’s HAUS DOSAN flagship in Seoul. The collection is displayed in immersive installations that blend the physical and digital worlds together.
