The iconic magazine THE FACE in collaboration with Moncler presented Future Academy, a program that provided paid opportunities and open resources for young people who want to get into the creative industries. The Future Moncler Jacket Academy Class of 2021 consisted of a group of 52 creatives from around the UK with access to free online learning resources and virtual mentorship from THE FACE and its network of creatives. Among the successful creators, two - Sulay and Cassandra - collaborated directly with Moncler on a special project.
I remember being 14 and washing dirty dishes for two months at my first job to save up enough money to buy an on - sale Moncler T - shirt, because my best friend owned a few of the brand's puffers and I saw how people approved of him. My first luxury purchase was a size too small, had an Olympic rings symbol embroidered on its front and a branded red - white - and - blue tag (Thom Browne x Moncler era ) sticking out of my neck that small - town Dutch folk just couldn't comprehend.
I was around 16 the first time I picked up a camera. I worked with a portrait photographer in a small town in Australia before I moved to Melbourne, and then eventually Sydney where I started in fashion photography.
The pairing was, for all parties, intuitive: "The idea of protection and functionality are at the heart of what I think Moncler is, whilst also being something that I have always explored in my own work," Green tells GQ.
It's "anchor's away" for Moncler Gamme Bleu Spring 2013 and under Thom Browne's creative direction we imagine any nautical notion is fair game. Fall 2012's ode to Formula One racing, complete with puffer - paneled bodysuits and racing stripe accents, made sense for the season taking cues from protective driving gear to keep Gamme Bleu guys warm in the winter months. This time around we imagine the designer will look to slick regatta racing attire for his seafaring adventure, but then again it is Browne so we'll just wait and see what tricks he has up his abbreviated sleeve.
