Matthew Williams, founder and creative director of the ready-to-wear and accessories brand 1017 ALYX 9SM, is the latest designer to join the Moncler Genius project, which has now become a world tour of great launches and special events. For his project in collaboration with Moncler, 6 MONCLER 1017 ALYX 9SM, the Chicago designer has conceived a collection with a metropolitan, modern and practical attitude.
The garments range from down jackets to padded parkas and ultra-lightweight anoraks to sleeveless jackets and leather coats, whose color range is based on black, grey, white with peaks of red and orange.
All items also feature new elements for Moncler, striking accessories such as chain belts with carabiners, backpacks with a waistcoat or built-in hat and neoprene boots with rubber soles.
The idea behind the entire collection is to merge the DNA of the two brands, also taking into account a theme very dear to Williams, that of eco-sustainability.
The shirts and leggings are in fact made of Econyl®, special nylon derived from waste materials such as plastic recovered from the oceans.
