Moncler is a luxury clothing company of French origin and founded in 1952 by the French fashion entrepreneur René Ramillon. Moncler manufactures and is known for its iconic high quality down jackets and sportswear including ski wear. In 1968 it was the official supplier of the French national team during the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble, France. During this period it adopted the French cockerel as its company logo.
Celebrities, royalty, designers and professional skiers are all clients of the brand which celebrates its 60th birthday year of success this year.
The history of Moncler began in 1952. The mountain equipment enthusiast, René Ramillon, designed a special jacket to protect his employees from the cold temperatures. René’s friend, Lionel Terray the world famous explorer, convinced him to design a collection of outerwear jackets for extreme mountain climbing. This led to the design of a product offering various styles and colours that has since become a classic and luxurious mountain fashion item. In 1954 Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni became the first to conquer the second highest mountain in the world, K2 and they were equipped with specially made jackets by Moncler.
Over the course of its 60 year history, this famous French jacket has been constantly improved and updated to cater for athletes, explorers and ski fashion. With stores all over the world Moncler provides superb and popular ski and snow wear.
Bonne anniversaire to Moncler!
