Brand Focus: Moncler Grenoble
Posted on 23 January 2019
Making its debut at New York Fashion Week in 2010, Moncler Grenoble has earnt its permanent status within the expanded Moncler universe. Grenoble pays homage to Moncler’s winter sports heritage by offering ski-focused collections with an uncompromising appreciation for quality, detail and perhaps most importantly, performance.
Moncler’s specialist line is committed to going above and beyond the more typical conventions that are commonplace in winterwear apparel, presenting a range of garments that are admittedly designed with the ski slopes in mind, but are primed and ready to take on so much more. It’s Moncler’s unyielding commitment to craft and appreciation for fine detail that denotes Grenoble’s perceived status alongside some of the world’s most premium designers.
The Rolex Sea-Dweller dive watch is waterproof up to a staggering 4,000 feet and the Bugatti Chiron can reach speeds of up to 261 mph. Even though divers can only reach a depth of 2,000 feet (even with the aid of very specialist equipment), and the Chiron can be driven at its top speed at only a handful of locations worldwide, the borderline insane commitment to performance shown by both manufacturers is awe-inspiring and more than justifies their premium status.
Moncler Grenoble emulates the painstaking endeavours of the Rolex and Bugattis of the luxury world. Populated by thick down jackets and insulative fleeces, our Moncler Grenoble showcase is tailor-made for the ski slopes and the world far beyond them...
A clear favourite with Moncler enthusiasts, the Hintertux jacket is the first to make our list. The red nylon outer shell immediately catches the eye, guaranteeing that it will make a statement out on the slopes. Welcome features such as its windproof wrist gaiters are certain to keep you comfortable in the potentially harsh conditions. It features the iconic MonDuck logo on the left sleeve, however, in the Grenoble variant. In also boasts zip pockets on the sides and sleeve, making it perfect for storing all your valuables, and ensuring your peace of mind.
The Bessans jacket in black could be for you if you are looking for a more subtle offering. Similarly to the Hintertux, it is extremely wind resistant (featuring GORE® WINDSTOPPER® nylon fabric) and so shares similar advantages in terms of the protection it provides against the cold. The design differs slightly with down panels on the back and inner sleeves of the garment, presenting an alternative aesthetic that some may find preferable.
Another great alternative to the Bessans and Hintertux is the Lagorai jacket. This jacket features a stretch-nylon shell, which optimises its manoeuvrability and ensures that your skiing experience is just that little bit more satisfying. The Lagorai’s flexible fabric composition also allows room for the garment to breathe - an absolutely essential quality for when you’re really putting in work out on the slopes.
The Grenoble line aims not to throw all of its eggs in one basket, however. Offering something slightly different to the feature-heavy winter coats of our AW18 showcase, this dark blue logo hoodie is a decidedly more casual affair. With its sleek, unobtrusive design, it is perhaps more suited to leisurely strolls around the ski resort. But this is not to suggest that this garment is in any way lacking in star power. Specialist features such as its down-padded collar give this hoodie a unique look without compromising its weather-resistant quality. The Grenoble MonDuck logo takes pride of place on the front of the garment and gives the hoodie a sportier feel.
This is just a taste of what our Moncler Grenoble showcase has to offer. The specialist features of each individual piece lend a unique touch to an uncompromising range of specialist winterwear. Moncler Grenoble is the perfect brand to accompany you on a skiing holiday this winter with all of its features and stylistic touches coming together to make the perfect luxury ski-wear assortment.
