Recently, Moncler reported that it would never again be demonstrating its two runway accumulations—Moncler Grenoble and Moncler Gamme Bleu—in the process separating ties with Gamme Bleu’s creator (and contracted suit god) Thom Browne. In an announcement, Moncler’s CEO Remo Ruffini clarified, “The gathering must shift and open up towards various skylines.” And right now, opening up towards various skylines implies creating another joint effort with NYC’s most collab-upbeat streetwear name: Ronnie Fieg’s Kith.
Collaboration connoisseur Ronnie Fieg continues his reign with the unveil of KITH‘s latest joint effort, this time with Moncler. Following a brief teaser on social media, the collaboration is set to launch in two deliveries: the first will be comprised of pieces geared to face-off against harsh winter weather, while the second drop includes a premium fleece line, T-shirts, and a three-way collaboration alongside ASICS and its GEL-Lyte III sneaker.
The 36-piece offering centers around Moncler’s signature Rochebrune Jacket, then complemented by KITH design items such as the Lachat Down Hoodie. The color palette hosts a mix of red, white, and blue coloring as a nod to each brand’s home turf of France and USA.
Set to be released over the span of two weeks, the first delivery is slated for December 2, and the second on December 9. The KITH x Moncler Winter 2017 collection will be made available at all KITH shops, KITH.com, Moncler.com, and select Moncler flagships and resort destinations around the globe. Retail prices range from $160 to $1,760 USD.

The accumulation initially appeared as a component of Kith’s huge 100+ look runway appear in September, which saw any semblance of Scottie Pippen and LeBron James hit the catwalk, and included coordinated efforts with Nike, Champion, Adidas, Off-White, and obviously Moncler. From what we could tell at that point, Kith x Moncler was loaded with new goes up against Moncler’s mark puffy coats. Be that as it may, notwithstanding the works of art, the full scope of apparatus comprises of logo-overwhelming sweaters, T-shirts, hoodies, caps, and even footwear, as a climbing boot and a tennis shoe (itself the uncommon triple collab: a winterized take on Fieg’s unequaled most loved model, the Asics Gel Lyte 3).
The joint effort doesn’t appear glaringly evident at first look. Moncler has been grasped by the streetwear group over the previous decade, however generally introduces itself as an European extravagance mark in the most genuine, multi-comma sense: its items are evaluated far higher than a large portion of what Kith offers. In any case, for Kith organizer Ronnie Fieg, that is precisely what made the joint effort attractive. “It is the most best level outerwear mark when it comes down to materials, development, and style. When you consider most zenith frosty climate item, Moncler sits over the rest,” Fieg says. What’s more, Fieg’s inclination for making monstrous buildup around discharges may bode well for a brand searching for its best course of action.
