Founded in 1952 in Monestier-de-Clermont, Grenoble, France, Moncler is now located in Italy. Over the course of the years the brand has merged style with ongoing technological research, which harnesses the knowledge of mountaineering experts. Moncler collections combine extreme needs with day-to-day city life. In 2003, Remo Ruffini took over the company of which he is now Chairman. Moncler directly produces and distributes its own clothing and accessories collections through its direct boutiques and the world’s most exclusive department and multibrand stores.
