Moncler was created in 1952 by René Ramillon and André Vincent near the French Alpes. Owners of an enterprise that manufactured sleeping bags and tents for mountain climbing, the partners imagined the first clothing based on the use of goose down and later a complete clothing line to protect skiers against the cold. In 1968, the brand was named the official supplier of the French Alpine Ski Team and four years later the first iconic Moncler down jacket was born and quickly praised by ELLE magazine. Today, the brand is Italian owned and continues to surf on its success without fail: leader in chic clothing for extreme temperatures for children and adults. The brand now offers other products such as their Moncler down coats for children and babies. They also offer a summer kids collection with mid-season Moncler jackets, pants, sweatshirts, dresses and swimsuits!
