Veronica Leoni sets out to create a conversation with the events taking place in the world around her for her latest collections. In the end, the outcome is a compilation that is at once relevant, intimate, and surprising. Leoni’s new Moncler 1952 collection strives to convey a sense of enthusiasm, brightness, and happiness via fashion. She honors Moncler by incorporating the brand’s vocabulary and codes into her design.
For the new collection, the textile mills of Como have brought back intricate designs from their history. Joy is elicited by the brilliance of luxurious jacquards, vibrant knitwear, and neutral-toned materials. The puffer jacket is the centerpiece of the collection. It gets a whimsical makeover when it’s paired with knitwear, producing a casual but stunning style.
A white puffer serves as a foundation for the more vibrant motifs in the collection. Bold flowers, stripes, and cravatteria designs grow increasingly prominent as the season progresses, adding a playful element to the aesthetic. Hooded parkas, skirts, slip dresses, and cardigans are just some of the other options. A strong and layered overall shape characterizes Leoni’s designs. When worn with a longuette skirt, a cropped puffer gives a whimsical but serious vibe, perfect for today’s fashion sensibilities.
The collection’s accessories include thick padded purses and platform creepers. To create an interesting visual contrast, a wide variety of patterns and stripes are applied to jacquard and quilted textiles. Leoni and Moncler’s 1952 collection show us that even in the midst of catastrophe, there is still hope and happiness to be found. Shop the full range here.
