Richard Quinn looked to the Swinging Sixties for the 8 Moncler Richard Quinn, his second collaboration with the outerwear brand. The collection includes a 32-piece collection replete with colorful florals, rainbow and zebra patterns, and and bejeweled and feathered embellishments. In addition to trapeze-style dresses and elegant pea coats that Jackie Kennedy might have worn, the lineup features a handful of impressive couture gowns with full opera skirts and Moncler’s signature quilting.

Materials include nylon laqué, which Quinn calls “a kind of like shine-through nylon,” faux fur, ostrich feathers, duchesse, and nylon twill. “I come from a textile background,” Quinn says, “so I’ve always loved working with different materials. What’s amazing about Moncler is that you can achieve such big volumes but the gowns and the jackets themselves are fairly light. It’s like taking their traditional house fabrics and then turning them into different things. Breathing new life to them.”

The 8 Moncler Richard Quinn capsule is part of the Moncler Genius project, now in its third edition. In addition to Quinn, the brand has tapped everyone from Simone Rocha and Craig Green to JW Anderson and Valentino‘s Pierpaolo Piccioli.

“It’s a nice fresh and new way of working,” Quinn says. “No idea is too big—[Moncler] wants to push the idea as big as it can go. And what’s best is they’re not afraid to do the really wild pieces.”
