An extraordinary mix of fluid rhythms and musicality of ska and funky echoes represented through the eyes of director Spike Lee, in a short film entitled "Brave", that comes from the lead song “Brave Suffering Beautiful”, from the off-Broadway musical “Total Bent”. This short film brings to life Moncler’s emblematic tribute to the multi- faceted eclectic beauty and life force of New York with its unique power to attract, inspire and change. "I deeply believe that New York City is the greatest city on God’s earth. I just wanted to be a storyteller. And I decided to film on a sweltering muggy August day, probably the hottest day of the year." (Spike Lee)
The opening of Moncler’s first American flagship store in the heart of New York City, is celebrated with an homage to the Big Apple. This tribute is expressed through a Special Collection designed by Thom Browne for the occasion and consisting of 28 iconic duvet jackets having the American flag as a common theme.
The individual jackets, all the same menswear model but different in details from each other, collectively create a mosaic installation entitled “USA Flag“, 2016 by Thom Browne on one wall of the New York City Madison flagship store. The jackets are sold for charity exclusively on this website benefitting Robin Hood, NewYork’s largest poverty-fighting organization.
The entire Moncler Special Collection designed by Thom Browne, features additional jackets, cashmere sweaters and other special items, exclusively available at the Madison Avenue boutique.
