The Moncler brand was founded sixty years ago, from the abbreviation of Monestier de Clermont, a village in the mountains near Grenoble in France. Here, in 1952, Rene Ramillon and Andre Vincent founded the Company, initially characterized by a vocation for the sports clothing for the mountain.
The first brand Moncler down jacket is made in 1954 and is now valued for the high technical standards. In the same year, in fact, Moncler provides technical equipment to the Italian expedition to K2 in 1955 on the French expedition in 1968 and Makalù Moncler becomes the official supplier of the French team Alpine skiing at the Winter Olympics in Grenoble.
Since the 80s the brand Moncler garments spread, to become a real fashion phenomenon among younger consumers.
