Moncler basically stands on three pillars. One is the Moncler Collection, where most of our business is. The second is Moncler Genius, and the third is Moncler Grenoble, which is more of our sports and ski collection.

So the whole collection was based around trying to create garments www.monclersoutlets.com that could be condensed into very small spaces." Green and his team presented paper mock - ups of the pieces to Moncler's team, showing how they might construct a garment with down pillows, "and how it could be folded through a series of hinges, and lips to suck the air out to reduce the volume of the down."

To end the day, the main event took us to Castello Sforzesco and its giant Piazza d'Armi. Here, the Moncler team had set up a large stage from which, that evening, Alicia Keys presented a mix of videos that summed up the entire MONDOGENIUS live streaming the event around the world. The stands were as crowded and trepidatious as before a basketball game, but the lights were soft and elegant as if suggesting an intimate and friendly atmosphere.
