Veronica Leoni approaches design pragmatically and thoughtfully. Her medium is spontaneity, and her signature is soulful precision, evident in the seamlessly crafted new collection from Moncler based around her dualistic soul.
Despite sticking to Moncler‘s core values, Leoni has turned her vocabulary towards new directions, conveying a sense of effortless femininity and pragmatism, style and functionality, boldness, and spontaneity.
A cinched waist, either vigorously elasticized or tied with a belt, followed by a full skirt, symbolizes the new spirit of femininity, combining the dynamism and contrasts of today with the femininity of the fifties. Layered and personal, the look is non-formulaic and open to individual interpretation. From a cropped to a long puffer, from metallic to matt, even a blanket version that hints at the cozy domesticity of a bed cover, puffers come in a variety of lengths and textures. Even the pajama speaks of domestic contentment and eccentricity.
As a foundation of the collection, knitwear possesses the element of both ease and physicality: lurex jumpers matched with matching skirts, ski-inspired second skins with side snaps, merino extra fine underwear, and felted dresses. (The Muppets’ Kermit and Fozzy are also featured, prominently on two designs).
The amalgamation of textures is another Leoni signature: A classic palette of black and neutrals is lit by shots of gold and silver and warmed up with notes of orange and rust whilst elsewhere a smattering of feathers adorns hats and duvet scarves, as well as framed lady bags and towering platform heels.
Keeping in line with Moncler‘s commitment to sustainability and Leoni’s focus on creating clothing consciously, the collection includes pieces that are made from sustainable materials. The 2 Moncler 1952 Woman collection includes certain jackets, dresses, pants, and gilets made from materials with lower environmental impact than conventional ones, such as fabrics made from recycled nylon, recycled polyester, and organic cotton, and buttons and zips made of recycled brass and recycled metal.
