Moncler Commemorates 70th Anniversary With Magnificent Performance In Milan

The takeover of Milan's iconic Piazza del Duomo by Moncler on Saturday night was epic. With the momentous and spectacular occasion celebrating the brand's 70th anniversary, a 70-day campaign of global celebrations was initiated.

Prima ballerina of Teatro alla Scala di Milano Virna Toppi inaugurated the show. It then transitioned from live orchestral to electronic music, performed by DJ Lorenzo Senni. The massive 1,952 member cast, dressed in white Moncler Maya 70 jackets to represent the company's founding year, created a final spectacle that was blanketed in confetti.

The event was open to the public, who flocked to the square despite the rain. The performers sang and danced in the plaza as part of a very graphic and physical execution that explored the power of repetition. Chairman and chief executive officer Remo Ruffini said: “There was a wave of emotion as we lived this experience together … that moment was shared across the world through digital channels.” He went on to say, “Last night in Piazza del Duomo, I witnessed the perfect portrait of the future of Moncler. Tradition and innovation, key cornerstones of the brand, were united by the iconic Maya jacket — a design that keeps evolving in style and materials, thus, always remaining contemporary.”

Friends of the company, such as Hiroshi Fujiwara, Anne Hathaway, Elsa Hosk, Minhyun Hwang, Carmen Jordá, Maria Sharapova, Pharrell Williams, Shailene Woodley, and Na Ying, to mention a few, joined Ruffini in the square.

Except for a platinum version, the Maya jacket has been modified in a limited edition with 13 unique hues and is made of Moncler's brand-new, airy, washed, and lacquered nylon. With a larger hood and a boxier fit, the silhouette allows for even more mobility, and poppers are used in place of the front zip. The left sleeve pocket features the "Extraordinary Forever anniversary" badge, which is twinned with the mountain insignia commemorating the 70th anniversary by an infinity loop.

Ruffini has asked seven designers to revisit the Moncler Maya jacket, to be launched on a weekly basis from Oct. 15. They are Francesco Ragazzi of Palm Angels; Thom Browne; Fujiwara of Frgmt; Rick Owens; Giambattista Valli; Pierpaolo Piccioli, and Pharrell Williams.

Furthermore, Moncler is introducing its "Extraordinary Forever" campaign this month.
