The latest from the heritage outerwear label and Matthew Williams, 6 Moncler 1017 ALYX 9SM, is an exploration of dualities, with classic outerwear reworked through a contemporary lens.
Matthew Williams’ 1017 ALYX 9SM is all about pushing the envelope of technical design. The label, despite being founded in 2015, has cemented its position as one of the key figures in contemporary fashion: a trailblazer, one that forgoes convention in favour of experimentation and technical design.
Although Moncler was founded well over half a century prior to 1017 ALYX 9SM, the heritage label shares that same passion for pushing the boundaries of garment innovation. The two labels’ Genius collection, titled 6 Moncler 1017 ALYX 9SM, shines a spotlight on that, bringing detail, materials and function to the forefront.
This season, the collection is centred around the exploration of dualities: black and white colour palettes, matt and shiny materials and soft versus hard detailing. Even the garments lean in on that duality — Moncler’s outerwear is cast through the prism of ALYX, resulting in pieces that strike the perfect balance between slope-focused outerwear and Williams’ city-centric aesthetic. Think down jackets with rollercoaster buckle detailing, outerwear with experimental cuts and pieces with understated, Williams-typical colours.
