Reimagining a 1954 Classic for the Modern Fashionista
Moncler makes waves in the fashion realm, unveiling the “Re/Icons” initiative, a fresh take on their legendary Karakorum jacket. Originally introduced in 1954, the Karakorum jacket isn’t just a mere piece of clothing—it tells a story. Named after the mountain range in the Kashmir region of Asia and bearing its Italian spelling, the Karakorum jacket became iconic when, in 1954, Achille Compagnoni and Lino Lacedelli scaled K2’s peak wearing none other than this Moncler masterpiece.
Moncler’s Chairman and CEO, Remo Ruffini, speaks passionately about the “Re/Icons” venture: “It offers a golden chance to reinterpret, reimagine, and reintroduce some of our most timeless and iconic designs to a fresh wave of Moncler enthusiasts.” The Karakorum jacket, a hallmark of Moncler’s collection, deserves its grand reintroduction. Fans can snag the revamped Karakorum jackets—both men’s and women’s versions—at select Moncler boutiques and on their official website. Price tags hover between 1,650 euros and 2,000 US dollars.
