« This anniversary is an important opportunity to celebrate how far we’ve come, and to look to the future with an eye toward what we’ve learned and the dreams that drive us. » – Remo Ruffini, Chairman and CEO of Moncler S.p.A.
« From day one, Moncler has never been conventional or ordinary. Sometimes I wonder who would have imagined that a sleeping bag designed in 1952 would become a quilted jacket, worn in cities all over the world, by many generations, presented in fashion shows, and reinterpreted by genius designers. From the beginning, we have always pushed our ambitions for Moncler to the highest heights. »
« Our actions have not always been perfect, but we have made sure to remain consistent with our vision and our desire to be recognized for the quality of our products, and the energy and inspiration we strive to bring to our projects. »
« I want to thank each and every one of those who dream with us every day: our Moncler family, the Moncler enthusiasts. At Moncler, we all dream together. »
« We move forward into our future, driven by our heritage and pioneering spirit, which always pushes us to bring to life extraordinary pieces and experiences. We are guided by a strong belief: that the extraordinary means taking unknown paths, never forgetting who we are, and where we come from. »
