The announcement comes alongside the launch of Moncler’s second Born to Protect collection, which showcases low-impact fabrics and textiles in a full range of ready-to-wear men’s, women’s and children’s clothes and accessories. The responsible fabrics include recycled nylon and polyester, organic cotton, recovered materials from past collections and ZQ certified merino wool.
The new Born to Protect collection will also feature a number of Moncler’s signature puffer coats and gilets, all of which will be filled with fully traceable down that is a by-product from the food industry, and certified according to the Down Integrity System and Traceability (DIST) protocol.
Adorning the exterior of each piece is the Born to Protect insignia, with the signature Monduck motif featuring the playful comic strip which lines the interior of each jacket.

Moncler’s conscious ethos is also being extended to its packaging, which will now feature low impact materials: Gift boxes and bags will be constructed from a mixture of recycled and responsibly sourced paper, bag handles will be in organic cotton, and garment bags will be made of recycled plastic bottles.
Accompanying the new collection is a short film featuring archival footage of dramatic snow-capped mountain scenery, in homage to Moncler’s alpine beginnings and dedication to protecting this natural landscape in its future.
Moncler’s newest announcements are the latest steps in its wider Sustainability Plan, which is centered on five main pillars: climate action, circular economy, fair sourcing, enhancing diversity and giving back to local communities. Specific goals within the plan include moving to 100% renewable energy at all sites by 2025, recycling 80% of nylon scraps by 2023 and protecting 100,000 people in need from the cold by 2023.
