Founded in 1952 by René Ramillon and Andrè Vincent the name Moncler is an abbreviation of Monestier-de-Clermont, an Alpine town near Grenoble, France.
The company originally was founded to produce mountaineering equipment, sleeping bags and tents. In 1954 the first down jacket was produced. The same year Moncler supplied the technical equipment for the Italian expedition to K2; in 1955 it supplied the French expedition to Makalù and in 1968 Moncler became the official supplier of the French skiing team during the winter Olympics in Grenoble.
It was during the 1980’s that Moncler became a high end fashion brand especially amongst its younger customers.
