During my childhood....   

....in the seventies until the early eighties, shiny nylon jackets were most common for the cold time of the year. Although mostly not down filled but padded, they were very comfortable to wear, and I always liked their shine. But by the mid of the 80s, they had come out of fashion and almost completely disappeared. Years later, I found the French being the last bastion where shiny jackets were still "en vogue". After checking out most of the big shopping malls in Paris in 1991, I found and bought my first Moncler, a "Verneuil" model. At that time, down jackets were nothing more than functional and quite bulky looking jacket. No trace of high end fashion yet. I bought two more jackets the following years, but in the mid 90's, the market had dried out also there. It was at a time when Moncler almost went bankrupt and was awarded to Pepper Industries in 1992 by the Grenoble Commercial Court after Moncler had presented them a convincing restructuring project. The idea was to turn Moncler into a fashion label. Thanks to the advent of the Internet, I found out that Moncler did not completely disappear from the planet, and in November 2001, I bought their new "Venise" jacket, extremely shiny and more stylish than those I had seen before. One could see the transformation to a fashion label, however, the material yet felt a bit "strange" compared to the old school models back from the 90s, as it was not as soft anymore as it used to be.  Since I liked shiny nylon jackets since childhood, the "new" Moncler has put a spell on me as well as on my wife. Boutiques were still rare at the beginning of the 21st century, and it was like a hunt to find one of these jackets. I remember the day when I found out that there was a Moncler Boutique in St.Moritz, and a train trip was planned in November 2002 to visit the store. I will probably never forget the day when we made that trip to St.Moritz, not only because we returned back home with 2 jackets, but also because it rained all day long and a mud slide burried the train tracks and heavily delayed our trip back home... Since homepages have become very popular and for personal fun and interest, I have started to create this homepage to figure how this all works, and added quite some information since it has gone online in 2007.  Over all the years, Moncler has kept on producing shiny jackets, and they have become increasingly popular and meanwhile already have cult status. For me and my wife, it is a very sexy piece of clothing, which also brings back childhood memories from the good old 80's......thanks Moncler, keep it on!!
