1952

THE ORIGINS

The origins of the name lie in its very roots: Moncler is in fact an abbreviation of Monestier-de-Clermont, a mountain village near Grenoble. Here, entrepreneur René Ramillon and Andrè Vincent founded the company in 1952, which would go on to produce the renowned down jacket, creating garments conceived to protect workers who wore them over their overalls and that offered high resistance and protection against the harshest climates and that were put to the test in a variety of expeditions.

1954

THE EXPEDITIONS

French mountaineer Lionel Terray first noticed Moncler products and foresaw their potential. The result was the specialist range ‘Moncler pour Lionel Terray’. In 1954, Moncler’s down jackets were chosen to equip the Italian expedition to K2 (8.611 meters) which culminated in the conquest of the world’s highest summit by Achille Compagnoni and Lino Lacedelli. In 1955, they equipped the expedition on the Makalù (8.470 meters) and later on, in 1964, in Alaska (6.190 meters).
