The accompanying short film, directed by Irish artists Páraic and Kevin McGloughlin, narrated by rapper Saint Jhn, and featuring music from the 2023 adventure comedy The Book of Clarence, brings the collection to life. The visuals seamlessly merge Brooklyn's urban vibe, Jay-Z's hometown, with Moncler's mountainous heritage.
Moncler x Roc Nation: Genius is Everywhere
Snowy peaks juxtaposed against the concrete jungle symbolize the journey of living genius and rising above the noise. The film encapsulates the essence of Moncler's The Art of Genius immersive event at London Fashion Week in February 2023, further solidifying the successful partnership.
Jay-Z and Roc Nation's prior involvement at the event encouraged attendees to "use their voice and become the creator," with vocals engineered by renowned producer Mike Dean. The new Genius collection extends this narrative, offering a unique blend of urban flair and alpine elegance, inviting fashion enthusiasts to explore the intersection of genius and style.
