Vancouver’s Moncler features walls panelled in chêne fumé wood, and grigio carnico marble flooring. Its exterior features an innovative window display facing a laneway. The store was designed by Gilles & Boissier, the architectural firm involved with its stores worldwide. 

The store carries Moncler’s complete product range, including the Moncler Gamme Bleu and Moncler Gamme Rouge collections and two ready-to-wear lines, as well as footwear, bags, and leather goods.

Moncler’s first free-standing Canadian store opened in the summer of 2014 at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre.
