Italian luxury brand Moncler has opened its second free-standing Canadian location in Vancouver. It joins other premium brands in the city’s rapidly expanding ‘Luxury Zone’, including recently opened Brunello Cucinelli, Versace and Strellson locations. 

Located at 748 Thurlow Street within The Carlyle retail complex, Moncler joins retail locations for Tory Burch and De Beers, as well as a three-level Prada store that is under construction. More luxury brands will be announced for The Carlyle shortly. 

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.

Founded in Milan in 1952, Moncler is an apparel and lifestyle brand most known for its down jackets and sportswear. Moncler took its name from the abbreviation of Monestier-de-Clermont, an Alpine town near Grenoble, France. In 2003, the brand was bought by the Italian entrepreneur Remo Ruffini. Although founded in Italy, Moncler’s flagship store is on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris. Moncler currently operates 13 free-standing stores in the United States, including locations in Aspen CO, Atlanta, Bal Harbour FL, Beverly Hills, Boston, Chicago, Costa Mesa CA, Honolulu, Houston, Las Vegas (2 locations), New York City and Seattle.
