From a press release:
“Moncler, the high-altitude maison which boasts stores in the world’s most important cities, has added a new retail location to its international network with the inauguration of its first boutique in Washington DC located at CityCenterDC, a much-heralded shopping destination downtown, just five blocks northeast of the White House.
Designed by the architecture studio Gilles & Boissier, which has collaborated with the brand for many years, the new boutique is one of the brand’s largest in the United States, with an overall surface area of 2.185 square feet. It is home to the Moncler Men’s & Women’s ready to wear and accessories collections, including its Moncler Grenoble line which features more technical, performance-focused silhouettes. Five outstanding windows frame the boutique’s exterior, dynamically introducing the visitor to the world of Moncler. This is emphasized by the elegant chêne fumé wood paneling used for the walls and ceiling, the modern effect of the glass and metal used for the display area, and the Carnico grey marble used for the floors. A warm and welcoming atmosphere in the purest haute montagne style, in keeping perfectly with the Maison’s roots.
