HYKE's Second Moncler Genius Collaboration Is Minimalist and Utilitarian
Featuring streamlined shell coats, quilted puffer jackets, pleated dresses and more.
Cult Japanese label HYKE has joined forces with
HYKE, founded by Hideaki Yoshihara and Yukiko Ode in 2013, is known for its well-tailored mixing of vintage workwear, service uniforms and sportswear. Its distinctive codes possess a penchant for melding minimal designs with high-caliber functionality — a quality that nicely aligns with the pillars of Moncler.
Under 4 MONCLER HYKE, the pair focuses on utility, with leading technical fabrics and finishes, including GORE-TEX INFINIUM™, micro ripstop nylon outerwear, thermo-heated quilting, double closures and YKK AQUASEAL® zippers. Across a black and neutral palette, the range juxtaposes sleek shell jackets and vests in both long and cropped iterations with dramatic quilted puffers. Organic outdoor prints, in shades of sand, stone and cloud, break free from the collaborators’ previously strict adherence to block colors, while straight lines, side slits and puller tapes remind onlookers of HYKE’s influence over the collection.
Men’s and women’s designs merge with one another, specifically across sweatshirts, sweatpants and long-sleeve T-shirts. Bush hats and HYKE Desertyx boots appear safari-ready; and rounding out the range, a pleated dress makes a confident statement.
4 MONCLER HYKE is now available in select Moncler boutiques and on the brand’s website. Take a look at the full collection in the gallery above.
