Enter The United Kingdom
Richard Quinn’s feisty proposition on how women should wear prints – boldly, glamorously and with a hint of kink – has made him one of London’s most exciting young talents in recent years. It also makes him one of the wildest names on the rolodex of moncler genius – the multi-label-rotating, drop-based initiative by the luxury skiwear specialist that’s changed how fashion houses approach collaborations. In an exclusive interview ahead of the launch of his second tie-up with the brand on may 28, he tells Keng Yang Shuen what working with an industry giant means for an up-and comer like him – and the future of fashion.

THIS SECOND INSTALMENT OF 8 MONCLER RICHARD QUINN IS ONE ACIDIC TRIP BLENDING FUTURISM AND ’60S FLOWER POWER. TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR INSPIRATION – AND IF YOU’RE A SCI-FI FAN.

“The ’60s was such a liberating and experimental era. I find the prints and shapes from the decade to be really modern and relevant (it explains some of the collection’s key silhouettes such as mini shift dresses, body stockings and feminine belted coats with bejewelled buttons). I also thought about what people then might think of the year 2020 – this idea of the future – and looked at films such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, which resulted in the lookbook images that contrast the collection’s bold prints against a stark white, spaceship-like setting.”

LOOKING AT THE SHEER EXUBERANCE OF THE PRINTS AND SILHOUETTES IN THIS COLLECTION, IT LOOKS LIKE YOU REALLY LET LOOSE WITH YOUR CREATIONS.
