MONCLER IN ANTARTICA 2016

MICHELE PONTRANDOLFO’S SECOND LONE EXPEDITION TO THE SOUTH POLE

 

Following K2 – 60 Years Later, the expedition which took Moncler back to the summit of K2 in 2014 60
years on, the link between Moncler and adventure is being heightened again this year by its partnership with
Michele Pontrandolfo in the world’s second lone exploration of the South Pole. He will be setting off in
November 2015 and is set to arrive in mid-January 2016.

 

Moncler has created all Pontrandolfo’s technical equipment for this exceptional project: garments of the
utmost technical performance purposely designed to tackle the harshest weather conditions and inspired by Moncler Grenoble Fall-Winter 2016/17 Collection.
