Veronica Leoni and Sergio Zambon will design the 1952 line

Yet another fresh extension to the Genius concept is taking place within 1952, the highly wearable Moncler sub-brand. We already knew that the talented menswear designer Sergio Zambon was taking care of one half of the line, but today Moncler announced that its womenswear design director is Veronica Leoni. According to Ruffini, Leoni has been working on the line at Moncler for around a year now—ever since her days as Head of Designer Pre-Collection Womenswear at Celine under Phoebe Philo. “Veronica was at Celine for many years,” said Ruffini. “Her vision is super sophisticated, super useful, and super modern.”
