Valentino and Moncler have teamed up to create a new range of outerwear.

The collaboration has been overseen by Valentino’s creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli and consists of an exclusive collection of coats for both men and women.

Designs appear to be distinctly Moncler, which is best known for its luxurious down jackets, but have been customised with elements akin to the Italian fashion house, which even featured two of the garments in its pre-fall 2018 collections in January (18).

The coats feature heritage designs from Valentino’s history, such as the iconic tiger print created by the brand’s founder Valentino Garavani. This particular pattern has been applied to a quilted, hooded, knee-length coat as a graphic print in either green, pink or black.

While another offering from the range sees Piccioli’s Valentino logo – the letters VLTN – printed in white font across the back of a black quilted jacket.

A men’s coat of the same design features the signature logo across the back and sides of the garment.

In addition to outerwear, the two labels have also collaborated on accessories, creating studded, quilted shoulder bags in red, black and taupe, each with a gold chain strap.

The Valentino With Moncler collection is already available to purchase on the official Valentino website, with prices starting from $2,095 (£1,355) for a handbag and ending at $4,200 (£2,500) for the embroidered tiger re-edition quilted down coat. The pieces can also be bought in select Valentino boutiques.

Piccioli was one of eight new designers tapped by Moncler for its Genius design team in February.
