The name is an abbreviation of Monestier-de-Clermont, a village in the mountains near Grenoble.[4] The first quilted jackets were conceived for protecting workers from the cold. They used the jackets on top of their overalls in the small mountain establishment.[5]

The first to note them and realize their potential was the French mountaineer Lionel Terray. The result saw the specialist range "Moncler pour Lionel Terray".[6]

In 1954, Moncler quilted jackets were chosen to equip the Italian expedition to K2, which culminated with the conquest of the earth's second highest summit by Achille Compagnoni and Lino Lacedelli.[7][8]

Moncler also accompanied the French expedition which reached the summit of Makalu in 1955[9] and was the official supplier for expeditions in Alaska organised by Lionel Terray in 1964.[10]

On occasion of the Grenoble Winter Olympics in 1968,[11][12] Moncler became the official supplier of the French national downhill skiing team.[11]

In 2003, Moncler was bought out by the Italian entrepreneur Remo Ruffini, chairman and CEO, who was to introduce the strategy of the global quilted jacket.[13]

The IPO of Moncler on the Milan Stock Exchange took place on 16 December 2013, with an initial value of €10.20 per share.[14] The shares were 27 times oversubscribed and rose 47% on the first day, resulting in a market capitalization of more than €4 billion.[15][14][16]

In February 2018 Moncler has launched the Moncler Genius project, a new creative and business model where well-known designers create distinct collections interpreting Moncler’s identity that are released on monthly basis.[17][18][19]

The P.C. Hooftstraat is a shopping street in Amsterdam, Netherlands. In 1876 it was named after Pieter Corneliszoon Hooft (1581–1647), a Dutch historian, poet and playwright. The street is located in the stadsdeel Amsterdam Oud-Zuid and runs from the Stadhouderskade to the Vondelpark. It is crossed by the Hobbemastraat and the Van Baerlestraat.

In 1883 a horsecar-service started in this street to connect the Dam with the Willemsparkweg, one of the new upper-class neighbourhoods in Amsterdam-Zuid. In 1903 this horsecar was replaced by the new electric tramway line 2. A year later another tramway, line 3, also had the street in its route. This tramway was in existence until tracks were added on the Vondelbrug and both lines were switched to use the shorter route.

In the last decade the P.C. Hooftstraat has developed to become one of the most expensive shopping streets in the Netherlands. Several Dutch and international and exclusive brands have stores here. The following stores are in the street:
