Moncler collaborates with Fortnite to launch new in-game reactive outfits

Luxury fashion brand Moncler has announced its latest collaboration with video game Fortnite.

Inspired by its new 6 Moncler 1017 Alyx 9SM collection, designed by Matthew Williams, the new outfits, accessories and loading screen artwork can be found in Fortnite’s Item Shop. This includes a Moncler Classic Set, Umbra-tube Back Bling, Umbra-Axe Pickaxe and Para-Pluie Glider.

The new Moncler x Fortnite skins aim to celebrate the contrast between light and dark, which is a core theme of the Moncler collection. For this, players can swap between new dark and light outfit styles.

Alternatively, players can also select the new reactive style outfit, which changes from light to dark as players’ altitude gets higher. As player altitude gets lower, each outfit transitions from dark back to light.

Matthew Williams, Creative Director, said: “It’s been very interesting working with the team at Epic and Moncler to bring the new collection to life inside a vibrant digital space like Fortnite. As Moncler was born in the mountains, the new styles in Fortnite authentically honour that heritage.

"The collection celebrates when light meets the dark and the collaboration with Fortnite explores this concept in completely new ways. Digital materials do not follow the rules of the physical world, allowing us to be more creative with these new in-game reactive outfits."

Released in 2017, Fortnite is an online video game developed by Epic Games. The multiplayer game sees players collaborate to survive in an open-world environment, battling other characters who are controlled either by the game itself or by other players.
