Moncler and Antoni Tudisco Take Us on an Extraordinary World Tour
Last week, Moncler kicked off it’s 70th anniversary celebration with a sensorial multi-city experience aptly titled The Extraordinary Expedition. The roving exhibit flips the idea of a traditional gallery on its head, meshing the real and digital worlds for a one-of-a-kind exploration of the brand’s history featuring immersive graphics, NFTs, and physical showcases of Moncler’s most iconic archival styles (including collaborations with legendary designers like Pierpaolo Piccioli, Rick Owens, and Palm Angels). To mark the occasion, the Italian luxury brand collaborated with the artist Antoni Tudisco on a series of high impact NFTs inspired by the cities hosting The Extraordinary Expedition world tour—New York, London, and Seoul. Below, we caught up with Tudisco after the NYC event to ask him about his inspirations, dreams, and the future of fashion.
