Moncler combats counterfeiters with new technology

The idea of using technology to fight the knock-off industry appears to be gaining traction in the fashion and luxury sector. After Ferragamo’s announcement that they will use inimitable micriochips to thwart counterfeiters, comes a new claim from Moncler that they will equip their clothing with radio frequency identification (RFID) chips to help customers identify original Moncler apparel and avoid fakes.

The French-Italian brand will introduce the technology in their spring-summer 2016 collection. Customers can scan the radio tags and QR codes on the garments using a smartphone app to cross check their wares before purchasing.
