The all-star, HBCU-style band show off their kinetic range in the new 2 Moncler 1952 collection set against the sounds of nature.
Across the nation, after months of empty stadiums, marching bands and drum corps are returning to their drumlines. This season Document enlisted NYC’s The Empire Marching Elite—a self-described all-star, HBCU-style band championing the art of marching—to explore sound in motion in 2 Moncler 1952, the latest Genius collaboration from the Italian fashion house. Here, members of T.E.M.E.—Lamont, Samantha, Kizzy, Royal, and Alyssa—show off their kinetic range, from just north of New York City in Tibbetts Brook Park, where the sleepy forest hollows are awakened by the sound of a band in unison. Watch these geniuses in motion.
