Fusalp transformed the way we ski: merging technical materials with streamlined cuts, they have created fashionable apparel that is also high-performing. The brand has shown that performance and comfort can go hand in hand with style.
The constant quest of technicity and comfort are the drivers of the Maison Fusalp research and development.
In 1952, two visionary tailors from Annecy decided to introduce entrepreneurship to their savoir-faire by creating ski garments, including the skin-tight ‘fuseau’ stirrup pants. Born in the heart of the French Alps, Fusalp—which takes its name from an abbreviation of ‘fuseau from the Alps’—has a signature style that makes it the prefect choice for a returning community of connoisseurs in France as well as around the world.
The ski suit imposed itself as a fully functional component of athletes ski training. To complete its product, ski brands started to develop high performant equipments such as helmets or back protection to ensure athletes safety.
Over the years, Mathilde Lacoste, Artistic Director of Fusalp, collides tradition and innovation by constantly exploring the savoir-faire and historic codes of the brand.
Designing suits giving them an urban twist (Catz II – 2018 Spring/Summer collection) and taking them on the slopes (Umma, Ingrid and Stranda II – 17/18 Fall/Winter collection), MAthilde designs contemporary collections for both winter and summer, for the slopes as well as the city, that combine technicity, functionality and elegance—the three pillars of the brand’s DNA. The technologies and the high quality fabrics and materials allow an ease of movements and a real insulation.
Fusalp’s motto is to design a unique sport-chic silhouette that celebrates the art of movement as well as French elegance on and off the slopes. Fusalp applies its 50 years of legendary tailoring techniques to continually reinvent the clean lines of the iconic fuseau stirrup pants and skisuit.
In 2018 the brand won the Land Rover BORN Global Awards in the cateegory of Sport & Leisure for their peerless and timeless design.
