Fusalp, the French fashion house, owned since 2013 by Lacoste heirs Sophie and Phillipe Lacoste, is collaborating with the equally venerable Chloe on a ski wear collection. Fusalp has already been dubbed one of the “seven chicest skiwear brands” by L’Officiel and this collaboration can only add to their reputation. Here’s more detail, courtesy of WWD:
Chloé and Fusalp have teamed on a skiwear capsule collection, with co-branded technical outerwear, knitwear and accessories designed with an eye to the slopes as well as urban settings.
It’s the first time the two French labels, both founded in the early Fifties, have worked together. The collection will be sold on Net-a-porter first, and then, starting in November, on the web sites of both brands.
The pieces on offer include a quilted puffer jacket, high-waisted flared pants, a branded helmet and a ski suit.
Backed by a group of “high-profile, French investors,” Fusalp has grown to fifty stores, and claims its 2020 sales will be thirty million Euros.
More coverage of the collaboration can be found at MFFashion who report that the line includes “padded jackets, coats, shoes, tight pants, ski suits and thick sweaters.” Additional coverage can be found at Numero, and at Madame Figaro who write that Fusalp’s competition jackets are at the “cutting edge of the genre.”
