Forged Performance

During the 40s and 50s, the unique separates of jackets and pants replaced the one-piece in an effort to provide skiers with enhanced choices of fit, style, color, and material. “Tailor-mades,” the first alpine sportswear pieces created with couture-specific standards for female skiers were beautifully crafted in terms of their patterns, fabrications, and attention to technology. It is with this same recognition of winter sport’s specific demands of fit, tailored elegance, and performance that Alps & Meters presents the Piste Bomber.
