My Look: Fusalp

Today, I have sported my new FUSALP ski suit for the first time while taking a walk around Gstaad. Made of a totally stretch material for ease of movement, I have enjoyed doing some yoga stretches in the sunny weather. Thanks to its lightweight and high-tech materials, I don’t need to fear the cold or the humidity.

An icon of the brand’s collections, the MONTANA III jacket is as comfortable on the ski slopes as in the city. Made in a two-ply material with a high-performance microporous membrane, it is windproof, water-repellent and breathable. The ELANCIA II ski pants offer the same advantages, and are made of a technical Schoeller© softshell material with fleece backing.

Key pieces for the ski wardrobe, so comfortable you don’t want to take them off.

My look: MONTANA III jacket in ibis, and matching ELANCIA II ski pants in ibis, both by Fusalp, face-covered jersey roll-neck top by BalenciagaTrekkgirl snow boots by Valentino, andicon Audrey wayfarer sunglasses by Celine.

LoL, Sandra

Fusalp

While being in the mountains, I am always looking for ways to keep me warm whilst staying stylish and maintaining functionality when hitting the slopes, taking a walk and enjoying the après-ski of course. One brand that combines technicity, functionality and elegance perfectly is FUSALP –  a must if you want to fulfill your retro fantasies or if you are looking for some of the most stylish, modern high-performance clothing for the slopes.

In 1952, two visionary tailors from Annecy decided to introduce entrepreneurship to their savoir-faire by creating ski garments, including the skin-tight iconic «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 perfect choice for a returning community of connoisseurs in France as well as around the world.

 Generations of ski champions have performed in FUSALP at international competitions since the ’60s, and made the brand famous by sharing values of discipline, performance and elegance.

A controlling stake in the company was acquired in 2013 by Sophie and Philippe Lacoste, former shareholders and heirs of the Lacoste brand. Their objective was to reinvent and revitalize FUSALP and to introduce its quality products to new segments, also with the help of experienced shareholders such as Florac who understood the ready-to-wear market and could drive the brand’s international expansion.

Mathilde Lacoste

Today, under the creative vision of Mathilde Lacoste, wife of Philippe Lacoste, FUSALP has experienced strong growth. The designer orchestrates a balanced equation of tradition and modernity, as well as innovation and style, by constantly exploring the savoir-faire and historic codes of the brand. She designs contemporary collections for both winter and summer, for the slopes as well as the city.

Chloé x FUSALP

Since last winter, fashionistas around the globe have been craving for FUSALP’s stylish collaboration with Chloé. This line of ski clothing and accessories offers a ’70s spirit and a care-free dash. The two iconic French brands have combined their feminine spirits and dynamic fashion visions to create a versatile capsule collection.

Once you try a FUSALP outfit, you will immediately love the comfort and the way you can move. When I visited the FUSALP store, located at Promenade 74 in Gstaad, I went for this orange combo, that will accompany me, with comfort and elegance, during my escapades in the mountains.

FUSALP – at the peak of style!

Happy Birthday Anouk

Dear Anouk, from the day you came into this world, I was as proud as can be, blessed with you as my beautiful daughter. So every year we had been celebrating this very special day together to mark another milestone in your life. This year is the first time we are separated due to the current pandemic. I am wishing you all the happiness in the world, celebrate to the fullest! Happy Birthday, Anouk, I cannot wait to hold you in my arms again and will always treasure the moment when I held you for the first time 19 years ago, on April 4th, 2002 at 12.34pm.

You laugh with me at ordinary things, you share my thoughts and understand the things I do and say. As you inspire me every day, your name has also inspired many designers to name their creations after it. I love you!

LoL, Sandra
