Fusalp’s addicted to wool

Born in the French Alps, skiwear brand Fusalp revolutionised skiwear in the early-1950s when it launched the first technical ‘fuseau’ ski stirrup pants, changing the way skiers dressed when hitting the slopes. Adopted by ski champions in the 1960s, Fusalp’s signature silhouettes combine French elegance with a sporty and slender cut.

Now, in a move to further enhance the brand’s dedication to quality, Fusalp has partnered with The Woolmark Company for the first time to unveil a series of 100% Australian Merino wool sweaters for AW19/20.

Titled Wool Addict, the collection stays true to Fusalp’s DNA, celebrating the art of movement and style knitted together with performance and comfort. Using superfine Italian-spun yarn, the series of sweaters have gained the iconic Woolmark certification.

The crew neck ADDICT sweater features clean colour-block design that is a nod to the heritage codes of Fusalp. It is available in dark blue and sepia grey.

Fusalp: The Skiing cardigan

The SKIING cardigan is an updated version of the classic Fusalp sweater and is also available in dark blue and sepia grey.

The WENGEN III sweater and its zipped version WENGEN FIZZ II are two iconic clean-lined Fusalp styles that feature the red, white and blue heritage piping of the brand. They are both available in dark blue, light grey and heather macaron.

Ski and après skiwear hold a special connection with Merino wool, and one which will be forever connected by the fibre’s most well-known benefit: warmth. The original performance fibre, Merino wool is renowned for its superb breathability and next-to-skin comfort. 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable, Merino wool is the ultimate fibre for luxury apparel and the responsible choice for the conscious consumer.
