In keeping with the incarnated legend of this ski, the three partners of Authier developed clothing pieces, inspired by the golden years of the fifties, when skiing smelled of enterprise and fashion began making its appearance in the mountains. In the beginning of the nineties that first collections of Authier-Vampire immediately appealed to the tastes of an international and refined clientele, offering an alternative to the nylon and fluorescent trends influenced by skiracing. The integrity of Authier does not merely rely on product imagery or design, but also on innovations that enhance the comfort and practicality of the products: herein lies the reason for the collaboration with the leader agency in technological research like DuPont, that supplies protective and water repellent treatments, and with the Italian Olympic Gold Metalist Deborah Compagnoni that, at the end of her career still enamored with the world of snow, decided to take on a new challenge: to design a technical ski line for Vampire.
Dannenmann Pure takes up desires and dreams and adds stylish creativity. Only those able to emphasize with those they are dealing with can create a feeling of comfort and authenticity. The use of traditional materials such as boiled wool, silk and cashmere is more than a fashionable trend for the young Swabian company. Pure is a true genuine belief. In the selection of materials, from fabric and color to buttons, zips and other details, quality and uncompromising clarity are of the utmost importance. Interaction with people and their environment play the central role. We are not interested in creating a new avant-garde, but rather in allowing our customers to feel comfortable and secure in our clothes.” PURE combines contemporary trends with tradition, clarity with a love of detail and creativity with quality.
