Head Sports was founded in 1950. At the time, they were a ski company looking to make a name for themselves with their more expensive pressed metal skis. Rejected at first, they eventually grew in popularity thanks to multiple Olympic victories on Head skis and became widely accepted in the ski world.
Lindsey Vonn also knows a thing or two about the Olympics. In her illustrious career, she has won an Olympic gold while notching two bronze medals as well. Now Lindsey Vonn and Head Sportswear are mastering the slopes and après ski together in their newest iteration of the Head Legacy collection.
Channeling Your Inner Lindsey Vonn
Après ski literally means "after ski" and is characteristically defined by the social activities that take place after a day on the mountain. However, for many (ourselves included), the phrase has become a lifestyle, one where people work hard to play hard. The new Legacy Collection collaboration between Lindsey Vonn and Head Sportswear executes this transition perfectly helping you seamlessly carve your path from the slopes to the bar in style.
Make no mistake about it, the Legacy Collection is very fashion forward. If you have seen images of Vonn, you know she has an elegant sense of style. From metallics to luscious cashmere and faux fur, Vonn's elegance is on display throughout the collection.
"What I love about the new Legacy Collection is that no matter if you are spending time on the slopes or just relaxing with your friends at après ski you are going to look and feel amazing," says Vonn.
In other words, whether you are pairing the slim jet bib pants with a puffy down jacket while ripping GS turns or with a nice sweater while sipping cocktails at après ski, you can channel your inner Lindsey and look like a champion.
Head Sportswear Brings Years of Technical Expertise
Don't confuse the Legacy Collection's fashion-forward look with a lack of function. Vonn and Head, both ski industry icons and would never allow it.
"We created this collection using premium materials and cutting edge technology
to make sure you are supported while skiing but at the same time we have made the designs chic and fun so you look amazing at the same time," elaborates Vonn.
The Legacy Collection was developed in Austria and Zurich, engineered in Italy, and manufactured in Europe. In doing so, Head used high-tech/eco-friendly fabrics, that are as trailblazing as their metal pressed skis were 70 years ago. By using PFC-free materials, along with premium materials, such as merino tecnowool and ethical down they created a line that performs as great as it looks.
The Ultimate Ski to Après Ski Clothing
When two ski industry icons join forces you know only good can come from it. This is certainly the case when it comes to the new Legacy Collection collaboration between Head Sportswear and Lindsey Vonn. Vonn's sense of fashion and knowledge of the sport is unparalleled. Similarly, Head Sportwear brings decades of experience being at the forefront of technical ski apparel. Together, they have created a line of ski clothing that is fashionable, functional and will have you performing your best on and off the mountain.
Is the Legacy Collection too chic for you? I get it. Not everyone can pull off Lindsey Vonn's look. However, you can still channel your inner Snow Bunny with our Certified Snow Bunny Ski Hoodie and t-shirt. Both are super soft, comfy and perfect for sitting in the lodge sipping hot chocolate by the fire.
