Descente, a Japanese skiwear and accessories company, is an evolution of sportswear technology. The company was formed in 1935 and the company logo depicts three basic techniques: traverse, schuss and side-slip. How convenient for a ski clothing specialist.
In 1954 Descente began serious development of skiwear products. At this time, Kazuyoshi Nishimura, Japan's first professional skier and a highly creative person who held strong views about skiwear, was invited to become an advisor to the company. In 1970 Descente was successfull in developing the world´s first three-dimensionally cut downhill racing suits. You surely know the famous Magic Suit.
Descente is constantly seeking innovative ways to produce even better sports apparel. Working with feedback from world class amateur and professional athletes and teams Descente creates garments to help them perform at their best. The knowhow gained from this has been the cornerstone of Descente's product development for sixty years.
Over the years, the company has worked with large numbers of leading athletes to develop sportswear products that give them the extra edge they look for when competing at the highest levels (for example Japanese, Swiss, Spanish and Canadian teams in the Winter Olympics 2002 with Descente Vortex suits and uniforms, Dominique Gisin and Lara Gut in the Winter Olympics 2014 with Descente ski suits and many others). The company won an ISPO for its Allterain Transform Jacket in 2013.
There is a story behind the manufacture of each and every garment carefully crafted at Descente. Expertise and craftsmanship have been passed on over the years through the hands of technicians, and each garment is the result of decades of accumulated knowledge.
What Descente most treasures is to incite those who love the sport. Attractiveness which a thing originally has is converted into a form by design. Brand narrative pursues design with intention down to detail. Brand narrative creates well-honed functional beauty. Descente wear created by the manufacturing philosophy cultivated by the top-level performance and experience provides discoveries and surprises exceeding expectations.
