SPRING/SUMMER COLLECTION 2017
«Alprausch is influenced by our surroundings, because, well ... Switzerland itself is inspiring.»
What is it that you love most about summer? The smell of the warm breeze which leaves your hair all tangly? Feeling the warmth of the sun on your belly? Going for a swim in the middle of the night? We just can’t get enough of it. In the summer, there’s a taste of freedom in the air. And we sure love to be free.
After all, summer time is adventure time! So grab some shorts or a dress, your favorite swimwear, a light sweater just in case and get going! Switzerland is the perfect place to go roaming about. But wherever you are in the world, there are always new places to explore. This collection is dedicated to everyone who keeps up the exploring spirit and all the wanderers out there – who are, as we know, not all lost.
Since the beginning of Alprausch, we have placed great value on sustainability, proper materials and fair working conditions.
Being a family business, we really care about the way our products are created and how the people who make them are treated. That is why 85% of our products are made in Europe, mostly in Portugal and according to European standards. Our leather products are produced in Turkey and most of our accessories in Bali – all our bags and scarves are produced by hand by a local Balinese family.
All these producers are working with us for a long time now, and we are happy to have them in the Alprausch Team. We choose new producers after a long process of evaluation, afterall our aim is that our products can be worn and used with a clear conscience and accompany your everyday journeys for years to come.
What started as a local Swiss project in 2001, Alprausch has slowly spread into a global phenomenon. Though the company has matured internally, we run by the same philosophy and principles we started with. It is our true intention to share with the world all of the things that make our everyday lives so special.
Enjoying a sharp contrast to other brands, fans are reminded every season that, Alprausch is a family of people not willing to give in to fashion dictated by the masses. Creativity, style, fit and function, these are attributes that we feel make clothing special. By working with our own ideas and style, we have created a line of clothing that is often times viewed as somewhat avantgarde. By embedding positive Swiss ideals into inspirational styles, our goal, is to offer a concept and a story to people who posses originality and the need to live and dress apart from the rest.
