FALL/WINTER COLLECTION 2018–2019
Alprausch was born out of a deep love for winter. Nothing beats a day in the snow- covered mountains, experiencing nature firsthand, and cosying up near a fireplace afterwards. There’s that distinct smell of ice and burning wood in the air, and the familiar muffled sound of snow falling.
It’s the season of layering, and we at Alprausch know quite something about that. We’ve got you covered from your undies to your jacket, using only materials that we know will make you feel comfortable and warm so that you can get the best out of winter, whether you spend it indoors or outdoors. After all, winter offers endless opportunities – all you have to do is to get going and explore them!
We also believe that clothing should be fun and playful. That’s why we don’t really care about conventions or trends. Heck, we just wanna have fun with it! For our collection, Switzerland offers so many intriguing traditions and peculiarities to be inspired by – all we have to do is pick some and rework them in our unique Alprausch way to come up with the creative and fun daily wear that makes Alprausch so special.
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.
