FILA Fall/Winter 2020 at Milan Fashion Week
(FILA Luxembourg S.à r.l.) - A tribute to the heroes who scaled snowy mountain summits and were the first to conquer them, to the champions who skied down the highest peaks, breaking speed records. Their courage, their tenacity, their determination: these are the values that inspired the FILA Fall / Winter 2020 collection. A journey that begins in the environment that has always been a bold challenge to human endurance: mountains.
For Fall / Winter 2020, Creative Directors Antonino Ingrasciotta and Josef Graesel have designed a collection that celebrates the legendary achievements of winter sports, the men who wore FILA and have earned a permanent place in the record books of their sport and who fill the pages of the history of the brand.
Three names, three legends. Reinhold Messner, Ingemar Stenmark, the Mahre brothers.
The brand’s archives are the main source of inspiration for an urban and sporty, functional, high-performance, and stylish collection. The heroic feat of Reinhold Messner, the first person to summit Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen, wearing his unforgettable blue FILA overalls, is celebrated in the heights featured on jackets, sweatshirts and tops, a nod to the altitude of the summits that Messner has conquered.
The famous reinforced and tailored, yellow and blue ski jacket that Ingemar Stenmark wore when he won the World Cup in 1978, has been modernized and becomes an unmistakable feature in an urban, sporting and high-performance winter wardrobe.
The unforgettable style of the Mahre twins, among the best American skiers of all times, is echoed in colour blocked sweatshirts and trousers with padded 3D detailing.
Neoprene, waterproof and windproof nylon, fabrics that combine wool and nylon, and tops in angora and wool and fleece are all part of the collection. The colours too are authentic to FILA’s DNA: navy, red, white, dark blue and accents in yellow and black.
