What is the history of Salomon?
Francois Salomon opened a workshop for wood saws and ski-edges in Annecy, France in 1947, where he worked together with his wife and son George. The family-business would soon start making innovative bindings for skis and make their first appearance at an Olympic Games in Chile in 1966. After becoming the world’s leading binding manufacturer, Salomon moves on to create their first skiing boots to great success. Further ventures into gear and other mountain sports follow, with a great number of world-class athletes competing and winning in Salomon equipment, solidifying the brands status as one of the premier companies in the industry.
Who does Salomon collaborate with?
As a leader in its category, Salomon has captivated peoples’ attention far beyond the limits of mountain sports. With the advanced technology and production capabilities the brand boasts, a number of forward-thinking designers have tapped into its eco-system. The first of these designers to really push Salomon into the fashion-world was Boris Bidjan Saberi. Embraced by the avant-garde crowd, the appeal of the collaboration soon flowed over to the rest of the industry, sparking collabs with heavyweights such as Beams, Comme des Garçons, Children of the discordance, and wander, Fumito Ganryu and many more. Today Salomon is as common on the runways of Paris Fashion Week as it is on the trails of the world’s most beautiful mountain ranges.
