EVENT: Alps & Meters Announces Designed by Tradition Series to Occur Together with Premium Retailers
Inspired by the romantic traditions and rich history of skiing and alpine sport, the premium alpine sportswear company Alps & Meters is excited to announce their Designed By Tradition speaker series. In partnership with premium retailers nationwide, Alps & Meters founder Louis Joseph will conduct 30 to 60 minute intimate fireside interviews with a panel of writers, artists and distillers surrounding the themes of craftsmanship, tradition, and alpinism.
Designed By Tradition series aims to introduce Alps & Meters in its idyllic
setting while spotlighting local makers, premium retail partners and heroes who
are living the brand in mountain towns from all over the country. After the
interview sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to meet and greet the
Alps & Meters team and founders. Guests will also enjoy cocktails and light
refreshments while perusing goods from the Alps & Meters FW15 Forged
Performance Outerwear Collection. In addition, events in Portland and Boston
will offer on-site complimentary gift-wrapping in time for the holiday season.
& Meters' inspiration is drawn from the past, from places, and from
individuals whose values reflect a passionate appreciation for nostalgic
mountain experiences and memories. Based on the belief that there is an
enduring truth embedded within the beauty of alpine sport, The Designed By
Tradition event series is designed to draw together generations of alpine
enthusiasts and newcomers in order to learn more about and continue to share
the lasting traditions of mountain life and alpine sport.
