For the past 90 years Descente has dedicated its technical and design skills to creating the world's fastest skiwear. Down to the finest detail, we have refined functionality in pursuit of the ultimate beauty of form.
Our finest skiwear is designed to enrich the spirit as well as to maximize physical performance. The battle to win both skiers' hearts and bodies is the essence of Descente's "functional beauty" and craftsmanship philosophy.
In 2023 Marco Odermatt continued his remarkable run of success, breaking an historic record in the Men's Alpine Ski World Cup. As a rising Swiss star, he won his first World Cup victory in the 2019-2020 season. In the 2022-2023 season, he won 13 races and earned a total of 2,042 points, surpassing the record set by the legendary Hermann Maier in the 1999-2000 season. In addition to creating a new points record, Marco won his second consecutive overall World Cup and giant Slalom discipline titles, as well as a first Super G discipline title. Descente began its partnership with Marco in 2018.
While he has emphatically risen to the pinnacle of world Alpine skiing, his personal love of skiing carries over into private enjoyment of recreational skiing, aligning him closely with young everyday skiers who all have their own various passions for how they enjoy the sport.
The Marco Odermatt capsule collection, created in close collaboration with Marco, will debut in the 2023 autumn-winter season and evolve annually, offering new Descente styling to all.
