MILAN, September 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Rossignol Apparel - a subsidiary of Rossignol Group, designer, manufacturer and distributor of apparel and accessory collections under the Rossignol brand - announces the release of #URBANESCAPE, the new FW'17 campaign starring Olympic and World Champion Martin Fourcade, fresh holder of the Biathlon World Cup for the 6-time in a row and winner of five medals at the 2017 Hochfilzen World Championships.
The campaign, produced by Paris-based creative agency Publicis, portrays a previously unseen façade of Martin Fourcade as he takes a journey in a timeless, dream-like Paris.
In the series of creative subjects, Martin Fourcade and his female counterpart, model Marizanne Visser, glide through the streets, slalom between columns, jump from the Trocadero stairs and finally cross the Pantheon square, leaving behind a vivid trail of red and blue powder, symbolizing skier's tracks painted in Rossignol's corporate colors. In this city getaway scenario, the two confidently wear Rossignol's FW'17 collection new urban-cool garments - and the city suddenly belongs to them.
Technical excellence, innovation and comfort converge in Rossignol's sophisticated FW'17 collection, presenting garments in which functionality and contemporary style blend in with retro shapes and avant-garde fabrics to create the perfect urban-inspired collection.
The FW'17 campaign opens a new chapter in the history of the iconic outdoor and winter sports brand, extending its legendary mountain DNA to the challenges of urban lifestyle.
The campaign will debut in September 2017 on print, OOH and online and will run in France, Italy, Benelux and Nordic markets. Rossignol and Martin Fourcade fans can learn more about the campaign's behind the scenes on Rossignol.com and Rossignol's Instagram page @rossignolapparel .
