Bogner and the Olympic Games – that’s a long-lasting partnership: The German athletes have worn Bogner fashion consecutively at 17 Olympic Winter Games since 1936. In London 2012 Bogner outfitted the summer athletes for the very first time. In Sochi 2014 the German team will wear Bogner once again. That’s an Olympic record!

“To march all together into the world’s biggest sporting event - it’s a crazy feeling.”
Having won double gold at Vancouver in 2010, while having to sit out 2006 with an injury, Maria Höfl-Riesch knows the highs and lows of the Olympics. Sochi will be the Garmisch-Partenkirchen native’s second and final Games. Says she: “Now I have a better sense of what I’m striving for ”.
Of course both variants of the jacket are highly functional and offer climate control. The outer material is a lightweight ripstop, a breathable polyamide nylon with waterrepellent properties thanks to a up to a water depth of 20,000 millimetres.
Our women’s ski pants with their unique rose pattern are modeled on the large flower kerchiefs of traditional Russian costumes - which keep away the cold on the inside and provide a warming glow on the outside. in addition to practical pockets they are supremely functional being waterproof up to 20,000 millimetres and offering very high breathability.
We have a guiding principle here at Bogner: We don’t just want our athletes’ outfits to represent our country, we also want them to honor the host country. So, our designs depict something that’s typical of the location. We feel that this unique design is a polite gesture to Russia, but also a special souvenir for our athletes.
Gotthardin Thylmann, chief designer of the Bogner Sports line for three decades, shares his inspiration for the new olympic collection.
