Teaming up with
OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST AND TWO-TIME OVERALL ALPINE WORLD CUP CHAMPION BODE MILLER OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED A PARTNERSHIP WITH U.S.-BASED PERFORMANCE OUTERWEAR AND APPAREL BRAND AZTECH MOUNTAIN TODAY.
Bode discovered Aztech Mountain last summer during a ski trip to Portillo, Chile. This started a conversation with Aztech Mountain that ultimately led to today’s partnership agreement announcement.
“From the moment I was introduced to Aztech Mountain I knew it was world class,” said Miller. “I wanted to partner with a company that provides top level design and performance both on and off the mountain. The quality of the fabrics, construction of the jackets and pants and attention to detail at every level is impressive. The team we have at Aztech is dedicated to being the best in terms of quality and construction in order to improve the experience for the customer. I look forward to working with Aztech Mountain to build the greatest technical sports apparel brand on the market."
In addition to holding an equity interest in the company, Miller will assume the role of Chief Innovation Officer. Miller will also serve as the face of the Autumn/Winter 2016 ad campaign that was photographed by Bruno Staub and styled by Jay Massacret, both fashion industry heavyweights.
Aztech Mountain’s cofounder Heifara Rutgers commented, “David and I had a crazy dream many years ago to create a performance outerwear brand that was made for discerning guys that work and live between places like Aspen and New York, who are gear, fitness and sports obsessed. We’re both serious skiers ourselves and to partner with an athlete of this caliber is a validation of our vision and our product. Having Bode on our team to bounce ideas off of — be our sounding board — pushes the envelope in terms of product development, it allows us refine our designs and techniques. This partnership with Bode holds David, Aztech Mountain and myself to the highest standards for excellence – something that transcends directly to the consumer as the best possible product on the market.”
Aztech Mountain just released its latest fall/winter collection, which is available at global points of sale including Barneys New York, Harrods, Lane Crawford, Performance Ski Aspen, Pesko, Mr. Porter and aztechmountain.com.
