HERITAGE AND CRAFTSMANSHIP
SEVEN DECADES OF INSPIRATION, INNOVATION AND CRAFTSMANSHIP
“Born in Bregenz in 1950 we come from a long journey of inspiration, innovation and craftsmanship.
We believe that the future of fashion is to be found in substance. In products and experiences with unique stories. About workmanship, creativity, sustainability and quality. About doing things different. About understanding the needs of our confident consumers and to make them shine. Our aim is to offer market leading European skinwear and an inspiring consumer journey. Our products are close to the skin and very close to us. That’s why we love what we do and we do what we love.”
WOMEN’S S SHAPE
A FOCUS ON THE FEMALE SILHOUETTE
The focus is on the female silhouette, representing timeless elegance and luxury whilst gently incorporating current trends. The figure-embracing cuts featuring the best workmanship and quality have inspired Wolford customers around the world for many years.
A FAVORITE OF STARS AND PERFORMANCE ARTISTS
Prominent artists, actors and singers rely on the quality and exclusivity of Wolford products for their performances. The brand is a favorite of the stars, remains discreetly in the background, is worn “underneath” or is actively and visibly put in the limelight. Wolford products are continually present on the world‘s stages: people like to rely on the European design and quality at the theater, in films and on television.
PARTNERSHIP WITH DESIGNERS AND ICONIC PHOTOGRAPHERS
Ever open to creative ideas, Wolford shows how knitting technology can be turned into unique products through its partnerships with prominent designers. The visual presentation of the brand is distinctive. In the past decades, Wolford has also pointed the way from a visual perspective, remaining faithful to its vision of a sophisticated visual language. Well-known photographers such as Helmut Newton, Howard Schatz, Jean Baptiste Mondino, Bruno Bisang, Thiemo Sander, Günter Kathrein, Francis Giacobetti, Markus Klinko & Indrani and Rankin have effectively captured the essence of Wolford fashion.
