Paris Alpine Studio co-create and bring their Fashion gaze and exclusivity to create new brand territories for Outdoors brands. It’s really difficult nowadays for a Brand to differentiate in saturated Fashion or Sportswear markets : between first rank worldwide labels, historic or new born e-commerce brands, the market is getting noisy with a profusion of products and content on all the marketing and digital platforms and Social Media. Paris Alpine Studio brings its Fashion gaze and exclusivity through the product identity, usage and innovation.

Who is Ludovic Alban?
My guest is Ludovic Alban, Co-Founder of @parisalpinestudio a collective of creative agencies making the conjunction of 2 inspirational worlds : the Paris Fashion and the French Alps Outdoors apparel Worlds.
Ludovic Alban, Co-Founder of Paris Alpine Studio on how to revolutionize and de-cluster the worlds of Outdoors apparel and Fashion.
A great experience as Menstyle Stylist and artistic direction for Carven in Paris
Ludovic Alban guides his professional career as his personal life: with passion, instinct of the surrounding world and creative thinking.
After graduating from Toulouse Advanced School of Fashion Industry, and a bachelor in Marketing, Ludovic made his first steps in Fashion at Yves Saint Laurent Men. Then he became Outerwear and leather stylist for Hermès, the prestigious French Maison. Before being called by Carven to resurrect the brand. An exercise Ludovic particularly likes, which is defining a comprehensive and universal brand strategy. He eventually did it to bring back successfully the iconic Chevignon wild duck.
The Look Skiwear project was a cornerstone
Ludovic took the challenge of creating a skiwear collection for Look, formerly dedicated to the world of high-end cycling. Technology, tradition and design were the cornerstones
of this mission. Capturing the essence of the brand, imagining impactful concepts and translating codes are part of the expertise of the artistic director, a task he performs with passion.
The Story of Paris Alpine Studio
The Story of the Collective Paris Alpine Studio initiated 10 years ago from a Human and Professional connection between Ludovic Alban and Georges Pessey, the Founder of Jonathan & Fletcher, on the Look Skiwear project. Georges’s experience in the Outdoor market is impressive. He has been working on the equipment of the most famous athletes in the world for the last 30 years in the French Alps. Their first collaboration, on the revival of the Premium Look Skiwear brand was already very challenging and an Avant-Garde.
A very good inspiration to effectively launch a collective between the two, with the objective to Revolutionize the Outdoor market.
