Together, we will move forward with the Killy brand, re-defining elegance and technical performance in a new era that will see the ultimate fusion of fashion and function.”

About Killy: Killy, based in Annecy, France, embraces the spirit and energy of Jean-Claude Killy, an accomplished ski legend who won three gold medals in the 1968 Grenoble Olympics and was instrumental in winning selection for Albertville, France as the venue for the 1992 Olympics. The Killy brand has come to symbolize elegance, beauty and performance.

About Eider: Eider was established in 1962 in the heart of the French Alps, close to Mont Blanc. For Eider, the mountains have been an inexhaustible source of inspiration for developing the brand's values and guiding its research. The Eider philosophy is closely linked to the alpine world: authenticity, open-mindedness, commitment, and above all, the humanity essential to adventure. The name, ‘Eider' comes from the name of a north-European duck whose down is known to be the highest quality in the world. Today, Eider is available at more than 2,000 outdoor specialty stores across the U.S. and in many other countries around the world. For more information, log onto www.eider-world.com
