NEW YORK, NEW YORK (NOVEMBER 30, 2021) –Black Crows, the Chamomix performance brand founded by professional skiers Camille Jaccoux and Bruno Compagnet in 2006, celebrates its 15th anniversary this winter with a limited-edition collection of beautiful and design-driven skis and apparel that sit at the intersection of adventure, innovation, fashion.
The collection, titled “blackcrows fifteen,” consists of five of the brand’s iconic skis, as well as a range of apparel and accessories that have all been reimagined by renowned Parisian designer Yorgo Tloupas, a collaborator with the brand since inception and who has led the graphic designs since Black Crows debut in 2006. The blackcrows fifteen collection has been designed with the brand’s signature pink at the forefront. The color is a direct reference to Black Crows first-ever product, the iconic hot pink Corvus ski, a color choice that broke the design codes of skiing forever at launch in 2006. The collection is also marked by integration of the brand’s signature chevron pattern, reminiscent of six black crows flying in unison.
“The blackcrows fifteen identity celebrates fifteen years of the brand with the only shape that the company has been using during all these years : the chevron. This simplified form of a bird comes to life in the geometry of a circle, built with fifteen rotating chevrons. Paired with the iconic brand icon, this perfect circle become a medal of core skiing authenticity. And of course, fifteen years after launching its first ski – the corvus – in bright pink and black, blackcrows gives an homage to that daring color combination in the form of a capsule collection complementing the 5 models of blackcrows fifteen skis produced in limited pieces each.” – Yorgo Tloupas
