Today is the opening day of ISPO 2014. Excited to see new product and inspiration!
ISPO 1970: Ski apparel in graphic black and white from the first year of the ISPO trade show in Munich. The annual international trade show is the premier event for retailers to preview and place orders for new wintersport apparel and equipment. The inaugural show consisted of nearly 11,000 visitors and 816 exhibitors in total representing 34 countries. In 2013, the show claimed 80,000 visitors and 2,000 exhibitors from more than 100 countries.
ISPO 1973: NEW SKI FASHION PRESENTED IN MUNICH According to fashion designers’ vote the female skier will look “slim and slender” in the coming season, fitting just tightly into the new colourful ski-suits which come in different colours. Some of them even show stripes or chequers or a printed pattern.

Celebrating 100 years, Sporthaus Schuster opened in 1913 as a sport specialty shop for mountaineers and skiers. Located in the heart of Munich, the enormous 5,000 square meter / 5-floor store offers all that is good to buy for outdoor sports.
With top-notch merchandising that is both clean and cozy, I love how much energy and vitality Schuster gives to the sale of outdoor gear. This is not, by any means, a traditional, sleepy outfitter. In addition to offering all the usual leading brands, the primary value of Schuster shopping is access to European specialty brands not readily available in the US: Peak Performance, Maloja, Houdini, Eisbar, Dynafit, and so many more.
Check the top floor for a chapter of Deutscher Alpenverein (DAV), the Bavarian mountain club, helpful with educated staff, maps and info. Don’t miss the Gustl store-in-store on the main level featuring contemporary souvenirs celebrating Bavarian heritage. And you won’t be able to miss the 25-meter climbing wall running the height of the shop.
I get a little bit fanatical about this place, so for me it is my first shopping stop in Munich. I allow two or more hours and to be honest, usually have a chaser visit to go back for additional items. At any rate, if you are in Munich do yourself a favor and stop in Schuster!
Sporthaus Schuster: Marienplatz, Rosenstrasse 1-5, 80331 Munich, Germany
The Globetrotter shop in Munich is a massive four floors of outdoor clothing and equipment presented with the most thorough, precise and functional merchandising I have ever seen. This German specialty retailer aims to make shopping an experience – and they succeed.
The top floor hosts a large branch of the Bavarian alpine club, Deutscher Alpenverein (DAV) – complete with extensive maps, information, merchandise and educated staff to help plan mountain adventures.
A 360° tour can be viewed on the Globetrotter web site; this video provides a walking tour – both show off the gorgeous fixtures and unique features of this store. I strongly recommend a stop at Globetrotter to shop the wide selection of premium outdoor brands or just for inspiration.

Here a few shots from the February 2013 ISPO trade show in Munich, Germany — a little preview of Winter 2013/14 apparel.
Luis Trenker: Classic alpine style reinterpreted in gorgeous combinations of natural and synthetic fabrics.
xAlmrausch: Very sweet with traditional alpine motifs.
Ortovox: Color block base layer. Ortovox apparel and pack lines are standouts of clean design and crisp coloration.
Black Yak: By far, the most original and thought provoking apparel collection at the show. Unique and sophisticated silhouettes, patterning, colors and material combinations. Serious inspiration!
Yellow was everywhere at the February 2013 ISPO Munich tradeshow. From gold to lemon and everything in between – the sunny hue appears to be the dominant trend color story for winter 2013/14.
