Bogner Company History
The Bogner brand can trace its roots right back to the 1930's, when German Nordic skier Willy Bogner Sr
established his own range of clothing in 1932. Just four years later at the 1936 Winter Olympics in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bogner
represented his country not only as a skier but also as a fashion-designer - the entire team being decked out in his clothing.
The German team has worn Bogner at every Winter Olympics since ! It's this long history that many consider make Bognor the
inventors of sports fashion. His son, Willy Bogner Jr, took over the company after his father's death in 1977.
With Bogner clothing, the style is definitely as important as the functionality, and the designs are heavily influenced by
Bognor's upmarket non-ski range such as Sonia Bogner, Bogner Man, and Bogner Woman - all extremely popular, particularly
on the continent. The importance of design within the company is reflected in it's ski-wear - close-fitting, almost tailored
appearance of it's gear, give Bogner outfits a real cutting edge.
