AFFALTERBACH, Germany/LUGANO, Switzerland — May 2, 2018 — The exclusive AMG Performance Wear collection is available. The collection, devised jointly by the Mercedes-AMG Performance brand and the Swiss cycling apparel brand ASSOS from Lugano, includes innovative jackets, T-shirts, polo shirts and trousers. It’s the first clothing range in the world that’s custom designed for AMG enthusiasts. Developed in Switzerland, the items are exclusively hand-made in Europe to guarantee the highest possible quality and topmost craftsmanship.
The collection for AMG Performance enthusiasts and sporty motorists boosts the perfect interplay between high-tech textiles and hand-crafted finishing. High-performance functionality, including breathability, optimum moisture-wicking and body temperature control, comes paired with an exclusive design, ergonomic fit and lightweight manufacture. The collection, specially developed for Mercedes-AMG, initially comprises eleven products with the AMG design. Each item in the AMG Performance Wear range has been manufactured with the objective of ensuring the wearer remains comfortable at all times, even on long arduous drives.
The centrepiece of the sporty clothing line is the eye-catching AMG FALLJACKET. It consists of extremely lightweight, resilient high-performance fibres combined with down, and immediately grabs the attention with its distinctive 3D look. With its excellent insulating properties, this outdoor jacket is ideally suited for spring or autumn wear. It is also available in a ladies’ version with a fitted waist.
The AMG Performance Wear collection was the result of intensive development work involving designers and textiles specialists from ASSOS of Switzerland along with Mercedes-AMG racing driver Maro Engel, who represents the clothing range as an AMG brand ambassador. ASSOS of Switzerland has been a partner of the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula 1 team since 2014. The company shares with AMG its enthusiasm for performance and sporting excellence. Out of this shared passion the world’s first AMG Performance Wear range was born. Innovative technologies and the finest craftsmanship that accentuate the accomplishment of sporty drivers – this is the claim to high quality the Swiss company is realising with AMG Performance Wear, just as the Mercedes-AMG engineers do with their vehicles.
