A star is rising in fashion – Zimtstern
If Zimtstern would write in your friendship book it would look something like this:
Year of birth: 1995
Place of birth: Zurich, Switzerland
Parents: Thomas Meyer and Reto Kuster
Favourite sports: Snowboarding, skateboarding, surfing and biking
Special features: Simple European style with surprising details, sustainable, high quality, full of life
I wish you: Many beautiful and stylish moments with me!
But now seriously: Zimtstern was founded almost 20 years ago with the idea to develop an alternative to the existing range of snowboard clothing. The initial garage label with a homemade first collection developed quickly into an international renowned label. The Swiss brand thrives on the spirit of innovation and creativity of its young and dedicated team riders. The typical Zimtstern style is reinterpreted with each collection and adapted to the needs of the athletes.
Snowwear for any snowboarder needs
With Zimtstern you are well prepared for all weather conditions on the mountain. The snowboard team is involved in all development processes and puts the snowwear to the test as well. To cater optimally to different usages and target groups, Zimtstern has divided the outerwear collection in four characteristic lines: CHOP, WHIP, BEAT and for those who are still growing, the YOUNG STAR Line.
Originally Zimtstern also had the DLX line, but this line is now integrated into the CHOP line. This line is the ultimate snowwear for all mountain riders. Style is brought to the next level while the quality of the snowboard pants and snowboard jackets is first class. Comprised of high-tech, 2-way stretch fabric, an ideal weather protection and a DWR finish, the CHOP line is perfectly suited for the backcountry. The breathability is 20.000 g and the water column 20.000 mm.
In this line the Zimtstern style is combined with a sporty look. The star is the most important design element. 2-way stretch is also used here. The non-porous PU coating on the bottom side of the fabric creates a high resistance to water and wind while remaining breathable. The breathability is 10.000 g and the water column 10.000 mm.
The BEAT line uses contrasting details to make you look even better on your snowboard. A light and soft plain weave with the non-porous PU coating on the bottom side of the fabric provides optimal wearing comfort. The DWR finish is the cherry on the cake in terms of quality. The breathability is 10.000 g and the water column 10.000 mm.
The YOUNG STARS line only has one goal: giving the stars of tomorrow the great Zimtstern look without compromising on quality. Mission accomplished, we’d say. What works for adults is the minimum requirement for kids, because the fabric is much more often brought to its limits. That’s why just well-tried solid twill fabric is used. The breathability is 10.000 g, the water column 10.000 mm.
Streetwear – Style with stars
According to Zimtstern, chic and sporty do not contradict each other. You will agree when you take a look at the streetwear for men and women. Simple design in perfect harmony with discreet logo prints.
Jackets, hoodies, and shirts – inner and outer values matter
Duffshell 3K™ Plain Oxford
Duffshell 3K™ Plain Oxford is a strong but soft nylon fabric with PU coating. Thanks to the DWR finish the material is perfectly suited to jackets and coats. “3K” means that it has a water column and breathability of 3000, and the name “Oxford” stands for the typical Oxford structure.
If you like a little bit of shimmer, then you are at the right place with the Duffshell™ Sparkz material. This technical nylon fabric with dot pattern is used for quilted jackets and parkas. Of course, the DWR finish and PU coating are used here as well. The breathability is 5000 g and the water column 600 mm.
The Sweet Mélange fabric gives sweaters and pullovers a cosy wearing comfort. The material made of a cotton-polyester compound is easy to maintain and keeps its shape.
In addition Zimtstern also uses single as well as striped jersey, French terry and single jersey organic cotton.
Accessories complete every style
Zimtstern is very proud to be the only Swiss brand that has its own New Era cap design. If that wasn’t enough excitement for your head, Zimtstern also has beanies and headbands in their collection.
You can get handbags and backpacks with great features and great materials from the Swiss brand as well. They are just perfect for your weekend trips to the mountains. Snowboard in the car, just the necessary things in your Zimtstern backpack and you are ready to go.
Bike Collection by Zimtstern
At the beginning of 2011 Zimtstern presented their first bike collection that consisted of technical and functional bike clothing combined with a sophisticated design. The collection consists of bike jerseys and shorts as well as bike shirts. With these stylish garments you bring the urban look to the mountain without compromising on technical finesse. Special fabrics and features, like the Sanitized® hygiene function, make life on your bike easy.
Nothing stands in the way of your downhill adventure in terms of bikewear.
