K-Way History

Cast your mind back to Paris in 1965. It's a summer's day but the rain is plummeting from the heavy, dark clouds and ricocheting off the saturated pavement.

Sitting in a sidewalk café, young clothes retailer Léon-Claude Duhamel observed as disgruntled Parisians rushed by in soaking wet clothes, with uncomfortable umbrellas in their hands.

Suddenly it hit him like a stale baguette to the chops: Create a waterproof object that could be carried all times, but which was neither an umbrella nor a raincoat.

Thus the revolutionary K-Way garment was born: Ultra-lightweight, comfortable and completely waterproof nylon jackets and anoraks that could be folded in a small hip bag. Well-priced and convenient, just the thing for European summers.

These anoraks were soon launched on the market and proved to be successful from the beginning. In the first year, 250,000 pieces were sold. In 1970s many partnerships between K-Way and various ski teams took place.

In 1990 the brand was purchased by Superga and in 1993 it was transferred to So.PA.F. merchant bank. In 1999 it was acquired by Milan-based Multimoda Network.

In February 2004 K-Way was included in the Basic Group's brand portfolio. K-Way has reached such a popularity that today it is one of the few very well-known brands and is included as an entry in the dictionary.
