“Snow covered mountains, city streets and remote forest trails – it’s all home to us. Peak Performance was founded 1986 in Åre, Sweden, by three passionate skiers who wanted to revolutionize ski wear. Today, we’re an international sports fashion brand and breaking new ground is still our reason for being. Our mission is to make active life easier. We unite style and performance and create innovative casual and active wear for a life on the move. Our products are defined by exceptional quality, cutting-edge design and unbeatable performance. Welcome to Peak Performance.”
Based in the heart of Guildford, Peak Performance’s first-ever UK pop-up store brings this thinking to life, showing visitors to the 107 sqm store how to find clothing suitable for every eventuality - from slopes to streets, bike to bar, work to workout.
Unify Brand Partnership has been the UK distributor of Peak Performance since 2013 taking the Swedish sports fashion brand into a number of stores and managing all commercial deals for the UK. The Unify team attended the launch along with key figureheads from Peak Performance’s HQ in Sweden.
