MARTIN FOURCADE:
ABOUT TOWN WITH THE CHAMPION OF THE SLOPES 

OFF-PISTE STYLE CONFESSIONS FROM THE GOLD MEDAL-WINNING FRENCH SKIER, WHO DRESSES DOWN WHEN HE'S NOT ON THE SLOPES. BUT WATCH OUT! DON’T TOUCH HIS JACKETS...
Forty-nine victories in the World Cup - plus four gold medals scooped up at the 2016 Oslo World Championships in the biathlon, mixed relay and sprint. Gold-medal winning French athlete Martin Fourcade, ambassador for Rossignol Apparel's Urban collection, has some very clear ideas about both sports and fashion: “In the world of sports, you have to know what your goals are. And when I come to choose an item of clothing I’m just the same. I can spend a whole day looking for a pair of pants because I know exactly what I want. That's why my wife hates going shopping with me.”
 
KNOWING HOW TO LOSE...

There are a few things that give you an edge in a race, such as physical strength, strategy and the quality of your equipment. To be a world champion you have to know how to manage these things every day. But it’s also important to know how to lose, because it makes the victories even more special.

MY STYLE: I DON’T COPY ANYONE

I'm not after a polished look. This is another thing I’ve learned from sports: the only way to succeed is to find your own way. So I choose the clothes I like, and I don't copy anyone else.

CONFESSION: FUN IN THE CITY

I love spending my free time in the city. It’s great because I live in the mountains all year round. When I’m there I feel like I’m in a theme park! When I'm home, though, it's all about the peace and quiet, and my organized side really takes over. Although I must confess I own lots of clothes and accessories too. They're mostly wool hats!

JACKETS: MY SECOND SKIN

I particularly like to wear technical fabric jackets. I wear them unzipped and coordinated with a matching sweater. When you're used to being in the cold for so many hours, jackets become more than just coats - they practically become a second skin.
