MONTREAL, Aug. 27, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - CALL IT SPRING is excited to announce its first-ever partnership with Canadian freestyle skiers and Olympic athletes, Maxime, Chloe and Justine Dufour-Lapointe. The three world-class skiers, who have won several medals, have joined forces with CALL IT SPRING to curate the perfect Après-Ski collection, which includes footwear, handbags and accessories.

"This partnership with CALL IT SPRING gives us the opportunity to make our first steps in the world of fashion," stated Justine Dufour-Lapointe, gold medalist in mogul skiing at the Sochi Olympic Games. "We are very proud to have taken part in the Olympic Games and that our performances have inspired so many young people to go beyond their limits. This collaboration will enable us to show another side of our personality and our passion for fashion to all Canadians. We're really excited!"

The collection features 30 items ranging from winterized boots and booties, to knitwear, accessories and handbags. With styles that can easily be dressed up or down, the Après-Ski collection is perfectly on trend with the season's key colours like bordeaux and navy, as well as staple winter materials like felt and faux-shearling. The fashion-savvy sisters will also be the faces of a campaign created exclusively for the collection.

"We were thrilled to partner with Maxime, Chloe and Justine to build the perfect Après-Ski collection," said Catherine Laporte, Marketing Director for CALL IT SPRING. "They have an innate fashion sense and truly embody the CALL IT SPRING spirit. Most of all, they are great role models for our generation."

The Après-Ski collection and campaign will launch November 15 in CALL IT SPRING stores across Canada, and online at callitspring.com.
