Five Seasons was established in Gothenburg on the Swedish west coast in 1982. A place known for it’s shifting weather and pronounced seasons. Growing up here has made us ready for an array of conditions – wind and sun, snow and ice, and plenty of rain.
Each season brings it’s unique experience and we thrive on exploring every facet of the continuos cycle – living for the moments when we find something new, when we discover something we hadn’t known or experienced before.
Perhaps even discovering a fifth season?.
Our heritage dates back to 1888 when Per Persson launched the leather brand S. P. Persson in Malung, Sweden. Per was an exceptionally talented businessman who managed to transform the leather industry by owning both factories and shops at the most prominent addresses in Stockholm and Gothenburg.
S. P. Persson became an important vendor to the Royal Court of Sweden and one of the largest suppliers of uniforms to the Swedish Armed Forces. It was with
this heritage in mind that Per Persson’s great grandson, Gunnar Johansson,
founded Five Seasons. His vision was to become Europe’s leading supplier of ski
and sports clothing, offering high quality and excellent value clothes Five Seasons remains a family business, that still fosters the heritage of excellence that Per Persson established. Aiming to offer best value for money. Functional and fashionable clothes for all seasons.
Remember that misty spring morning? Or watching the sun set behind those white pearly mountain tops?
