Descente is an expert in the field of sports and outdoor clothing. It all started in 1935 when founder Takeo Ishimoto established Ishimoto Shoten, a men's clothing company. Later, the brand began to develop highly functional skiwear before it was officially registered in 1961.
Descente's logo represents basic skiing techniques. By the 1980s, the brand had become one of the industry leaders in skiwear.
In the early 2000s, Descente presented more and more high-tech clothing and the product range grew with each collection.
