ALBERTO Collection Winter 2022
#coolgermany: Karwendelbahn Mittenwald
Whether they were hikers, climbers or skiers - the Karwendel with its breathtaking panorama was already a magnet for mountain sports enthusiasts in search of adventure more than 100 years ago. From Mittenwald, they went up into the mountains, loaded with backpacks and boards, exclusively on foot along narrow paths for decades, before the small community made Alpine history in 1967 with the construction of the legendary Karwendelbahn. A place that combines true pioneering spirit with the wild beauty of nature - in other words, an unbeatable backdrop for shooting the ALBERTO Winter 2022 collection.
A few years ago, our good friend and long-time partner, the designer and artist Jochem Reichenberg, gave us a shiny gold trouser sculpture that's brightened up Marco Lanowy's office ever since. As part of our work on the ALBERTO Winter 2022 collection, we've been inspired by this sculpture and present the 'Gold Denim', a 5-pocket coated with gold foil - real jeans art for everyone. The special highlight: the more often the trousers are worn, the more extravagant their patina becomes - and the more precious they become.
ALBERTO has launched a new product group called 'Performance'. From now on, under this banner, we'll be presenting trousers with clever functions and ingenious technical features that help you to get through everyday life even smarter, even better dressed and consequently just that little bit better. We're starting with the 'Barista' and the 'Taylor'.

Barista – Coffee Pants
Why are we experimenting with coffee charcoal and why have we named a pair of trousers 'Barista'? Well, for one thing, we are declared Baristafarians, in other words: we love real coffee culture, and the day just can't start without a cup of coffee prepared from organically grown, carefully roasted, freshly ground beans. On the other hand, we're fascinated by all the different opportunities coffee has to offer as a renewable raw material, even beyond a good caffeine shot. It wasn't a big jump from our passion for coffee to our passion for pants. With its creases, pleats and turn-ups at the leg ends, the bi-elastic 'Barista' is first and foremost a quasi-chino, with a water-repellent finish and a decidedly casual look thanks to the drawstring, ties, special rivets and coffee-brown lining. The real secret of the pants, however, lies in their fibres. In an elaborate process, coffee charcoal particles extracted from coffee bean residues have been incorporated. This technique has huge benefits for the wearer. Coffee charcoal doesn't just store body heat and act as an ideal thermal insulator, it also has antibacterial properties and ensures improved temperature balance. The 'Barista' will be available in black, blue, taupe and military for launch in the 2022 winter season.
Taylor – The new slim chinos
Chinos made of multifunctional techno fabrics? No problem with the 'Taylor', the new addition to the performance segment. The smart, bi-elastic pants with the higher-cut waistband, slanted welt pockets with closing button and the slim silhouette aren't just crease-resistant and really quick-drying. They're also easy to iron and optimally wick moisture away from the body. The new slim chino 'Taylor' is available in black, blue and grey.
Hybrid Sports Pants
Golfing bike enthusiasts with a penchant for hiking can rejoice: ALBERTO has completely revamped its Hybrid Sports Pants range. Featuring high-end fabrics and a multitude of functional features, these pants are now completely sports-only. In addition to the temperature-balancing, comprehensively breathable, bi-elastic and fast-drying 3xDry Cooler and the likewise breathable and also extra-light bi-stretch Revolutional with comprehensive UV protection, Stretch Energy, a highly elastic, water-repellent material is also used here, guaranteeing perfect muscle circulation and improved energy flow with a roughened inner lining. The pants are available as 'Jump', chinos with drawstring and ties, as extra-light 'Trekk' with waterproof zips, cargo pockets and reflective patches on the waistband, and as 'Clay', brand new slim-fit chino-cargo pants. The highlight of the range is the Reflective Pants. We've given the 'Jump' an extensive reflective glass bead coating. Sports sessions after dusk have never been safer.
Put them on, feel good and just look good. This is our guiding principle for developing and producing the pants in ALBERTO's 'Edel Casual' range. Our tools: the highest quality materials, refined cuts, perfect workmanship and unbeatable fit. For the 2022 winter season, we're presenting two new models here alongside the classics. The 'Gene', a wide-cut style with a high waistband, butterfly and back pockets with flaps, comes in military with a tone-on-tone belt and is available in a choice of raw cotton, soft Ceramica flannel and a fine wool look. The 'Clay' is the slim-fit chino-cargo pants that come in a variety of flannel fabrics.
Our ALBERTO jersey pants are self-confident 24/7 all-rounders - and they've got every reason to be so. After all, they don't just combine maximum fit perfection with casual wear comfort, they're also way ahead of the game when it comes to style. For the 2022 winter season, we've focused on a total of eight styles, which we've given both an extensive qualitative state-of-the-art update and a variety of prints. Alongside plain colours, you'll find classic check patterns as well as glen checks and fine knitted designs.
If you thought that the last word on the fashion status of jeans had already been said, the ALBERTO denim range for the 2022 winter season will prove you wrong. In addition to Japan denims in two new washes and a classic Red Selvedge, which comes in two washes and a raw variant - only genuine with the characteristic selvedge, of course - our Organic Denim series continues with jeans made of organic cotton with elastane content in a wide variety of washes. Speaking of organic cotton: Organic cotton mixed with Tencel makes for a wearing experience that's rough and soft at the same time, combining the best of both worlds. If you like things a touch softer, you should definitely go for the No Cotton-Tencel jeans, and if you don't want to miss out on the real denim feeling in the office, we recommend our elegant Dynamic Superfit premium business jeans. ALBERTO jeans are also an unbeatable alternative to the 5-pocket next winter. The styles don't just score points with an authentic vintage colouring and washed 3D buffies, but with an elasticity level of over 60 percent, they also offer unbeatable comfort.
Corduroy is back! For winter 2022, we're celebrating the return of this regal fabric with its wonderfully velvety feel with a range of pants that satisfies every need for detail and style. If you like things a touch softer, you'll love our Fancy Velvet pieces. For winter 22 we're featuring styles with a finely designed honeycomb pattern.
Ready to get in the saddle in autumn and winter? With our chino bike pants, you have absolutely no reason to dread chilly days, as they guarantee not just a high style factor, but also extensive protection against wind and weather thanks to selected tech fabrics and sophisticated features. The super-elastic Dynamic Superfits with Luxury T400 fibres feature a soft feel and a casual look and come in beige, navy, military and a dark grey. A brand-new addition is the Reflective Jersey, a highly elastic style presented as a 'jump', with a highly reflective glass bead coating to minimise the risk of accidents when you're cycling after dusk. Also back: the extra-light 3xDry Cooler in the best-selling 'Bike' and tapered-fit 'Robin' in blue and black, as well as the breathable, water-repellent and quick-drying Revolutional WR, which also boasts UV protection and is available as 'Jump', 'Runner', 'House-BO' and in the new slim-fit cargo model 'Clay' with a drawstring.
Bike jeans are a real hot topic. For the 2022 winter season, ALBERTO is showcasing the entire functional and stylistic range of blue gold. The extra-light, elastic Dynamic Superfit Coolmax Denim with Luxury T400 fibres is breathable, water-repellent and comes as 'Bike' and 'Speed' in a dark rinsed and a blue/black vintage wash. The Dynamic Superfit Dual FX 'Bike' goes one step further when it comes to stretch finesse. Here, high-quality fabrics with a high degree of elasticity meet authentic vintage washes. New Heritage Denim is a particularly elastic and hard-wearing denim made from an organic cotton/tencel mix, which is available in two 80s washes as 'Bike'. With the Dynamic Superfit Bi-Stretch Denim and the Ecorepel Denim we're sending two classics into the race. As 'Speed' in two vintage washes and one rinsed wash, the Dynamic Superfit Bi-Stretch Denim offers maximum freedom of movement with an elasticity level of over 40% with every step on the pedals. Thanks to its surface, which repels dirt and water, the 'Bike' version guarantees a fun ride even in the rain. Braving freezing temperatures? No problem with our ultimate bad weather jeans Rain & Wind Fighter Denim. The windproof, waterproof and breathable surface of these 'bike' pants protects you from precipitation, while the thermal lining keeps you warm. Brand new in the range: the No Cotton Denim. Made entirely from Tencel and recycled polyester, the 'Speed' boasts an extra-soft feel and high durability in a rinsed, vintage and vintage black/black wash. The absolute highlight is the eco denim. Made from organic cotton and recycled polyester, it uses 89 percent less water, 66 percent less chemicals, 18 percent less electricity and 35 percent less heat energy thanks to innovative finishing techniques. The pants are available as 'Speed' in a vintage wash.
