History of the brand
Parajumpers was born in Italy in 2006, thanks to the cooperation between Ape S.P.A. and designer Massimo Rossetti, who has many years of experience as a designer of outerwear, and also as an importer of American brands for the Italian market. A meeting with a serving member of the 210th Rescue Squadron in an ill-famed bar in Anchorage, Alaska provided inspiration for Massimo Rossetti’s latest creation. The men of the 210th Rescue Squadron are highly trained for extreme rescues and recoveries in the wildest, most remote and hostile corners of the Globe. They are the PJs – short for PARAJUMPERS.
Rossetti decided to pay tribute to the Parajumpers and develop one of the most avant-garde and disruptive outerwear collections inspired by elements of search and rescue. In fact the large removable metal hook found on most Parajumpers jackets, defining the brand’s image, comes from a quick release parachutist hook.
