Fogal
High-end image publication:
an expression of tradition and innovation.

Customer
Swiss hosiery fashion chain Fogal, a leading luxury brand in Switzerland, was acquired by Swiss fashion swimwear manufacturer Lahco in 2016.

Customer’s wish
Fogal combines the tradition and know-how of a Swiss brand with innovative power, and wanted high-end communications media to reflect this. They feature sophisticated subjects photographed by Walter Pfeiffer, which have to be produced perfectly in lithographic terms and printed to the highest quality standards.
