You don’t need a chalet and deep powder to pick up on the coming season’s latest vibe: ski culture is hot. And it’s not just design houses with a legitimate Alpine background, such as Moncler, referencing the slopes; Z Zegna and Mackage are also in on the act. You could say it’s a way of embracing winter.
Harry Rosen and Mackage collaborated on the design of this exclusive hooded vest. In a down-filled matte nylon, it’s perfect for fall or spring rather than mid-winter, layered over a chunky knit. Mackage always has fun with leather – in this case, as trim and piping on the zipper.
Moncler’s familiar red, white and blue trim inspires the crewneck sweater’s red-and-navy-speckled yarn. It also appears on the placket of this intriguing tri-fabric, down-filled winter bomber. The grey panels are flannel wool, the navy shoulders use woollen twill and the white patches on the arms are cotton canvas. Moncler Gamme Bleu jacket, knit, shirt, and pants available in store only.
Who has more right than Moncler to have fun with the ski motif? The company began on the slopes of the French Alps. This down-filled nylon bomber sports a navy-and-white print of skiers in action.
Take a look at the novelty motif on that chili red, pure wool, crewneck sweater – a cartoon pom-pom toque and ski goggles. Z Zegna also makes a sweatshirt version. Pair either one with merino jogging pants and a quilted, down-filled vest.
