Here’s a look at some of the season’s best.

French fashion house Hermès is offering a ski collection for women that features waterproof anti-UV ski jackets, cashmere knits, and mink-lined collars, as well as printed silk neck scarves (US$720/RM2,284), sublimely fitted white canvas ski pants with waterproof leather trim (US$2,450), and a down jacket (US$4,475).

As you’d expect, the collection includes plenty of attention to detail, such as waterproof zips, built-in key holders, and thermal insulation. 

Designer labels Fendi, Pucci, and Armani also regularly turn out high-style ski gear, yet some of the most coveted jackets come from Bogner, M Miller, and Stella McCartney, who has made designer skiwear accessible with her partnership with Adidas.

Porsche Design Sport also recently unveiled its winter 2013 collection showpiece: the Tech Down Jacket, filled with feather and down and good to go from slopes to streets. The jacket also features smart high-performance features such as integrated gloves, a detachable snow guard, and two hoods, one detachable and filled with PrimaLoft thermal insulation.

Look to the brand’s Grenoble collection, which comes fully equipped with technical details, such as snow shirts, inner pockets for sunglasses and phones, and wrist warmers with thumb loops.

Japanese brand White Mountaineering and Moncler’s “Moncler W” have also just unveiled a men’s collection of cold weather garb, including quilted down outwear, all-weather pants, and an array of ski-ready accessories, such as hats and gloves. — AFP-Relaxnews
