Style Advisor: The Best Ski Gear

Style Advisor: The Best Ski Gear

Okay, so when we say gear, we mean hyper-cool, pleasingly masculine and ultimately aesthetically on-point ski gear. This is stuff to look good in as you hit the slopes with whatever (lack of) athletic ability you have. After the indulgences of Christmas, there are few remedies better for an expanding beer belly than a week of bracing alpine air and near-death experiences on a mountainside. Whether you’re a freestyle pro or you’re faking it ‘til you make it (the classic all-the-gear and no-idea scenario), it’s worth investing in a proper piece of kit to preen in on the lifts, at après, and most importantly, on the slopes.

RETRO STYLE

For those with a penchant for retro apparel and a talent on snow, Moncler’s printed Arcy St Mori down jacket is perfect for schussing down a beautifully manicured piste. Team with cool and functional accessories – as at home at the après party as it is on the mountain.

TECHNICAL EXPERT

The Canadian designers over at Dsquared2 know a thing or two (excuse us) about skiing kit. Canada has some of the most extreme ski conditions out there, so the brand’s hooded ski parka is longer length for extra protection, made in a technical fabric and padded with goose down. One for the carvers and heli-ski pros among us.

FORM AND FUNCTION

A storied Alpine heritage and an urban aesthetic appeal make Moncler a winner for those who like their slope-side demi pêche as much as they like their off-piste powder. Combining form and function, this red down jacket will make your park pics that much more Insta-worthy and keep you insanely warm. Peak.
