This winter it seems like the entire fashion world is hearkening back to trends from decades long gone. Bogner, creator of the classic Mod snow-bunny suit, is no different. With designs that include retro Op art graphics, the return of the classic pilot jumpsuit and corded ribbon trimming, the sportswear company is paying homage to those fashion statements that started it all. With modern upgrades like waterproof Techno-Stretch twill jackets and ultralight layering, Bogner’s winter collection includes men’s and women’s jackets, pants, suits, goggles and helmets. Hit the slopes of Aspen decked out in their snow styles and you won’t fail to impress. Gorsuch, 419 E. Cooper Ave., 970-925-7576
Any self-respecting Rolling Stones fan would turn down the opportunity to hear them in person. Well now you can have that experience—from the comfort of your own home. Peter Lyngdorf, a leader in digital amplification and audio breakthroughs, collaborated with Steinway & Sons, renowned as the world’s finest craftsmen of pianos, to create Steinway Lyngdorf in 2005. The joint effort’s first product, the Steinway & Sons Model D Music System, is the first fully digital, integrated music system of its kind. The ultimate home-theater system, it takes eight weeks for the company to hand-assemble each one, and its patent-pending RoomPerfect technology adapts the music system to the listening space, ensuring a uniform tonal balance throughout your room. The showroom at Paragon Technology Group, based right here in Aspen, is glad to show off the Model D for interested buyers. It’ll set you back about $188,0000, but believe us when we say it—you’ll think Mick Jagger is standing right in front of you. Paragon Showroom, 601 Rio Grande Pl., 970-920-3167
From Snow to Shining Sea
If you’ve had your fill of skiing, hill hopping and being a snow bunny, Punta Mita might be the perfect place for your next big vacation. A gated community and resort destination located on the Pacific coast of Mexico, it’s surrounded on three sides by nearly 10 miles of coastline. Take a break from touring the rainforest, surfing, whale-watching and swimming with dolphins—just a sampling of activities offered by the resort—to relax poolside or get pampered in the Four Seasons’ spa (if you’re a guest there, of course). With two Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses, horseback riding, Jeep safaris and some of the most beautiful beaches on the planet to round out this dream vacation, it’s easy to see why Robb Report called it “the best resort in the world.” puntamita.com
