As the leaves begin to change and locals wake to colder mornings, Aspen shifts gear from mountain biking and hiking to powder days and après ski activities. As for fall fashion, Aspenites are eyeing the newest ski fashion trends. After attending this year’s Snowports Industries of America annual trade show, we can personally attest that this winter’s fun, and functional, skiwear won’t disappoint. Trends include brilliant pops of color and patterns, faux-fur accents, and the return of the one-piece ski suit.
Swiss skiwear producer Mountain Force is known for self-developed fabrics, particularly the 12-way-stretch, which incorporates a stretchy outer material, padding, and insulation. The elegant men’s and women’s Rider Jacket (PICTURED) is a premium example of form meets function. The high tech look speaks to men, while women can sport it sans fur or with dyed natural fur at the collar or hood.
Moncler is another Aspen favorite. Brilliant green is on trend, seen throughout the line in a variety of hues. Drawing inspiration from alpine forests, the Grenoble 2013-14 skiwear collection for men and women also marries precision and performance, incorporating braided fleece, laminated wool fabrics with a sensual sixties vibe, wind flaps, and waxed zips.
