Welcome back to another season of Ski Style and Winter Fashion!
I decided I would start writing again as soon as it started snowing here in Verbier. I'm a bit late as two weekends ago my boyfriend and his friends went skiing. I've attached a photo below if you don't believe me. I also have to apologise for my lack of updates towards the end of last season but I was offered an impromptu trip to the Caribbean to visit my sister and I couldn't bring myself to write about skiing in 30 degree heat and surrounded my mosquitos.

So - What are the new trends this season?
I'm going to start with high fashion today (apologies to those who care more about the waterproofness and durability!)
This season dump the excessive amounts of fur and embrace slim fitting, vintage style ski wear. This season Hermes has lead the way by launching a stunning collection of technical ski wear and accessories all inspired by Hermes long history with skiing; the company has been designing ski wear since the 1930s. The line is full of tans, mustards, and whites and features a lot of tight fitting leather. All harking back to the glory days when skiing was first discovered. The collection is understated yet exciting; the ski fashion world has needed a new lease of life for a while; and now it has it.
This season it's all about multi-use. Clothing that can be worn both on and off the slopes.
Moncler’s new collection of ski fleeces wouldn't look out of place in London’s chicest nightspots. Pack beautifully designed under layers and you won't need to change your outfit between skiing and après. To save space also invest in a ski jacket that won't look out of place as you head out for the evening . Lacroix have some beautiful jackets that can be worn both day and night.
If you would like me to write any specific posts or if you have any questions I would love to hear from you.
Bring on the snow!
