Alpine Zone: Ski wear reaches new levels of cool @HarpersBazaarUS

Words by Todd Plummer Oct 31, 2019

Who said ski wear can’t make a statement? Leave the bland parkas and unbecoming snow pants behind, and trade them in for pants and coats that feel more couture than casual. After all, we’ve seen sturdy cold weather apparel receive a marvelous makeover in contemporary fashion, so keeping warm while looking chic is an easy feat.

The traditional après ski look, while sophisticated, isn’t necessarily the most daring, so why not live a little bit on the edge with pieces that imbue a bold, more fashion-forward vibe? Case in point: 3 Moncler Grenoble’s new collection of exciting and directional ski wear.

This season, designer Sandro Mandrino elevated the collection to a conceptual level that sat above even the atmospheric by injecting the spirit of 1969 into every single piece. Think: Colors, patterns, and unexpected details perfect for anyone but timid ski bunnies. Only the boldest and most adventurous statement-makers need apply.

A cinched belt, a jumbo collar, lots of fringe—it’s the details that dazzle in this all-white look. Queen of the slopes, and the streets.

Unexpected colors and patterns offer a refreshing take on the classic ski sweater. Break the seasonal sartorial rule with color-blocked florals–because they look just as chic in the winter as they do in the spring.

Balance a statement printed jacket with pants in the same color family. It’s all about being bold, but tasteful.

Bright yellow and electric blue liven up the snow-white slopes.
