The winter season is now upon us, and that means all our favourite brands are launching their ready-to-wear ski collections. Because, you know, you need to look sharp while careening down the slopes. And so, Gucci has launched its latest Aprés-Ski collection, which fuses mountain-inspired style with leisure wear featuring Gucci’s famous design codes.
The ready-to-wear collection features ski-inspired sets, bags, log sole boots, ski masks and a host of other accessories. Set inside the collection is a preview of Gucci’s latest collaboration with sportswear brand Adidas – a warmer alternative to the pair’s collaboration from earlier this year.
As part of the collection, Gucci teamed up with Italian luxury luggage maker FPM Milano to create aluminium trolleys – a continuation of the House’s Gucci Valigeria travel concept.
These new styles all highlight the house’s heritage in luxury and travel lifestyle. Ski wear stands out in the collection, including down-filled puffer jackets, padded jacquard trousers and a wool-knit bomber. To ensure that you’re fully protected while gracefully tackling the slopes the brand has also included several retro goggles and round-frame sunglasses in fun colourways, ensuring that you’re not only well protected, but also looking the part.
The lug-soled boots are crafted from black rubber and Gucci’s trademark GG canvas. The boots come in blue and grey, as well as Gucci’s camel and Sonny hues. To ensure you’re protected from the snow, the brand also added in some Padded GG ankle boots. These benefit from a drawstring feature designed to lock in the warmth while keeping the white stuff out. Gucci’s footwear offering is rounded off with the reimagined Adidas x Gucci Gazelle sneaker, available in two colourways and featuring Gucci’s interlocking GG monogram.
Gucci’s Aprés-Ski collection is now available at the brand’s boutiques as well as online. Prices range between $380 to $4,100. Gucci has also brought its sportswear collection to pop-ups in Courmayeur, Cortina, Courchevel, Verbier, and Kitzbühel.
