Over the past few days models, designers and fashion fanatics from all over the globe have excitedly descended on our capital city for London Fashion Week. In light of this iconic event, and in anticipation of the upcoming ski season, we’ve picked out some of our favourite winter-sports clothing so that you can strut your stuff on slightly whiter and colder runways, otherwise known as the slopes.
“We strive to design clothing that is ergonomically fitting and the lightest possible” – Carl Moriarty, Arc’teryx
Gore-Tex® Gloves from Arc’teryx
Arc´teryx is still the only outdoor company in the world creating fully-taped Gore-Tex® gloves from 3-layer laminates. The advanced Tri-DexTM technology employs complex three-lobed patterns, where each finger is individually patterned and taped to replicate its unique shape and articulation. The result is a true anatomical fit that feels natural at rest and moves effortlessly. You could even say they fit like a glove…

The Jäger Pant offers exceptional versatility – the type of ski pant you can rely on all season long, through winter’s varying conditions. Eider’s proprietary Defender membrane repels moisture while maintaining a high degree of breathability while the stretch face fabric provides freedom to move comfortably. Lightly insulated, the Jägers will keep you nice and snug, while the side vents with mesh lining allow for airflow when needed. Pre-formed knees and a moderately relaxed cut give the option to comfortably layer, and the raised back with soft, light fleece lining provides extra coverage to keep the snow out.
