Dior unveils new Ski Collection When you can, you have to ski in style

The controversy on the ski resorts that are still closed in Italy, the appeal of Alberto Tomba and the many mountain enthusiasts forced to stay away from the snow that has already been on the most sought-after peaks for a while. The consequences of the last legislative decree are clear, but something could change with the next government decree. Going skiing has always been an opportunity to show your style; The brands that every year launch "Ski collections" are well aware of this to have fun in the snow without forgetting luxury and fashion. Dior relied on its menswear creative director Kim Jones to create the new collection, with the usual elegance and indisputable sobriety.

The ski kit signed by the French maison consists of a pair of skis, a helmet, poles and a snowboard, all items made in navy blue. In the creation of this capsule, Dior is not alone, quite the opposite. He chose to deal with design, but involved first-rate specialists for the choice of technical materials: Descente's consultancy came from Japan for the creation of eco-friendly nylon down jackets with ethically sourced feathers, waterproof, ultralight and insulating jackets; for skis and protective goggles come the Swiss from Ak Ski and the Swedes from Poc.

A ventilation system is applied to each of the outerwear items to regulate the temperature of the back and arms. The trousers also offer an aerodynamic cut that guarantees flexibility and comfort, ideal for skiing and snowboarding. Speaking of snowboards, the flagship item of the collection is the navy blue snowboard, with the Dior monograms repeated along a single wood and carbon alloy board. Monogram replaced by "Dior" writing on the helmet, made by Poc like the glasses, the Clarity lenses and the goggles.

If you are traveling around New York, Dior has opened the first pop-up store dedicated only to the Ski Collection in the SoHo district.
