a glimpse at new gear: shall we chalet?
posted: November 24, 2012
WHY WE LOVE THISThere is (almost) nothing I love more than a little Après. Play days in the snow and long fun-filled nights? Sign me up! This winter we focused on designing gear that could take us from mountain adventures to fire-side festivities and everything in between. Here’s a behind-the-seams look at a few styles we can’t wait to play and warm up in. Take that cabin fever! JOANNA – Product Editor
1/ St. Moritz Jersey
This long sleeve was engineered using moisture-wicking and lightweight Merino Wool Jersey. This wonder fabric helps to keep us warm when we get cold and helps to cool us down when things heat up (you won’t want to take it off). We added thumbholes to this base layer to help keep wrists warm and make layering easy.
2/ St Moritz Sweater
When the snow starts to fall we can’t wait to get outside (although we do love a good glass of wine and a crackling fire). With that in mind, we designed a sweater we knew would be good for both. Breathable and moisture-wicking Merino Wool joins forces with a soft Sweater Knit fabric to give us the best of both worlds. The raglan sleeves and built-in stretch help to reduce bulk and give us the freedom to make moves (on and off the mountain).
3/ St Moritz Jacket
Soft and fuzzy Fleece, water- and wind-resistant Cire fabric and a double-layer collar make this jacket a triple threat against winter chill (and cabin fever). The extra fuzzy arms feel incredible (they are out-of-this-world soft) and help to keep us cozy on the way to and from yoga.
4/ Chalet Keep Your Neck Cozy
Our chunky knit neckwarmer is made with a blend of organic cotton and rayon derived from bamboo and cashmere (yes – it is as awesome as it sounds). This soft and breathable infinity scarf makes it easy to get wrapped up in warming up. Editor’s note: they had me at chunky knit neckwarmer.
WE LOVE MERINO WOOLMerino Wool is nature’s tech fabric (#shityogissay)! This high quality wool is naturally insulating, moisture-wicking, soft and breathable. The best part? It doesn’t feel itchy thanks to the fine merino wool fibres. It’s perfect for layering and great for those looking for a natural fibre option.
Good things come to those who wait and in this case, it’s for this cozy Après gear. This stuff will be popping up online and in stores over the next few weeks.
Hint: If you’ve fallen as hard as we have for the St Moritz sweater, check back online on Thursday to get your hands on it.
