Après skiwear season is here. If you don't believe us, just ask Gucci, Adidas, Supreme and Spyder, who all released collections ready for the slopes this week.
‘Tis the season for après skiwear. As 2022 comes to a close, and everyone begins to predict the landscape of fashion for 2023, it seems the biggest brands in street, sports and luxury wear are placing their bets on snow-ready garments. Back in 2019, Moncler hit the slopes with their own ready-to-wear ski collection and ever since, fashion has had a growing interest in the sport. Earlier this week, Gucci and Adidas went off-piste, embracing chalet-core clothes and accessories as Supreme struck out with American snow sports brand Spyder.
Rounding off a hectic 2022, which saw Tremaine Emory join as the brand’s creative director, Supreme announced their FW22 capsule with Spyder on Tuesday. Showcasing a range of co-branded apparel and accessories, the collection revamps skiwear with modern, street aesthetics. The comfort-focused pieces, which comprise cozy fleece tracksuits, tees and balaclavas, feature both Supreme and Spyder’s classic sports logos. Releasing on December 22, via Supreme’s website, for anyone hitting the slopes but wanting to stay street over Christmas, this collaboration is for you.
First joining forces in June this year, Gucci and Adidas’ creative partnership has become one of high-fashion’s great success stories. For this capsule, the brands look to yuppie styling and bring their retro vision to fruition. From three-stripe ski goggles to fur-lined marmont bags, AdiGucci is ending the year how they strongly started. Juxtaposing a pastel and neon colour scheme across puffa jackets, cardigans and jumpers, festive greens and reds feature on the accessories.
