The Bogner Amiya-Di Coat with fur, is sure to set you far and above the rest whether on top of the mountain or at a dinner table in the lodge filled with friends. Truly a work of couture, this coat is trimmed with raccoon fur. It has a large hood that when unzipped reveals a luxurious leopard print fur lining.

Moncler + Moon Boot 'Venus' Boot Collaboration

Moncler blends its sophisticated craftsmanship with Moon Boot's signature silhouette - it debuted in 1969 and is inspired by the styles the Apollo astronauts wore when they first stepped foot on the moon.

Made from glossy shell and textured-leather, this 'Venus' water-resistant pair is lined in fleece for insulation and embossed with each of the brand's logos. We like how the drawstring top blocks out cold air while the rubber toe cap and gripped sole create traction.

RRP: $774 (US)

  

 


Prada Quilted Shell Coat

Looking for warm and practical outerwear that feels smart and stylish too? Cue Prada's quilted jacket. Made from durable shell that's insulated with down and feathers, this quilted style has slightly cropped sleeves and a pointed collar. We like that it's loose enough to layer without feeling bulky.

A three-axis gimbal ensures smooth video, Lightbridge technology lets you see what it sees and control it within a mile range, the controller uses your own phone to provide deeper controls and video preview, and onboard sensors let you fly safely indoors without a GPS signal.

 


Planning a trip to Chamonix? You need to stay here

Marmotte Mountain Retreat is a charming and traditional ski chalet situated in the village of Argentiere in the Chamonix Valley.  This lovely privately located 4 bedroom catered ski chalet can sleep up to 8 guests.

The location of this chalet is very unique and very special.  Located in National Park Land, the chalet gives the ambience of being tucked away deep in the mountains. However, less than 5 minutes on foot has you into the village centre of Argentiere or to the base of the world famous ski area of les Grands Montets.

Marmotte Mountain Retreat is also perfect for families with younger children.  The large and private chalet grounds provide endless opportunities for children to go exploring, build snowman/snow caves or go tobogganing.

One of the perks we love about it is the luxury outdoor sauna - a perfect way to unwind after a long day on the slopes.

Rolex x Supreme Collaboration On The Horizon

https://youtu.be/jXzHj7vKmbk

 

Jay Prime, Instafamous mastermind known as 'Drops By Jay' is usually pretty spot on with guessing brand predictions. He was the first to drop the rumour to his 278k followers of the bazaar collaboration.

According to Highsnobiety, the upcoming 2018 collaboration will see the arrival of special watches as well as apparel.

Don't get too excited just yet, the price is guessed to be approx US$10,000 – $12,000 a watch and may not be open to the public immediately and customers will be invited to purchase.

If you aren't one of the lucky ones, the 'non-official Rolex' piece is predicted to resell for US$,50,000. Not bad considering it had the words ‘FUCK EM’ stamped in red caps around the centre dial.

 


St Anton, A Place For Dancing On Tables And World Class Snow

St Anton, A Place For Dancing On Tables And World Class Snow

Austria’s Arlberg region offers the perfect balance of great skiing and après culture. There is a reason people love visiting the Austrian Alps and we completely understand why.

St Anton Ski Resort is up there as one of our favourites and we’re not alone.

It is rated among the top five resorts in the Alps for very good reason: it is located in one of Europe’s snowiest areas, so it offers premium, first class powder. It boasts 305km of pistes, 200km of off-piste itineraries and over 55km² of challenging off-piste terrain.

 

In addition, it has one of the best après cultures in the world. Have you seen the people (more often than not someone with celebrity status) dancing on tables at lunch hour? This resort is the place. Trust us, you’ll be up dancing on the table before you know it.

The resort is well-connected and newly opened Flexenpass lift system, which links Stuben to Lech, St Anton and Zürs. Take your pick of the most scenic pistes in the Alps – you will never tire of finding new, exciting runs. The resort has taken a positive stand on crowd control, too. The cap on the amount of visitors using these slopes ensures an altogether more zen-like experience. For those with less skiing time under their belt, some chalets provide drivers to deliver you straight to your instructor on some of the less challenging slopes.

Furthermore, the reason we love St Anton is not just the powder and culture. St Anton packs some serious heritage – it’s the birthplace of the father of modern skiing, Johann Schneider and has been known for years as the après gods thanks to the infamous Mooserwirt and Krazy Kanguruh bars.

London's First Barre Class On Ice

Forget stinky gyms and jam packed reformer classes, Ice Rink Canary Wharf and luxury D&D restaurant, Plateau, announced an exciting collaboration with new UK fitness brand DEFINE.London.

Offering a barre class, on ice.

The event took place over the weekend at Ice Rink Canary Wharf. Former American Broadway actress, Ashley Verma, lead the hour long class with the use of yoga mats (so don't sweat, ice skating skills aren't required!).

This was a one off event but may trigger brands to create something similar.

‘Le Ski’ was created by Emma Hartvig and captured in the mountains of Austria.

To Emma Hartvig, photography is all about the art of seduction. Greatly inspired by cinema, she carefully stages her images, which not so much tell a story as hint at the bigger picture. They are like the opening paragraph of a book or film stills that make you want to watch the whole movie. Based in Berlin, the young Swedish photographer has won numerous international awards and her work has been widely published.

Reboot the Boot. Clarks New Contemporary Take On Sneakers.

NATURE IV. REDESIGNED. REDEFINED. REBORN.

Clarks has long been an often unsung fashion hero - merely a staple - rather fashion piece.

However, this year the brand has recently built a new following with its contemporary take on sneakers.

Clarks is releasing a limited edition Nature V Snow Livery Boot, an updated version of its Nature V shoe and it is very, very chic.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSi0LBqRACw

Clarks’ Nature shoes received their first significant update in almost four decades earlier this year, signaling the brand’s continued evolution and relevance when it comes to fashion-focused footwear.

The Snow Livery Boot, is part of the collection and has an undeniably fashion-forward aesthetic, its overall wearability is universal and its functionality conclusively favors an active lifestyle.

Its practical secrets start beneath the hood with the hand-carved wooden last that provides an ergonomic, asymmetric fit, an anatomically-formed footbed, and a high-density heel cup that maximises responsiveness. The upper protects against snow and rain, utilizing a combination of premium nubuck and wool with rubber wrap and neoprene detailing.

The limited edition Nature V Snow Livery Boot is available to buy online or in store. Find out more via the link below.
