During the early-to-mid 1900s, skiing leapt forward from a method of mountain travel with militaristic origins to a novel means of recreation, generating an aura of exclusivity, glamor and fashion that appealed to the royalty, nobility, and celebrities of the times. Participation from highly visibility individuals of significant wealth, fame, and political stature gave rise to skiing's association with modern celebrity culture.

The Ski Race Knit Monarch aims to revive this luxurious and complexion of classic skiwear which catered to alpine sport’s first female athletes and princesses alike. Woven from a blend of cashmere and merino yarns, the Ski Race Knit Monarch delivers a combination of warmth and sophistication. Emblazoned with a crest of Winter Royalty, Alps & Meters’ Ski Race Knit Monarch conveys a story of alpine sports’ first celebrity personalities, their passion for skiing, and their highly fashionable taste on and off the mountain.

Designed by Tradition

As skiing evolved into the mid 20th century, ski slopes double as highly photographed fashion runways in which images and reports of royalty and celebrity ski trips were circulated widely among the press and paparazzi from New York, Paris, and London. Determined to adhere to the fashion protocols of the day and unwilling to compromise on high-class style, traditional skiwear came into its own as a unique category of clothing that was as appropriate off-piste as it was on-piste.

Perfect!

I love this sweater. It fits like a dream, is super soft and very flattering. I hummed and hawed about buying it for months, now I regret not having bought it earlier in the winter so I could have spent more time wearing it!
