Combining soft cashmere-merino blend and a traditional graphic treatment, this piece represents the pure romance of ski racing from both the past and present.

THE STORY

Initially a form of recreation reserved for men, ski racing racing’s romance and elegance came into clear view in 1931 during the first unofficial FIS World Alpine Championships and then again in 1948 during the V Winter Olympics in St. Moritz, Switzerland. 1931 marked Esme MacKinnon’s British victories in the downhill and slalom, the first for any woman and a resounding transformation of a sport finally graced and refined by female precision, style, and aplomb. Seventeen years later, inspired by MacKinnon, women compete in their first downhill and slalom events of the ’48 Winter Olympics and names such as Hedy Schlunegger of Switzerland and Gretchen Fraser of the United States would be awarded the first gold medals in the Downhill and Slalom, events respectively.

Comfortable and protective, with elements of properly knitted fiber construction and a rich yarn complexion, Alps & Meters’ Ski Race Knit conveys a story of alpine sports’ first racing personalities, their passion for skiing, and their highly fashionable taste on and off the mountain.

Combining softly blend yarns, total comfort, and traditional personality, this alpine sportswear garment commands a first class expression representing the pure romance of ski racing from both the past and present.
