Forged Performance

With a point of origin related to the proper and fashionable knitwear of skiing’s Winter Royalty of the early 20th century, the Women’s Ski Race Knit Monarch a classic piece of winter wear with form fitting characteristics and a beautifully crafted Forged Performance material complexion.

Combining softly blend cashmere and merino yarns, total comfort, and traditional personality, this alpine sportswear garment commands a first class expression representing the pure romance of skiing’s fashion culture the past and present.

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.

Beautiful and soft

The colors and cut of this sweater are very flattering. The knit is so soft. I do worry about it being dry clean only, but was willing to take a chance.

Soft Gorgeous SKI Sweater

I will wear this skiing. I lived in Aspen for 20 years. I love this sweater. And it isn’t itchy. So so pretty. I’m sure I will get asked where I bought it. Runs true to size. I am 5’ 7.5” and I bought a small. Only thing to make it better is 100% Cashmere at top quality at same price.
