‘As the weather cools and moves towards winter, adidas by Stella McCartney presents its Winter Sports collection, comprising of ski, snowboard and après ski looks for FW12, as well as outdoor fitness pieces specially designed for workouts in cold weather. The Winter Sports collection is focused around streamlined separates that protect from the chill without compromising on style.
Designed with differing ski and board preferences in mind, the collection features pieces that are adaptable to a variety of cold weather scenarios. Performance fabrics can be layered for varying levels of warmth and protection. High tech fabric using CLIMAWARM® and CLIMAPROOF STORM® for insulation and comfort sit alongside warm fleece and woollen inserts for sleek, hardworking apparel that shields the elements in style.
Comprised of monochrome lines with contrasting citrus pops and smoky photographic prints, the Winter Sports collection plays on a colour scheme that brings effortless cool to the great outdoors. Bright tangerine accents such as the Light Ski Jacket in Bolt Red are teamed with classic black separates such as the scuba-inspired Ski Performance Pant, whereas the Ski Slim Pant in Continental Grey can be paired effortlessly with the Ski Hooded Fleece in Black or Cobalt Blue.
Stella McCartney says: ‘I love the winter sports collection! I think we are one of the few collaborations out there of this kind in the ski world that is really doing something that looks sexier and a bit more fashionable. We are working hard each season to have slightly more body conscious pieces that are for the downhill slalom look and then we have slightly looser pieces for the snowboarder type’…’
