If you’re jetting into one of the most prestigious ski resorts in the world, you certainly need to look the part. Think big fur collars, designer sunglasses and cashmere jumpers, skiing in places like Courchevel, Megeve and Zermatt is as much about looking glamorous on the slopes, as it is about the actual skiing – if not more. After all, skiing and the luxury lifestyle have always gone hand in hand.
There are lots of designer ski wear brands to choose from, so here are the need-to-know brands to wear to fit in at these luxurious ski resorts. Read on for my top picks…
