Burke is a ski racing hill. Lucky for me, I love all that goes along with that – including ski racing fashion. Spyder Julia Mancuso race suit featuring trail map graphics of Squaw Valley, her home mountain.

I instantly fell for this fantastic tri-color skirt worn by Julia Mancuso after her runs in Schladming. The Swedish brand Houdini is responsible for this skirt named Sleepwalker. It is perfect to throw on over a speed suit — or more pedestrian garments such as base layer or ski pants.
By far, this is my favorite of the insulated skirts I have seen – the relaxed silhouette looks extra cozy and the styling is the hippest with a little more sass than all the others. Speaking of sass, Julia is never short on style and effortlessly owned this look.
Over the past several years, nearly everything I have found inspiring — and appealing to buy and wear myself – has been of Swedish design: Peak Performance, Hestra, Dr. Zipe and now Houdini. I like what I see and am excited to have a new apparel brand to follow. The Sleepwalker skirt is sold out this season – but will be on the top of my list next winter!
What I love about this image: the ease in their freeride style; the confidence of tomboy style; simple, clean and bold color blocking of jackets and pants; complementary color play between the two; Peak Performance; and the fact that they are obviously good friends and totally excited to ski!
