From Swann Galleries:  One of the earliest appearances of the famous Stowe “S,” a logo which Maurer designed and which is still ubiquitously used in the Vermont town through the present day.

Optic Black & White Pucci

This is why I love Stratton:  Emilio Pucci top, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac for Rossignol jacket, serious accessories.

Strafe Outerwear

032710©anapolitano2011x032711©anapolitano2011x032713©anapolitano2011

Strafe outerwear as worn by Mac Bohannon of the US Ski Team.

This outerwear stopped me in my tracks – the clean design and construction of 3-layer hardshell technical fabric, bright red/ blue color combo with white contrast zips, new school fit, and a brand name I had never heard of – it was a powerful introduction to Strafe.

Strafe is a new outerwear company based in Aspen, Colorado – to be precise, Aspen Highlands – which let’s be honest, it doesn’t get much better for a home base.  Twin brothers, John and Pete Gaston founded the company in 2009 to fill a need for technical outerwear specific in function, fit and styling for the backcountry freeskier.  Perhaps no other piece embodies this objective better than Strafe’s signature Sickbird one-piece suit.  With this authenticity and Highland Bowl as testing ground, I’m sold!

Back to Mac.  He is a super-talented (and super-friendly) freestyle aerialist who lives in Lake Placid, New York and trains full-time at the Olympic Training Center.  Aerial competition demands more sleek outerwear but Mac loves Strafe for freeskiing.  Watch him in action at macbohonnon.com.

Intense Orange

This Jiminy Peak ski racer radiated an intense and high-energy spirit – as underscored by her commitment to orange.  The monochromatic look pops thanks to blue accessories.
