FIS Alpine Ski World Championships, Schladming 2013: Women’s Slalom, Mikaela Shiffrin Wins!
Yes, there were other women in this slalom race but all I’m really caring about is Mikaela Shiffrin. World Champion. At seventeen. Totally amazing (though not surprising) and completely awesome!

Tools of the Trade
No matter how hammered, nor how much duct tape – I love the character, history and highly personalized nature of broken in gloves/ mitts.

U.S. Women’s Alpine Ski Team Uniforms

It is all about the pink polka dot jackets! The vibrant color has moxie – it is both sweet and bold; the subtle pattern is enough but not too much; the silhouette is cozy and relaxed yet flattering, perfect over speed suits.
The U.S. uniforms appear to have a broad range of garments and looks within the annual kit, and are creatively reimagined year-to-year, not bound to traditional red/ white/ blue Americana. As a designer, I would be interested to learn about the inspiration and athlete input that determines the creative direction, as well as see how all the pieces merchandise into a cohesive uniform system.

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.
