Laurenne Ross, ready to Shred.
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.
Julia Mancuso wins on the Kandahar! Anna Fenninger of Austria, second; Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein, third.
These Völkl women’s pants are both pretty and kind of badass. The engineered kimono-inspired patterns raise the bar for graphic patterned outerwear and share the same cherry blossom theme as the Kiku women’s ski.

I am always interested in the design of team uniforms – these U.S. Freestyle Ski Team kits are by Under Armour – but equally captivated by how individual style transcends standard issue gear.
Seriously, how rad is this coach! Her day on the hill involves wielding power tools, lugging gates and fencing, working with athletes – all while skiing. And despite having a radio, Gerber knife and holster strapped to her — she still managed to accessorize and put together a personalized and inspired ensemble.
Also of note from this event, I watched wunderkind Mikaela Shiffrin win the Slalom – I now call her “Magic Girl”. It is going to be very fun to watch her career. . .
