Après Ski: Cute Boots
The Leland Bootie by Tory Burch. For a non-snow fashion brand, traditional nordic influences and materials have come together in an inspired style that looks at home in the mountains.
Sarah discovered these lovelies at the beginning of winter 2013-2014 and they have been enjoying a full season of après outings. Shown here in the Bear Den Lounge at Burke Mountain, Vermont. Currently, these very boots can be found exploring Sun Valley where they undoubtedly have more like company than in the Northeast Kingdom.
The season is winding down and if you are lucky enough to find your size, you will probably be lucky enough to find them on sale!
The Leland reminds me of boots I came across while shopping Zurich, Switzerland a few years ago and have been dreaming about since. Penelope Chilvers designs the Impossible Boot with a Lapland-inspired upturned toe. . .
. . . and the equally charming Incredible Boot. These boots are as functional as they are stylish with water-repellant pony upper, non-slip rubber soles and super-cozy sheepskin shearling lining.

Shopping Zürich: Freitag
xxxxPhoto: Roland Tännler via Freitag
This never gets old. The Freitag store in Zürich constructed out of 19 freight containers with four floors of merchandise and rooftop access is definitely a shopping experience worth having. There is the efficiency of the architecture. And then there is the marvel of the interior — how Freitag, seemingly unflinchingly, devised an orderly (and visually impactful) system to present each individual piece of merchandise.
Freitag manufactures courier bags, tote bags and small accessories out of reclaimed truck tarps and recycled bicycle inner tubes. No two pieces are alike. Production is in Zürich and has been running since 1993, long before repurposing was a trend. The finished products are rugged beyond any expectation and with their graphic look are icons of contemporary Swiss quality and style.

Shopping Zürich: Alprausch
Alprausch is not to be missed when in Zürich. For the merchandise, the in-store environment and of course, the spirit of the brand – a celebration of Swiss alpine culture! Traditional themes are translated into playful streetwear, technical outerwear and accessories. Graphic design plays an intrinsic role: examples from 2012 and 2013.
xThese scarves – I mean really, how are you supposed to buy just one? (There are many more designs than shown here.) The pom fringe, folky scherenschnitt (papercutting) themes, skiing squirrels – it’s almost too much to process. Needless to say, I left with an assortment.
xShrine to Swiss alpine kitsch.
