Après-ski fashion

Après-ski is about more than just skiing. It’s the whole atmosphere surrounding it. It’s a lifestyle. Courchevel, Megève, Val d’Isère, Chamonix, Méribel... The finest ski resorts in France are open and their streets are flooded with stylish, elegant people flashing their freshest après-ski threads. A good excuse to go shopping for new winterly essentials, and look sharp after hitting the slopes.

The Fusalp coat

William Flannel jacket and Françoise Chinchilla coat by Fusalp.

Fusalp makes sure that skiers and après-ski holidaymakers alike are shielded from the deep cold. The Françoise Chinchilla coat and the Gezi parka, made of rich, luxurious wool cloth, are both chic and casual. The coat is made of water-repellent wool and provides warmth without weighing you down. The waist is cinched with a dark belt for an elegant silhouette. The large removable synthetic fur collar makes it into a truly sophisticated piece. For a sportier look, the sleeves can also be removed, turning the coat into an ultra-trendy long puffy vest. The Gezi parka is a Fusalp best-seller: its windproof qualities add to its effortless look in low temperatures. In keeping with the sporty chic spirit, the William Flannel jacket in Sorona synthetic down can be worn under a heavier jacket, a coat, or during a mild spell.
