Bundled up is the new black, with fashion looking to winter sports for inspiration

The Globe and Mail

For her Miu Miu fall 2021 fashion show, Miuccia Prada took her models to the Dolomite Mountains where they stomped through the deep snow in quilted coats, furry mitts and colourful knit caps. The alpine collection was just the latest example of high-fashion houses looking to winter sports for inspiration. Ever since luxury skiwear label Moncler began collaborating with designers including Simone Rocha and Valentino’s Pier Paolo Piccioli on its fantastical Genius offshoot, runways have been bombarded with a blizzard of over-the-top cold-weather attire. This season’s highlighter puffers, statement sweaters and utilitarian footwear suggest we are nowhere near done with romanticizing the cold. For the foreseeable future, bundled up is the new black.
