Sloping off in style

Budget not stretching to Fendi or Chanel on the slopes this year (or frankly *any* year)?. Julien Macdonald's collab with Dare2B to the rescue!

Want to look like a supermodel on the slopes, but the fashion budget won’t stretch to Fendi and Prada this year (or frankly, anyyear)? Strike a pose on those parallel turns, lady –  ski supremity can still be yours, courtesy of Julien Macdonald and his activewear collab with Dare 2b.

Launched in September, the collection features sleek pieces that combine fashion, functionality and affordability (*thud*). You can find the full capsule online and in-store at Xscape MK but if you can’t make it there in person, sofa surf with a sneaky peeky below.

Julian Macdonald Skiwear Dare2B white jacket with fur hood

Who says skiwear has to be unflattering? Redefine your figure in this quilted white jacket with waist belt (£280) and matching tight trousers (£100).

The icy graphic pattern and faux-fur hood combo of this jacket (£240) is perfect for going from slopes to chalet.

These cool jumpsuits (£325) scream full-volume glamour, even if they’re not practical for trips to the loo or those likely to faceplant (snow down the cleavage – brrrrrr).

Too off-piste? Carters Reading also hosts a range of more traditional skiwear stockists including Eider, Spyder, Schoffel and Peak Performance.
