Sunday from my desk





Yesterday Milan Fashion Week started. As designing sportswear now

has become more and more driven by the engineering of the fabrics

and equipment, it is not easy to create items of beauty

and function but true fashion will always really require both

–  understanding the materials, whether organic or synthetic,

and how they function in a design. Bringing forward fresh ideas

whether for the runway, the slopes, or the ice rink is really

what keeps it all interesting. One of the most elegant sportsmen

of all time  was Leo Gasperl… ”the angel of the snow”. He was the best model

 for ski fashion and was always a good reminder of elegance…
