With temperatures falling to the zero degree Celsius mark, or lower, in December and January, it’s best to wrap up warmly when visiting Austria. From a matching cashmere hat and scarf to skiwear, here are some of the must-have winter warmers of the season.
Tommy Hilfiger x Rossignol
This winter, American designer – and winter-sports fan – Tommy Hilfiger has teamed up with ski specialist Rossignol. The Tommy x Rossignol capsule collection consists of men’s clothing and equipment (from €149) in the fashion brand’s signature colours of red, white and blue. The collaboration combines the fun spirit of Tommy Hilfiger with the technical features that have made Rossignol such a recognised brand, as seen in everything from the sleek padded ski jackets to the high-performance protective helmet.
Escada pullover, €995
This season Escada celebrates the actresses who starred in Alfred Hitchcock’s classic films. Knitwear, outerwear and tailoring are among the must-have styles, which include this cosy roll-neck pullover. Printed suits, tweed jackets and comfortable cashmeres provide winter warmth with the grace and glamour of Hitchcock’s heroines.
Toni Sailer Ethel trousers in black, €599
Skiwear brand Toni Sailer’s autumn/winter 2017/18 collection spans pieces for the city as well as the slopes. Those for women, made of a technical four-way stretch fabric, balance athletic and feminine shapes; key styles include the Rhea jacket, which combines lamb’s leather details and a waterproof finish, and a jumpsuit featuring a new cut. Besides high-performance jackets such as the pictured Tommy style, men should look out for the debut of 40g PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation Active padding as found in the lightweight Francis ski trousers.
