Gucci Après-Ski: From a Time When Powder Wasn’t Limited to the Slopes

If you liked House of Gucci’s winter wardrobe, then you’re gonna love this. This isn’t an all Gucci drop as parts are a continuation of the great work they’ve done with adidas but this time they’ve left the streets and gone high up into the mountains. 

The latest drop is offering a range of snow-ready outerwear, footwear, and apparel. So we’ve got monogrammed tracksuits, fuzzy boots, big puffers, logo laden luggage, even a few knits. 

Like everything adidas x Gucci have been offering recently, it’s all very retro-inspired. Most of the inspiration looks like it was taken from the era where there was more powder up people’s noses than on the slopes. This is a good thing because the adidas originals designs are the best thing that they do because of their uniquely adidas retro designs. Gucci has been tapping the 70s for a while now as well, so making this collection look like a scene from a bad 80s ski movie isn’t a crazy stretch by any means. 

Alongside the new apparel, Gucci have updated their signature handbag line with new takes on the Horsebit 1955, Diana, and the GG Marmont now in houndstooth knit trimmed with wool. 

Maybe taking some cues from their collaboration with North Face, Gucci have given us four pairs of Gucci x adidas lace-up boots, which, while you probably wouldn’t want to actually take them hiking up some snowy trails, can probably handle whatever you throw at them. 

Gucci Après-Ski will be available in Gucci boutiques as well as their website. Pop-ups will appear in Courmayeur, Cortina, Courchevel, Verbier, and Kitzbühl.
