Ski Fashion Through Time
From neutral colours and natural fibres in the 1920s and 30s to the bold and synthetic designs of the 80s and 90s.
These days, skiwear is as much about fashion as it is about keeping ourselves warm and dry on the slopes. From the beginnings of the sport in the early 1900’s skiers have worn just about every fabric, design and colour in pursuit of the highly technical and protective gear we wear today.
Oxford Ski have put together this fun infographic on how ski fashion has evolved and includes some fascinating facts about the development of the ski industry.
Rupert Longsdon, Founder and CEO of Oxford Ski comments:
“From our research into skiing fashion, it was fascinating to see how the designs have changed and developed over the last 100 years. From neutral colours and natural fibres in the 1920s and 30s to the bold and synthetic designs of the 80s and 90s.”
“Our look into ski fashion also shone a light on the decades where skiing became more accessible and popular as a past time for many people around the world, as the outerwear became popular not only on the slopes but on the streets of towns and cities, and something of a statement by those wearing it.”
