Aspen Fashion Week 2012

When we arrived in Aspen earlier this week for the 4th annual Aspen Fashion Week, we were greeted with bluebird skies, a fleet of Bentleys and a selection of some of the most directional skiwear in the market. Aspen is known for its luxe lifestyle and unique après ski scene, so it is the ideal location to showcase a range of slope-friendly brands including Authier, Kjus, Marmot, Neve, Pajar and Roots, as well as some unexpected lifestyle additions like Isaora, adding an element of edge to the presentations. To spice things up, this year the shows officially kicked off with a Bentley-branded parachute dropping onto the runway in true over-the-top Aspen fashion.
