During the early-to-mid 1900s, skiing leapt forward from a method of mountain travel with militaristic origins to a novel means of recreation, generating an aura of exclusivity, glamor and fashion that appealed to the royalty, nobility, and celebrities of the times. Participation from highly visibility individuals of significant wealth, fame, and political stature gave rise to skiing's association with modern celebrity culture.
The Ski Race Knit Monarch aims to revive this luxurious and complexion of classic skiwear which catered to alpine sport’s first female athletes and princesses alike. Woven from a blend of cashmere and merino yarns, the Ski Race Knit Monarch delivers a combination of warmth and sophistication. Emblazoned with a crest of Winter Royalty, Alps & Meters’ Ski Race Knit Monarch conveys a story of alpine sports’ first celebrity personalities, their passion for skiing, and their highly fashionable taste on and off the mountain.
