UP CLOSE: AUTHIER

Authier first hit the scene (and slopes) in 1910 in Bière, Switzerland, as one of the first companies to make wooden skis. One hundred years later, Aspen shop owner Lee Keating and brand creative director Gustavo Sangiorgi relaunched the brand with a collection of luxe outerwear pieces. To understand exactly what their customers needed, Keating went through the closets of her savviest clients, asking what worked, what didn't and what was missing. The answer? Technically advanced skiwear that looks just as cool off the slopes. 


LABEL LOVE 
A little detail with a lot of history: Each jacket comes with a hand-stitched label depicting an iconic Italian ski destination from the sport's golden age, the 1950s. From Cervinia, an Alpine resort in the northwest, to Sestriere, one of the country’s oldest ski resorts, each location represents a different part of Italy's rich ski culture.
