Originally founded in Switzerland in 1910, this Italian brand of "chic sportif" is synonymous with elegance and innovation (it was among the first to offer skis when the sport was taking off in the early 20th century). The ready-to-wear collection transfers the craftsmanship and technology of its skis to clothing that's made in Italy and coveted by ski enthusiasts and fashion aficionados alike. Authier's devotion to materials extends right down to the zippers (also made in Italy) and the label, which is stitched by hand. With a slim quilted design, smart removable hood and ultra-warm goose down fill, this jacket looks great—and keeps you warm—both on and off the slopes. Ripstop nylon. Hits at hip. Hood with three snaps at neck. Double-zipper placket. Elastic inside cuffs. Dry clean. Import.
