Flex on your friends at après-ski with the Prada & Aspenx capsule collection
After a long day of crisp pow pow carving on the slopes, there is nothing quite like heading back to the ski chalet for a drink or three, to discuss the day’s events with your friends. As you’re leaning on the table, cocktail in hand, and explaining your mediocre exploits for the day, there’s a way to catch up on your terrible snowboarding skills: a new fit. This season Prada has made the right outfits easy, teaming up with the Aspenx team in a collection that promises top performance on the ski slopes, whatever you look like.
The collection comprises a trio of styles, cut respectively for men and women, and includes two technical jackets and a lighter jersey. The two jackets, called the Extreme-Tex Jacket and the Extreme-Tex Ski, are made from a three-layer fabric that provides both warmth and waterproofness, which is exactly what you need when you’re going for a run.
Prada is responsible for the designs of the clothing trio, working with artist Paula Crown on the printed crisscross black and white pattern found throughout the collection. It wouldn’t be Prada without the brand’s signature red logo stripe, which is presented here as a nod to the sporty Linea Rossa line.

“We are delighted to reveal our partnership with Prada as an integral part of ASPENX’s inaugural line of premium offerings for the 2021/2022 ski season,” Crown said of the collaboration.
“More than a fashion collection, this collaboration is a physical representation of Aspen’s unique spirit just ahead of the destination’s 75th anniversary. Designed for unfettered exploration, the capsule complements ASPENX’s founding vision of new possibilities, and I am more than delighted to be working with a house as revered as Prada on this momentous occasion.
Not only does the collaboration look good and keep you warm and dry, it’s also produced in a sustainable way. Prada was recently the first major fashion house to sign a five-year ‘green’ loan, which means the jackets are made from sustainable recycled materials.
The collection is currently available through Aspenx with prices ranging from $ 1,950 to $ 5,400. So if you’ve been planning a ski holiday over the Christmas holidays, make sure you look great on the way down the mountain.
