Alberta Ferretti x Eco-Age jumper £390,

Alberta Ferretti has teamed up with the eco-warriers at Eco-Age to create a line of sustainably made knitwear made from 100 per cent wool, spun using renewable energy, and GRS-certified recycled cashmere created in Prato, Italy.

Completo skis with custom design, £960,

Channel the coolest ski trend of 2020, night-skiing, with Folsom's Completo model, built for speed and agility.

Dr Barbara Sturm sundrops, £110,

Protect your skin from harmful rays by adding Dr Barbara Sturm's drops to your regular moisturiser.

Burton snowboard, £120,

Burton's snowboards are made with bio-based materials using techniques that reduce the board's carbon footprint by over 50%.

Alpine Cooking by Meredith Erickson, £30,

Meredith Erickson's guide to Europe's alpine kitchens is filled with recipes for comfort food and stories from the mountains.

Napapijri jumper, £299,

The only way to wear Fair Isle this winter is with Napapijri's slogan sweatshirt.

Cubitts Emerton with Transition Lenses,

If you want eye protection that's stylish off the slopes, crucial for après-ski, there’s only one option: get a pair of frames with Transitions Light Intelligent lenses. Upgrading your glasses with Transitions lenses you won’t need to worry about swapping from specs to sunnies. And best of all, they lighten and darken in a matter of seconds. We like Cubitts' frames, which are all handmade in England and can be suitably specced (sorry) to your eye needs. 

Acne beanie, £130,

Acne's beanie has a pilled finish and a luxurious wool/cashmere blend.

Globe Trotter suitcase, £2,535,

Globe Trotter's hard-wearing luggage now comes in amethyst, including the Deluxe trolley case.

Hemisphere goggles, £110,

For serious slalom skiiers, look to the pros for the best eyewear; we like Zeal's blue colourway with 65% VLT.
