We’re used to seeing him dress Hollywood stars on the red carpet, chic fashion editors and tailored street starlets, but who knew Giorgio Armani and his team offered pieces this good for professional athletes as well?
Still, given the growth in fashion-forward snow gear in recent years and continued reign of the sports luxe trend, it’s perfect timing for Emporio Armani’s latest EA7 Ski Collection to have been unveiled in high voltage style.
Launched 14 years ago, the EA7 Emporio Armani line of sportswear combines highly technical fabrications with the design house’s signature aesthetic. The result: polished pieces that are as functional as they are flattering and appropriate for both pro athletes and weekend warriors.
Just as there are a number of micro-collections under the EA7 fitness wear banner – like Performance activewear, Sport Fashion for savvy exercises and Urban Activewear for street and studio workouts – so too does the new snow buffet fall into three distinct areas.

SKI STYLE is for fashion-conscious skiers who want pieces that look sensational on and off-piste (think, anoraks, sweatshirts and oversized sweaters under your snow gear).
Similarly, SKI RACE is exactly as the name suggests: classic on-snow pieces that are warm, comfortable and functional. The SKI RIDE line, however, is perfect for young adrenaline seekers who want high-tech outfits on-snow that are eye-catching and cool. You’ll never lose your friends on the mountain again when you’re wearing a blazing acid yellow two-piece.
The EA7 Emporio Armani AW18 activewear and ski collections for men, women and children are available now from the Armani website and select David Jones stores.
