Supermodel Gigi Hadid has just released a new Ski Lodge collection for her knitwear brand, Guest in Residence. The publicity photos show a set of rather retro Reflex ski poles and what's probably one of the few pairs of Salomon SX71 white boots that haven't disintegrated with a distinct 80s vibe.
Fusing performance gear with 100% cashmere, the collection takes cues from winter sports and ski resorts, both of which played an important role in Hadid’s upbringing, spending much of her childhood in Aspen.
Inspired by the aesthetics of ’70s and ’80s traditional skiwear, the collection draws from utility ski silhouettes, reimagining them in luxurious cashmere for the winter season. Designed with durability and versatility in mind, Ski Lodge comprises T-shirts, layering pieces and of course, knitwear. Hadid also created her own fair isle patterns for the collection, experimenting with shapes, graphics and color schemes.
The collection also sees the introduction of the brand’s first-ever cashmere graphic T-shirt, inspired by vintage ski resort posters. Elsewhere, Ski Lodge features contrasting knits, co-ordinates and statement separates. With warmth and coziness at the heart of every single piece, the collection boasts traditional basket weave stitches and hand-whip stitches for the ultimate finishing details.
Ski Lodge follows Hadid’s second capsule collection for the brand, dubbed “Varsity Funk,” which drew inspiration from preppy school aesthetics.
The new Ski Lodge collection is now available for purchase from the Guest in Residence website.
