Après Ski Goes Tech with DKNY’s Latest Capsule Collection Highsnobiety
As fall foliage begins to wither away and the frigid frost fills the atmosphere signaling the turn of seasons, DKNY makes a chilling discovery. Venturing into uncharted territory with the release of an inaugural ski capsule collection, it’s safe to say winter just got a few degrees cooler.
Revamping the age-old après ski aesthetic, the tried-and-true New York powerhouse melds iconic ski silhouettes and their emblematic effortless edge with modern day tech—debuting 30 distinct pieces spanning outerwear, body-contouring ski suits, snow boots and elevated eyewear—perfectly fit for styling on the slopes or streets.
Showcasing the duality of DKNY, the collection offers a mix of muted and neutral color palettes set against classic staples like oversized puffers in icy glacial white and black ski overalls with flared legs accented by silver hardware detailing. Juxtaposing those understated elements of the capsule, exuberant futuristic prints inspired by northern lights come to life through a masterful implementation across standout pieces. From print-covered belted puffer vests and coordinated sets of ‘cold gear’ quarter-zip long-sleeves with matching tights, to playful puffer scarves—when sporting DKNY’s first foray into skiwear, it’ll be a cold day in hell before you blend in.

An ambitious exploration of what the future of skiwear will look like, the TECH SKI capsule collection doubles down on setting new trends by bridging the gap between luxury and sustainability in the realm of skiwear—incorporating the use of recycled fill for the internal fabrication of each puffer jacket.
Released just in time to make your holiday wish list, the limited-edition capsule collection will be available online globally at
