Alps & Meters – The Women’s Collection

Alps & Meters’ new womenswear collection takes its cue from the classic vintage style that made so many sirens melt the slopes.

Brigitte Bardot at Saint Moritz. Grace Kelly in Gstaad. Queen Elizabeth at Mürren. These are the iconic women who inspire Alps & Meters’ new Winter Royalty Collection, available now to shop on The Rake.

Taking their cue from the early-20th century’s international jet-set - during the peak of glamorous European High Society - the collection reimagines the flattering cuts and retro motifs that were (and continue to be) the height of style in some of the most sophisticated Winter resorts. The selection includes a series of jackets, anoraks, knitwear, wool trousers, and wool hats; which Alps & Meters hope will ‘revive the high-class feminine division of alpine knits and outwear’. Since its inception in 2014, the brand has been devoted to capturing the culture and nostalgia of Europe’s great ski villages. But it isn’t just style over substance. Each piece is constructed of natural fibres, merino wools and cashmeres; ensuring the wearer stand out like a swan amongst the sea (or slope) of fluorescent Gore-Tex.
