Amid a snowy berm and frosted boulders, models-turned-ski-bunnies trotted through fresh powder for Tommy Hilfiger‘s Fall/Winter 2014 presentation. Skiing is a destination sport and travelers seek out the slopes for a bit of respite, but New York City’s miserable freezing temperatures have been inescapable at Fashion Week.

Perhaps that is why Hilfiger’s ski-inspired collection looked so inviting. Sure, his fur-lined parkas, mohair blankets, and technicolor flannels are perfect for vogue-ing your way down the hillside, but they’re also perfect for shuttling to and from the office during a polar vortex. Hilfiger takes the concept of retro ski hats and their old-fashioned yarn-ball tops and transforms the ski accessory classic into flecked wool dresses and zippered cardigans trimmed in fringe. Outerwear is comprised of glossy leather coats featuring shearling trim, puffy bomber jackets, and patchworked suede toppers. He also draws inspiration from Western pearl snaps and elongates them into suede dresses that sport leather yolk details and embroidered flowers. The feel of this collection is Park City meets Park Slope, and a sporty, stylish atmosphere pervades all. Hilfiger, the master of American sportswear, has the ski crowd taking elevators to the top of the MOMA instead of chairlifts to a powdered peak.
