The specialty of this Italian snow-wear brand is luxe puffer jackets, but you’ll find all sorts of cold-weather toppers, from knee-length styles and vests to coats with fur-trimmed hoods, at the brand’s second U.S. storefront (the first is appropriately in Aspen, Colorado). The price tags may make your heart skip a beat, but you’re paying not only for form, but also high-performance function: Items like a wool quilted jacket ($1,500) or a flashier metallic version ($1,275) feature extra-warm goose-down feathers and water-resistant finishes. Those with major cash to burn can plunk some down on a luxe mohair and organza jacket ($5,775) from Moncler’s Gamme Rouge line, a collaboration with designer Giambattista Valli. More utilitarian types will appreciate the Grenoble collection, which blends city wear with slope wear and includes a sleeker, less bulky men’s coat ($1,690).
