Style Spotlight – SWIX Winter 2020/21

By: Victoria Capone & Sofia Gallo. KB Fashion Productions

SWIX is no stranger to functional, multi-season apparel. Founded in 1946, SWIX produces apparel and gear that lead in performance while training, in addition to offering a stylish edge. Designed for year-round use, the SWIX consumer can expect longevity and quality in their purchase, making them look good on and off the mountains.

SWIX pulled out all the stops when curating this season’s collection. The Surmount Down Jacket serves as a common ground among experts and novices alike. The unisex outerlayer provides extreme warmth and weather protection for whatever the outdoors have in store, with versatility and functionality making the outdoors more accessible to those who are averse to trying Nordic sports. Subtle aspects like the insulated hand warming pockets and a chill-bridge neck seam comfort the wearer. Other key items would be the Surmount Primaloft Jacket, RaceX Body long sleeve, and Focus NT training top—streamlined and light, these garments can be worn over and over again for any and every outdoor activity.
