Lafayette 148 escapes to the Roaring Fork Valley’s snowy slopes and après-ski adventures with the debut of its Aspen 148 collection.
Lafayette 148’s Aspen 148 capsule knit sweater and hat
Lafayette 148 is dreaming of a white winter, and its latest Aspen 148 collection embodies just that. With Creative Director Emily Smith at the helm, the line seamlessly fuses the house’s codes of impeccable construction and luxurious materials together with Aspen’s ultracozy and effortlessly chic uniform to create a showstopping line that’s better described as a work of art. Giving a nod to the town’s extreme altitude and enviable landscape, the brand plays with new textures and tones—picture mountainready Italian shearlings, down-filled ski-inspired jackets, quilted nylon skirts, deep-piled shearling slides and more, all in hues of ice and granite. These pieces, along with the line’s various accessories (from statement ponchos to bonnets and mittens), fit right into the modern women’s carry-on just before jetting off to our snowcapped sanctuary. Smith explains, “Aspen’s rich contemporary arts program and alpine lifestyle makes it an annual congregation for so many of our community over the holiday season. This capsule collection is an homage to that community, and the women who live and vacation there, a sartorial celebration of winter escapism—wherever you are, whatever you’re doing.” Whether you’re off to shred the gnar or simply sit by the fire, the Aspen 148 collection will have you feeling like a local in no time.
