Ski/ Snowsport Jacket Design Concepts

My latest design concepts are some of my ski/snowsport themed fabric designs as ski jackets.

As I was heading to Slide & Outdoor Trade Show 2023 I completed mock-ups to be able show how I see the designs being used.

I first created a jacket design with features that I feel are important. I focused on a women’s jacket design with stretchy waist sections, expandable pockets, a removable inside of collar so that can be washed. I also of course included a lift pass pocket, and added a sunglasses pocket, and a large hidden pocket for the hollow of the back where goggles, a hat or a book could be carried.

Read on for more features of the jackets. I’ve chosen three of my 20+ ski and snowsport themed designs – ski goggle reflections, ski snow flakes and ski states.

Once I had created the jacket design I placed my fabric design onto it and added light and shade to demonstrate form. I created the mock-ups in my favourite creative app Procreate, with my iPad and Apple Pencil.

Here are the designs…

For comfort the design has underarm zipped vents. Stretchy cuffs ensure there is no gap between jacket and glove, and the hood is large enough to fit over a helmet for those cold, blowy days.

Reflective details are a safety element of the design concept. The contrasting hood interiors are bright and could be reversible to make them extra visible in low light or white out conditions, making them easier to follow or spot on the mountain.

I took a print out of the designs to Slide & OTS 2023 to show to ski industry contacts.

These jacket mock ups complement the earlier base layer, mid layer, neck wear and shirt designs. See those on these posts.

Ski/ Snowsport Mid and Base Layer Designs

Some of my 20+ Snowsport Themed Designs

Following on from the neck gator/buff designs that I shared in the previous post I’ve created mid and base layer mock-ups using my surface pattern designs. I’m keen to talk to skiwear companies about licensing and collaboration.

Here they are…

Mid Layer Design Mock-ups

I’ve created these mock-ups op mid layer tops. The designs could be applied to stretchy technical fabrics or lightweight fleece.

These would have a small collar, and quarter zips for comfort and ventilation. They would be a good length to not be riding up and leaving a gap between trousers and top. The underarm panel could be a thinner mesh fabric for added comfort.

These mid layer designs are intended to be worn over base layers., My design concepts/ideas for base layers follow.

Base Layer Design Mock-ups

To show how my fabric designs can work as ski/snowsportbase layers I’ve created these mock-ups.

Ideally the base layer designs would have thumb holes for use on colder days for cosines, to help close up gaps between clothing where the cold can get in.

The kegs could be in two length options, full length legs and 3/4 length for those who prefer to keep base layers out of boots.

Comfortable, stretchy fabrics with some compression to benefit performance, and quality which wicks moisture away from the skin and reduces odour. So ideally they would feel good in terms of both comfort, have joy promoting motifs, smell good and look good.

Base layers can last for years and can have use for other mountain, outdoor and cold weather activities.

These are just a few mock-ups. With over 20 designs in my collection there are options which are great for adults and children.

Do you create skiwear/accessories?

If you are a skiwear or snowsports company then please get in touch. I’m keen to explore collaboration and licensing opportunities, please email me at inspirebykim@outlook.com

Designs can be exclusive for your products or a territory or market. The designs can incorporate your logo or brand.

Gold Medal Winning Skiers In Queen’s Birthday Honours List

Gold medal winners Neil Simpson and Andrew Simpson (Banchory, Kincardineshire), receive MBEs for services to skiing in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

On a recent trip to Scotland my parents were delighted to meet Neil and Andrew Simpson, gold medal winners in Super-G (Super Giant Slalom) at the Paralympics in 2022.

It was a lovely surprise when Mum sent me these photos. Mutual ski friends introduced my Mum and Dad to the Simpson brothers. Mum showed Neil and Andrew Ski A to Z, and they signed Mum’s copy of the book.

Congratulations Neil and Andrew on the gold medals in Beijing and receiving honours in such a special landmark year – you’re an inspiring team.

Here are Neil and Andrew’s profiles on GB Snowsport.

Scotland is part of the skiing foundation of Ski A to Z and skiing there helped make me a hardy skier. Our parents often took my brother and I to race in Scotland when we were young, both on snow at Glen Shee and Aviemore, and the awesome dry slope at Hillend, Edinburgh. I also trained in Austria with the Dolphin Ski Club. I hope to get up to Scotland to ski in Scotland this coming winter and to meet more skiers to share Ski A to Z with.
