GIORGETTI NAGANO SKIS No ski vacation is complete without a pair of killer skis. The surface finish of these luxurious skis is in “abonos“, fossil oak sourced from rivers, and is very durable. The wood is treated with varnishes and oils that ensure that the skis last for years and years. The core, built entirely from poplar and birch, is covered with layers of bamboo and composite fibres. Completing the structure are metal layers and rubber inserts to enhance performance and reduce vibration. The bases are of the highest quality to ensure the least amount of drag over all types of snow surface. All the materials are fixed using a slow process at low temperatures to create a unique skiing experience. The skis come complete with bindings and mounting plate, adjustable to suit all users, and telescopic poles in aluminium. Plan a family trip to Aspen or the Alps to break in these elegant, tasteful, and understated skis. Price upon request, available at giorgetti.com

Retro avant garde were the keywords for this particular pair of sunglasses.
