Bond's Best: Prada Linea Rossa by Oakley Ski Goggles

Prada Oakley Ski Style Bond's Best

Since the early days of the Roaring Twenties, when the popularity of winter sports first came to the fore and travel made bijoux resorts including St Moritz and Gstaad popular with the in-crowd, a trip to the Alps has been seen as a way to cut a dash on the slopes. Thankfully, though, skiwear has come a long way since the early days of tweed jackets and wool slacks. 

Whether you are still learning the ropes at ski school or shredding off-piste on some of the Val d'Isère's more challenging runs, the trick is to pick pieces that toe the line between fashion and function.

With their green mirrored lens, Prada's Linea Rossa special-edition ski goggles by Oakley (£480) are the peak of cool. The wrap-around design features a wide rimless lens designed for superior peripheral vision, while the brand's trademark Prizm technology ensures perfect visibility on sunny or cloudy days. As for the adjustable elastic strap, it is specially designed to fit with Prada's Linea Rossa by Oakley ski helmet and other types of protective headgear.

Furthermore, that après-ski tipple tastes even sweeter for knowing you've smashed it in the fashion stakes earlier. Santé!
