There are a lot of retail phenomena here in Aspen—including the highest-volume Prada Sport retailer in the world! One of the shops we were really excited to check out was the Moncler boutique, the only freestanding Moncler store in the United States.
Moncler is an Italian outerwear company that's probably best known for its high-end puffa jackets—worn by celebs including Pharrell Williams, Victoria Beckham, and Mariah Carey, the popular parkas are priced upwards of $800. The Aspen store stocks hard-to-find Moncler products we've never seen anywhere else—like these weird-but-awesome arm warmers. "Some of the women's coats have shorter sleeves," explained the sales associate. We like the shiny black.
