I know that Summer is only just beginning but it’s my least favorite season. I love going to the beach, picnics in the park and all of the outdoor events including rooftop soirees but it gets so hot, humid and hazy in NYC that it’s sometimes unbearable. It’s so muggy that it makes me physically sick at times and I limit my outdoor activity to early morning before it gets too bad and after the sun goes down. My favorite season is actually Fall with Winter right behind it as I love the fashion. Although the wintry weather in NYC can be harsh if you layer correctly and wear the right coat you’ll be fine. SNOWMAN New York makes picking the right coat easy and will have you looking fashion forward yet warm without looking like a well… snowman. No pun intended.
SNOWMAN New York is a luxury outerwear company featuring high quality down pieces in high fashion silhouettes. The 42 Collection for FW14 was inspired by NYC attitude and the energy, creativity and uniqueness of the heart of midtown, 42nd St. The collection consists of down outerwear ranging from everyday pieces that will go with everything, to high fashion pieces that are more fashionable than functional. I was invited to SNOWMAN’s showroom to get an up close and personal view of the collection and loved it. It’s like a mix of North Face meets Moncler with a modern day trendy twist.
Let’s start with the Limited Edition Trooper Jacket benifiting LIVESTRONG. SNOWMAN benefiting LIVESTRONG is a project in conjunction with the 42 Collection pre-sales. In an effort to connect with and support the community 5% of the sale of each Trooper Jacket pre-sold from the 42 collection will benefit the LIVESTRONG Foundation. LIVESTRONG works to identify the issues faced by cancer survivors to improve the quality of life for members of the global cancer community.

Limited Edition Trooper Jacket
I wasn’t able to get into the sample pieces with all of these hips so Asia from SNOWMAN was kind enough to model some pieces for me to show you guys. Thank you so much Asia. The highlight of the 42 Collection are the corset pieces and there are three coats with corset detailing, one is the Queen coat…

Copper Caramel B
This cropped short sleeve jacket is just too cute. All of SNOWMAN’s pieces are designed to be super lightweight yet warm and figure flattering to keep you fashionable. No big and bulky down coats over here making you look shapeless and dowdy. Visit SNOWMAN New York for a peek at the rest of the 42 Collection. Available for purchase this Fall exclusively at The New York Look, Atmosphere, 3NY, The Shop at Equinox NYC and snowmannewyork.com.
