This full ski ensemble—complete with cap and boots—was sold by the fashionable department store, Saks Fifth Avenue. It represents the polished but practical look of much of 1930s skiwear. The exterior of this ski ensemble is rendered in navy, whereas the jacket is lined in a witty, multicolor print of animals and plants. The simple, classic navy blue suit is brightened by the addition of brightly colored red accessories.
