Smith Optics Introduce Smart Ski Goggles Through Rental Program

SMITH SKIS SMART: Snowboarders and skiers bound for Ski amadé resorts can measure their speed and check the latest slope conditions thanks to new smart ski goggles from Smith Optics.
With the help of Evolaris, an app has been developed to help winter enthusiasts navigate the 760 trails at what is Austria’s largest skiing resource. Ski amadé has five ski resorts stretching across 25 villages which visitors traverse with the help of 270 lifts. By activating the smart ski goggles, athletes will see live data in the lower right-hand corner of their goggles that can direct them to their preferred mountain lodges, lifts, fun parks or restaurants. They can also keep an eye on speed, trail conditions and weather forecasts.
Visitors can rent the Smith I/O Recon at all 25 Intersport shops in Ski amadé for 19 euros a day. The goggles also indicate the distance and directions to destinations at the various resorts. There are plans to allow visitors to test the technologically advanced eyewear at demo events in the months ahead.
The mini-computer with the integrated WLAN connection and Recon-developed GPS can be integrated into various makes of ski goggles. The data from the “Ski amadé Guide” app is displayed on

A Man’s World: Mr Porter Set to Introduce Mr P

LONDON — There’s a new man at Mr Porter known as Mr P, a collection of essentials and trend-led seasonal pieces designed, sourced, manufactured and distributed exclusively by the men’s fashion site.
The collection will launch on Nov. 7 and offer more than 50 pieces, a mix of wardrobe building blocks and five themed capsule collections that are meant to complement — rather than compete with — the site’s 400-plus brands.
In an exclusive interview, Mr Porter’s managing director Toby Bateman said the Mr P product has been engineered to work as an overarching wardrobe.
“Men’s brands tend to either be casual or formal or technical, but the reality is that men don’t necessarily dress head-to-toe in one particular way. We wanted to create a brand that in one aesthetic could bring casual, smart and technical together. Creatively, this is what we’re trying to achieve.”
Essentials, including a white T-shirt, 15-gauge cashmere knitwear and water-resistant travel blazers, will be carried year-round, while the first capsule will be based around Lucian Freud and his arty London friends from the Fifties.
The capsule collections will drop every few months, and the Lucian Freud-themed one features a Breton long-sleeve T-shirt for 95 pounds, a black doubled-breasted corduroy jacket

La Perla to Create In-House Academy, Introduce Welfare Program

Italian luxury underwear label La Perla will open an in-house academy and introduce a series of benefits aimed at developing the business and enhancing the value of its employees. These initiatives have been included in the renovated company agreement inked with the trade unions on Dec. 22 at the firm’s headquarters in Bologna, Italy.
Called “Academy La Perla,” the permanent professional training program will be launched starting in 2017 to increase the business’ know-how, as well as integrate a new generation of workers in the firm. The training program will provide them with the technical knowledge requested for several jobs, such as designing, prototyping and tailoring. Agreements with local schools will further accelerate the recruitment process while the know-how will be transmitted to the young generation by senior employees, who will also be offered reductions of work time once closer to retirement age.
As part of the new work contract, a health-care policy, which will cost La Perla a maximum sum of 250 euros, or $ 261 at current exchange, for each worker, will be introduced March 1.
Also starting next year, a monetary bonus is expected to be established as a prize for each employee. If La Perla’s net sales reach the break-even point, each worker will receive 1,000 euros, or $ 1,045, as reward. The sum can reach a maximum of
