This week Donna Ida launched luxury ski wear brand ‘Perfect Moment’ exclusively in the UK. Perfect Moment bridges the gap between practical and stylish ski wear; where function meets fashion and practicality meets style. With a splash of colour and unique designs the clothing range encapsulates the brand’s ethos; ‘Born in Chamonix, with a Freeride State of Mind’.
