The psychedelic one-piece ski suit, Mt Buller

snow blind

According to our woman on the piste, Lorraine Lock - who is embedded in the Australian Alps for the season - the buzz on the slopes is the return of the one-piece ski suit. Documented here in an eye-popping psychedelic print, the suit is teamed with a studded white belt and a black helmet. Although apparently not compulsory anywhere in Australia, helmets are promoted by the Australian Ski Areas Association - and of course to avoid any Natasha Richardson-type scenarios. Très chic but frockwriter can't help wondering..... isn't it awfully cold peeling all that off to take a pee at 1700 metres? Check out Lock's Snow Blind blog for daily updates.
