SNOW JOB: John Galliano is in a sporty mood. This week in Paris, he unveiled an unexpected project chez Christian Dior: skiwear. Destined to arrive in Dior boutiques by the end of October, the collection includes one-piece suits and ski pants loaded with technical details for a serious schuss. But there are also loads of fashion-oriented styles for après-ski, including miniskirts, cashmere balaclavas, logo-loaded goggles and moon boots trimmed with long-haired fur. And that’s not all that’s keeping the couturier out of trouble.

The suits and dresses are headed to New York’s Hotel Plaza Athénée next week.
