the 10


things I rely on all winter

All things fashion meet all things sporty in CLAUDIA LEBENTHAL's recently launched blog and soon to be e-commerce site, SPORTOLOGY. Lebenthal, a magazine creative director and author of Stoked: The Evolution of Action Sports sees Sportology as a playing field where she can dive into both realms—plus design, art, and pop culture. The fit is pretty natural: After all, Lebenthal worked at Condé Nast's now, sadly-shuttered Women's Sports & Fitness, for which she commissioned top fashion photographers to shoot incredible athletes.

Claudia Lebenthal shares the 12 things she relies on all winter.

    NorthFace Women's Super Diez Jacket

    A down jacket is a must for winter and NorthFace has been making great ones for years in lots of styles and colors. I love this short jacket for weekends in super chic silver from the metallic line they've done this year. It's lightweight, really warm and not too bulky. Slim baffle construction keeps the down from shifting to eliminate cold spots throughout the jacket.

    Ray Ban Shooter Sunglasses

    These classic Ray Ban Aviators with their with their yellow photochromic lens are perfect for the flat light of winter, but they also adapt to different light conditions. They turn dark in direct sunlight and clear when indoors.

    Proenza Schouler Intarsia Pullover Sweater

    My biggest obsession with sport and fashion probably came as a skier. I love the après ski feel of this Proenza Schouler pullover.

    Patagonia R3 Hi-Loft Hoody

    R3 Hi-Loft Hoody is Patagonia's warmest fleece and is SO soft! It's perfect as a toasty mid-layer or on its own as a jacket in chilly, dry weather. Polartec Power Stretch panels under the arms and down the sides give this jacket a sleek fit with lots of mobility. The hood is a nice option too.

    Sugoi Subzero Tight

    I love running in the winter and these tights are the best when it's really cold outside. They are high-density fleece lined for thermal protection, water repellent for added protection against the elements, and are lined in critical areas for extra comfort.

    Völkl Kenja Skis

    The Völkl women's freeskiing collection leads the pack in any terrain and all conditions from deep powder to the groomers. There are three great skis in this collection but I like the Kenju best. The shape of its tip and cut of its tail makes for smooth and easy turns regardless of conditions. In softer snow the ski floats and is a joy to ride. Plus the graphics are really hot!

    Kangol Colette Hat

    While a beanie is cute for the weekend, I prefer something a bit more stylish for the week. Unless it's really freezing, I find my ears don't need to be covered, and a cap does the trick. This wool Kangol, with its sporty brim and military style peak, has a great look.

    Go Pro Hero Camera

    GoPro HD cameras are used by more athletes and sports filmmakers than any other camera in the world. Developed for professional use, but available at a consumer price, the HD HERO line shoots full HD video. You can also find a huge selection of mounts for practically any piece of sporting gear, such as your skis, surfboard, handlebars or helmet. I am waiting for ski season to test mine out!

    Smartwool Liner/Glove

    Used as liners, these gloves are designed to wick away moisture and keep hands warm and dry, but are also great on their own as a lightweight winter glove. Made with high-quality merino wool, they also have a special fabric touchscreen capability woven into the fingertips.

    UGG Australia Classic Sparkle Boots

    Sparkly UGGs are pretty cute... especially in black.

    L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

    My hands get really dry in the winter, and this non-greasy hand cream is my favorite. It comes in 1oz tubes in various fragrances and is sold in three packs so you can keep a tube in all your bags and pockets.

    L.L. Bean 100th Anniversary Hunting Shoe

    I think this tall lace up version of the classic LL Bean boots is super stylish and looks great in the country or city.
