Travel Diary Inspired By Travel: Haus Alkire Escape to Verbier

The design duo behind Haus Alkire have combined their unique backgrounds and style sensibilities to create one of the most exciting fashion brands coming out of New York today. The founders of Spoon magazine, Julie and Jason Alkire moved beyond publishing to start their own retail brand where design meets storytelling, knowing style from the inside out. The partners-in-fashion soon caught the eyes of editors at Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, and reside as part of the prestigious CFDA {Fashion Incubator} class. Always crafting new ideas, explore the diary of the pair as they set off on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to W Verbier in Switzerland, photographed by The Coveteur, to explore the sights and sounds in a bid for new inspiration.

Explore

Verbier, Switzerland offers an Alpine adventure all year round, from pristine white ski slopes to summer hikes in the mountains. Julie and Jason hit the hills by bike, then flew to the clouds for incredible views of the country’s epic landscape.
