Premium Japanese ski apparel and lifestyle label Goldwin has teamed up with biomaterials company Spiber Inc. to produce a sustainable ski jacket prototype which is being nominated for the prestigious Beazley's Designs of the Year Award in fashion.

What defines this outerwear piece compared to traditional ski jackets is its material composition. Thanks to Spiber Inc.'s engineered spider silk material which is composed of synthetic protein fiber, the jacket is more environmentally friendly – unlike how other brands manufacture their jackets utilizing petroleum-based products, which consumes large amounts of energy and emits greenhouse gases.

While this ski jacket is still under development, the piece will be on display at the Design Museum in London until January 9, 2019. Winners of the Beazley's Designs of the Year Award will be announced sometime in November.
