66°NORTH Hits Sundance
66°NORTH partners with the Sundance Channel for their exclusive VIP party at the annual Sundance Film Festival, Tuesday January 24th, 2006. 66°NORTH went beyond the snowy mountain-tops of Park City, Utah with its Kaldi Arctic hat keeping producers, directors, screen-writers and celebrities warm at this year’s festival. This classic American event was a showcase that merged cinema and style.
66°NORTH was a mainstay among many at the winter wonderland including hot couple Vanessa Carlton and Third Eye Blind front man Stephen Jenkins and “It” girl du jour, Scarlett Johansson who sported 66°NORTH’s Lady’s Down Parka in Burnt Sienna. Julia Stiles, in town for her latest film, “A Little Trip To Heaven” wore 66°NORTH'S Vik Women’s Jacket. Stiles was introduced to the brand while filming in Iceland and fell in love it.
