Mountains are having an improbable fashion moment. For his "survivalist" fall collection, Alexander Wang showed jagged peaks in neon green and purple, splashed across a very cool-looking anorak. Then came the Peter Pilotto show on Monday -- inspired by extreme sports -- which featured the summit motif, in purples and blues, on dresses and a very cozy-looking puffer coat.

Wang's take is decidedly neo-camping -- a futuristic riff on outdoor wear that reads a little rave-y, while Pilotto's version has more of a soft romanticism to it.

Which of these mountainous looks do you prefer? Or do you think this trend should "take a hike?" Wah wah.
