parkas and puffers


While technicolor fur and over-the-top statement coats took over the streets (and catwalks) of New York last week, in London, where fashion week is now in full swing, it's all about rain-ready utilitarian parkas and puffers. This type of outerwear is not only English weather-suitable, but also ideal for our imminent spring showers. My recent (and prescient!) purchase of this moto-inspired stylish Patagonia puffer has enabled me to go from the Sierra ski slopes to soggy school runs in style. Other spot-on options include this Red Valentino (70% off), this Madewell, this J.Crew, this Moncler, this Gap, this Joe Fresh, and this Acne Studios (20% off).

Who makes the coat on the first photo? It seems to combine the opposites - a combination of military with cozy. Would love to know who makes it. Thank you.

Olga, I hear you on that jacket--it is amazing. I tried to track down its provenance yesterday to no avail, but will let you know if I find out who makes it.
