Down time

We’re warm­ing to the lat­est in­su­lated win­ter jack­ets

Wallpaper - - Newspaper -

Comethe win­ter chill, we’re down with the un­ri­valled toasti­ness of the in­su­lated feather-filled jacket. Moncler is, of course, syn­ony­mous with more so­phis­ti­cated vari­ants of the form and it con­tin­ues to up­date its clas­sic Greno­ble jacket, re­duc­ing the puff for a lighter feel and slim­mer sil­hou­ette with­out sac­ri­fic­ing warmth. Al­ways at the cut­ting edge of fab­ric in­no­va­tion, Stone Is­land’s ul­tra­light leather jacket packs its finest down into a ny­lon tech­ni­cal mesh, while all seams are heat-sealed. Its down-filled David-tc parka, mean­while, is gar­ment dyed at 130ºc to of­fer what Stone Is­land calls a ‘unique tac­tile ex­pe­ri­ence’.

Wa­ter­proof­ing down jack­ets is some­thing of a trick, but Parajumpers’ Musher parka, built in a matte-finish, lam­i­nated ny­lon, mi­cro-ot­toman fab­ric, can take a 10,000mm del­uge be­fore its de­fences are breached. Mean­while, the wa­ter-re­pel­lent waxed cotton Stu­dio Parka by Christo­pher Rae­burn at Victorinox can be warmed up in three ways, de­pend­ing on which of the snap-in (and stand-alone) mo­du­lar lin­ing sys­tem pieces you choose to add.
