Modern Aesthetics Meet Innovative Techniques
OAMC is a brand known for blending modern aesthetics with innovative techniques. The brand’s mission statement is clear about what they value: OAMC is about the present; what is aesthetically pleasing now; what is culturally relevant now; what is technically possible and valid now.
The Bohica Parka is the perfect example of the effectiveness of blending modern day and innovation, taking the traditional parka and incorporating contemporary elements. One element is the stand-out and striking white inner hood covering the rear neck of the jacket, partially concealed by the outer shell. This inner hood is detachable and down filled, helping to provide insulating warmth during the colder months. In order to keep functionality to the piece, this inner hood can be worn without the cover for a striking appearance, removed entirely, or with the navy shell for a contemporary layered appearance.
A necessity for those who appreciate pieces that are unusual and have been designed to be ‘outside of the box’, this parka still incorporates high quality and style into its body. Tailored in Italy, the hardy navy shell is water repellent, making it practical to wear for inclement weather, but it has also been fitted with floral tapestry panels that can be seen below the jacket’s long-line hem, adding texture and colour to the jacket. Buckles to the back of the jacket allow for a customised cinched and tailored appearance, easily adjustable by the wearer for their perfect fit. This buckle detailing can also be found on the back of the hood as decoration.
Last but not least, the tiny details that fully complete the jacket are its snap and two-way zip fastenings, aiding in keeping its wearer dry and insulated. There are also elasticated buttoned cuffs, as well as two front snap-fastening flap pockets that have the multicoloured tapestry trims attached to them.
The OAMC Bohica Parka is available online and in-store now from Aphrodite 1994.
