Heavy Jackets – The Edit
It doesn’t seem like more than a week ago that we were writing about all things summery: festivals, holidays, sunglasses. But here we are, with winter fully upon us, bringing with it shorter days, icy winds and all kinds of weather to tackle. Fortunately, whether rain, snow or shine, we’re here to get you kitted out for the season with a well-curated selection of jackets and coats to last you through this winter and well beyond.
A truly iconic piece from The North Face’s archives, the Nupste 1992 jacket takes inspiration from the original, while upgrading the fabrics and fit to more modern standards. Crafted from a lightweight nylon shell with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish fashioned into classic large baffles, and generously filled with cosy goose down to combat the cold in style. Various zip pockets keep your essentials safe and secure, while the whole look is finished with the iconic retro Dome logo patch to the left sleeve.
Pullover jackets are having a moment right now, and for good reason: they’re perfect for layering for that retro outdoor sportswear look, as well as being designed to keep your core warmer than front-fastening styles. Napapijri’s Skidoo jacket lays claim to be the first ever jacket designed in this way, and is a staple of the brand’s outerwear range. The shell is water-repellent while the body is both lined with fleece and padded with Thermore filling for the ultimate in winter-proof apparel.
Designed for serious outdoor use, yet with off-duty good looks, the Fitz Roy parka utilises Pertex Quantum fabrics throughout, which are lightweight, durable and water resistant, as well as letting the 800-fill goose down filling loft properly to maximise its warmth retention. So whether you’re scaling peaks on a weekend or schlepping between home and the pub on a night, this is one jacket that will never let you down in either the style or performance departments.
Of course, the above is just a small selection of our jackets and coats. Find these and many more instore and online at Aphrodite Clothing today.
