As much as we want to deny it, parka weather is steadily creeping closer and closer. Which means that your city’s streets are soon to be crowded in a monotonous sea of lookalike outerwear. Seriously, people, why are y’all wearing the same winter jacket?
Wings + Horns is looking to change that. The Vancouver label’s latest collaboration is an understated down parka designed with the Japanese brand Descente ALLTERRAIN, and manufactured at the latter brand’s Mizusawa Factory in Iwate Prefecture, Japan. The slate grey shell is notable both for its minimalist design and signature construction with no exposed stitching. This contributes to the parka’s clean aesthetic, while also providing a durable and waterproof barrier to combat snow and rain.
Taped seams, elasticized cuffs and and hem, and a removable hood are other key construction details that make this parka winter-proof, ensuring you’ll survive whatever the season throws at you. Plus, it’s an extra comfort knowing that you won’t look like everything other coat-clad Canadian out there when the snow starts to fall.
