Time to get TECHNICAL about this cold!
When it comes to outerwear, then you’ll most often find me in my wool coat. This is just such a stable in my wardrobe. However, with this super intense cold weather that dominating Denmark (and apparently most of Europe) these days then there is very little room for the wool coat. Instead, opting for a technical Parka should be everyones go to! In general, technical outerwear has gotten it self a rather big revival making brands like North Face, Helly Hansen and Peak Performance relevant as ever. People want the modern technicalities and functionality. There is a whole wave of fashion collaborations between high fashion brands and technical and sportswear brands. For example 11 by Boris Bidjan Saberi & Salomon, Junya Watanabe Man & North Face, and Martine Rose & Napapijri just to name a few.
I’ll admit that I personally have been slow on adapting to that technical look – and definitely not fully there, but I think that it can look damn cool. Thats also why I chose to style this parka with a pair of joggers in a very rustic technical fabric from Plain Denim. The designer (of Plain) even described them as being parachute like. For my feet I wore a pair of almost futuristic Dr Martens to kinda go with that chunky vibe.
