Parka London – AW13 Debut Collection
American designer, Charles Eames, once famously said that “The details are not the details. They make the design.” London based design collective, Parka London, provide us with a début collection which fits Eames’ very description.
Parka have a very conclusive objective: to create traditional pieces which combine originality with a modern, contemporary make up. To ensure each item is dubbed a stand out and forward thinking piece, Parka incorporate inventive detailing such as detachable hoods, luxe linings, secret drawstrings and distinctive silhouettes. The brand holds a concrete belief that it is the innate details and idiosyncrasies that help create an overall strong look.
The brand’s aim is to ensure a passionate love affair exists between you and your coat. It’s effortless style personified; throwing it on, feeling great and having faith in your coat.
The label offers parkas for both women and men. Confidence best describes the male collection, whilst a sense of grace and charm infiltrates the female silhouettes.
Our favourite style here at FashionBeans is the Hearn Wool Parka. The woollen base layer and detachable faux fur hood offers precious insulation and warmth. This truly comfortable looking jacket comes in a sharp navy blue – and like in the photo below, looks sublime when accompanied with a pair beige bottoms.
