THE DESIGNERS IN THIS SEASON ARE VERY UNANIMOUS: down jacket - a new coat. At the same time, finding a well-tailored version without unnecessary details is much more difficult than any other outerwear. From a semi-athletic wardrobe item, it has turned into a basic thing that is combined with everything, even with a classic office set such as high-heeled shoes, shirts and pipe trousers. The main rule of a down jacket this fall is that the more, the better, so do not be afraid to take it several sizes higher. And if for the winter we would advise you to pay attention to the giant long models, like Stella McCartney (it seems that you can even survive the snowy apocalypse in this), then for the off-season it is better to choose the short version. The ten most worthy are in our selection.
Herno Laminar is the second line of the Herno brand, which ate the dog on high-tech materials and warm jackets. It is being developed under the direct supervision of creative director Errolson Hugh, one of the founders of the Acronym brand, a man of legend in the world of street fashion. The interchangeable hood, inner pockets and material - both warm and lightweight - make this jacket ideal for long walks.
Known for their animal prints and love of vibrant colors, Lazy Oaf has launched a bubblegum-hued puffer jacket. If you do not like to take yourself too seriously, and prefer something that stands out from the crowd to a strict black coat, do not pass by. This jacket can be perfectly combined with simple, basic things - straight jeans and sweaters. Now you can even wear it on a T-shirt: it is dense enough, so you will not freeze.
The secret to the success of this down jacket in metallic colors, one of the trends of the fall / winter season. In such a way, it will definitely not be scary to cross the street in the dark. And although the Spanish mass market only has XS online, we advise you not to despair, but try to search in the nearest Zara - the assortment differs from store to store. You can take such a jacket in size in size, since it already has a voluminous silhouette.

Scandinavian minimalism in action. & other stories rarely produces down jackets: usually the brand is looking for coats first of all. This fall, however, they released just such a cute model, which, if you wish, can be pulled under the chest - you get a more fitted version (although we would just wear it). In the brand's lookbook, the jacket was photographed along with sandals as visual proof that it is easy to wear with everything. A controversial outfit for our weather, but if you suddenly find yourself in a more pleasant climate - why not.
The sleek, quilted, padded Mango jacket with a high neckline is available in classic black and emerald green. The latter is more difficult to combine, but it looks more interesting. It is easy to imagine wearing the Balenciaga collection - with the shoulders down. Let it look showy, but definitely not boring. In this case, do not forget about the turtleneck so that your throat does not blow out, and your mother does not worry.
We have sang an ode to the Uniqlo U collection more than once, to which Christophe Lemaire had a hand. And although a warm blue dress got into our "Wishlist" rubric, it is impossible not to mention the excellent outerwear in the line. Among the models are bombers and elongated jackets, made with attention to detail unusual for the mass market. But what stands out the most is the quilted jacket, which resembles an ordinary quilted jacket, with a neckline and massive buttons. Available in several soft colors.
For the new season, Marques'Almeida released asymmetrical puffy jackets and down jackets with massive collars, which are already hard to buy. For example, the black, less extravagant version has already been disassembled.

If you have no strength to wait for a new high-profile collaboration between H&M and Kenzo and bright animalistic prints for any reason do not suit you, pay attention to the monochrome down jackets of the brand from the usual collection - they are also very worthy.

An expensive down jacket of an advanced Japanese brand, known for its love of layering and functionality, will surely serve you faithfully your whole life. An unusual cut allows you to wear this jacket with all kinds of skirts and dresses: then it is better to choose a platform or rough shoes as shoes. The same model in blue and white looks no less impressive.
Another jacket for lovers of pastel colors. Despite all the modern details, there is a sixties mood and retrofuturism in it. She will look most interesting with matching clothes: vinyl skirts, white ankle boots and graphic accessories. We are also impressed by a small pocket on the sleeve, where, for example, you can put a player.
