Military-style coats are still in fashion, but adapted to the latest trends. Since parkas first appeared as military clothing, the fact that they are comfortable and warm has meant they have become popular in civilian wardrobes, reaching iconic status amongst young Brits riding around on their Vespa scooters. There are designer women's parkas which include fur-lined hoods that give a touch of colour and a new style to this garment that was originally menswear. Parkas are made from cotton or polyester, resulting in a very hard-wearing garment. Although the classic colour is still khaki, we also have models in dark colours such as blue and black as well as delicate, lighter colours. Designer women's parkas from brands such as Mr & Mrs Italy, Army Fur and Canada Goose will keep you warm in even the coldest temperatures, hard-wearing garments that follow the latest catwalk trends.
