3|| Shoreditch Ski Club
With sustainability at the heart of what they do, Shoreditch Ski Club has carved a niche for itself as a totally cool and luxurious, globally-friendly brand. Their puffer jackets (what they refer to as Puffa) are made from either partly or 100% recycled fibres, and the filling is made of 100% recycled plastic bottles! How awesome is that!
4|| The Frankie Shop
Not a brand often associated with outwear, The Frankie Shop has a pretty spectacular selection of outer jackets are great a great price point. They have a particularly strong fashion edge, with oversizing and unique silhouettes as their main offering, as with their overall signature style. We’re loving this, just make sure you can pull it off. Word of advice, they are already oversized so stick to your true size.
Need something a little less fashion-conscious, look no further than Oslo-based Holzweiler. This brand has jackets that are beautifully cut yet understated in their fashion flair which may suit some of us better. Their commitment to sustainability also makes them a good choice.
6|| Yves Salmon
Yes you may know Yves Salmon as the fur company, but they have come a very long way in the past decade, churning out fantastic styles that are both luxurious and on-trend. Keeping in mind the world’s distaste for fur in general Yves Salmon has chosen to incorporate more modern materials into their designs making them a great choice for those in search of a little vavavoom in the outerwear department.
