Puff Daddy: These Heavy-Duty Jackets Will Have Your Back When The Going Gets Cold

If you’re travelling to a winter wonderland this holiday season, this is for you.

Who would’ve thought that, two years ago, the good ol’ puffer jacket would become a fashion statement for the style-conscious? In retrospect, how this trend became so widely popular seems like a no-brainer. First off, functionality meets fashion is always a crowd-pleaser: these highly insulated jackets actually keep you toasty in sub-zero temperature, and the seal of approval from a whole stable of designers (read: Balenciaga and Fendi) makes them available in a multitude of colours, styles, shapes and cuts.

And secondly, Moncler. The storied brand and its wide-reaching fashion-forward Genius initiative is a convincing poster child for this stylish armour against the elements to say the least. Need we say more? Our favourites above if you’re hightailing to where the mercury dips.
