Bagged yourself a puffer coat yet?
If not, what the hell have you been wearing for the last few months?
The puffer coat (aka, a duvet that you can wear) is the official coat of lockdown. Go to your local park, and you’ll see a sea of bubbly silhouettes. People walking in pairs, getting their government-mandated daily exercise in this practical fashion trend – and it’s easy to understand why.
They’re soft, cosy, comforting. A sanctuary against the weather, that can be flung on with just about any outfit.
Bojo’s latest announcement may have been promising. But it seems, social contact will be restricted to the outdoors for a while longer yet. If you fancy a picnic on a bench (let’s face it, who doesn’t want to do that in March?), now is the time to invest in one of these plump protective jackets.
And, here at Tokyo Laundry, we’ve got you covered.
Duvet coats worth getting out of bed for
Embracing the pandemic-fuelled trend, we have a huge selection of men’s and women’s puffer coats for you to choose from. All of which are competitively priced, available for contact-free delivery, and perfect for your new favourite leisure pursuit (i.e. a stroll around the block).
Each coat boasts three crucial features:
1. A bubbled design
This is what makes them so warm and toasty. Essentially, the lightweight bubbles trap heat against the body, creating a cocoon of cosiness and offering protection against the biting winter weather.
Aside from their bubbles, our puffer coats also benefit from a range of other features that are designed to keep you warm. For example, most styles have a zip and placket rather than poppers. Many have knitted ‘storm cuffs’, and benefit from a fur-lined hood and extended collar.
It’s all about trapping warm air in and keeping the cold wind out.
2. A tailored regular fit
When it comes to a duvet coat, getting the right fit is key.
It needs to be big enough to layer over a snugly jumper or hoody, but not too loose that you will start to lose body heat. And all of our styles hit the perfect balance. Each one has been expertly designed and tailored to create a ‘regular’ fit and we recommend choosing your usual size.
But to be on the safe side. Once your new coat arrives, be sure to do the ‘hug test’. Pop it on, zip it up and give yourself a hug. Feel a bit like the hulk? If so, you may need to go for a size up.
Dubbed ‘the harried mum’s coat’, puffer jackets have a bad rep for being all substance over style. But when you shop with us, there’s no need to worry about looking like a ribbed tube of polyester!
All of our men’s and women’s puffer coats are chic, stylish and incredibly on-trend. Traditional horizontal-padded designs are available. But we also have duvet coats with a distinctive zig-zag basketweave pattern, which helps to streamline the silhouette and reduces their bulky appearance.
Styles come in a range of colours, from the bold and bright to the classic and understated, and many feature drawstrings – which allow you to cinch them at the waistline. Simply balance out their chunky design with a pair of skinny jeans or leggings and you’ll be the envy of everyone at the park.
