The Parka: from Artic Pole to Fashion Week

From the Artic Pole to the catwalks of the fashion week, the Parka, made of polar bear and seal fur, has been replaced by more contemporary and colorful fabrics.
From the Inuit to the military of World War II, from the workers of the Meatpacking District of New York to the 60s youngsters, the Parka, through centuries of history, evolving and retaining the valuable function of protecting from the cold; has spread slowly in all countries of the planet, conquering today, the windows of all the shops and the wardrobe of every woman.
The models are many just as brands that have introduced them for the Autumn-Winter 2016/2017. Sportwear, sportchic and urban style; long or short, the parka can be paired with any outfit and look, from the most casual to the most chic, cheeky and luxury. From that light and traditional military green cotton to the padded with sheraling and colored fur for the winter models. This style is perfect for the day and you can wear it instead of the classic and trench coats.
In addition to the military green that is the most popular, the Parka is also available in other color shades, such as olive green, bottle green, moss green, black, navy blue, dark gray and even in color of the moment as the tartan red, mustard, pink and blue sky.

My favorites are the ones stuffed, green or blacks, with colored fur framing the face and protect from cold more biting. If you don’t have this must have yet, have a look at Zara, Bershka, Dorothy Perkins, Burberry, Antonio Marras, Prada and Mr & Mrs Italy stores; or if you prefer to shop on the sofa at home, you will find an infinite number of models on Amazon.
