Seven Luxury Puffers For Winter

Yes, luxury puffers. Time to get involved and feel the warmth.

By Terry Christodoulou 07/07/2020

There was a point the puffer was synonymous with alpine trekkers, lumberjacks, a certain Michelin Man and another named Costanza.

Well, that day has passed, this once-maligned piece now a firm winter staple.

Here, seven refined options – ensuring lightweight warmth without the frump.

Brunello Cucinelli – Corduroy Padded Jacket

This Italian master has used corduroy’s resurgence to full effect. Here, a velvet cotton corduroy forms the exterior of a goose down padded jacket. The rich burnt brown colourway is the perfect tone for the colder climes and Cucinelli’s use of the finest natural fabrics ensures maximum comfort all season.

Moncler Genius x Craig Green – Coolidge Colour-Block Quilted Shell Hooded Down Jacket

Moncler has come to own the elevated puffer jacket – its ‘Genius’ collaboration with technical outerwear maestro Craig Green taking things even further with this Coolidge jacket. The colour-blocked, lightweight shell is filled with goose down while the detachable collar and drawstring hood allows adjustment for both comfort and coverage.

Approx. $2260; mrporter.com

Prada – Quilted Shell Hooded Down Jacket

Mean and green, Prada’s quilted jacket is designed with a boxy profile and filled with goose down. Making use of the house’s technical nylon shell, the jacket takes a modern, militant stance against frosty weather. Elasticated internal cuffs and a drawstring at the bottom help further fight the cold.

Approx. $2665; mrporter.com

Burberry – Detachable Sleeve Monogram Print Puffer Jacket

This British take on the puffer sees an adaptable hooded silhouette filled with goose down and feathers. The shell, which is covered in the house’s monogram print, is made from polyamide, while the press-stud, concealed two-way zip closure, drawcord hood and hem keep warmth locked in. As a bonus, if it gets too hot, just unzip and detach the sleeves to transition into a gilet. Nice.

$1880; Burberry.com

Gucci – Black & Beige Down Mini G Rhombus Coat

This long line coat is a goose down filled, quilted and coated silk and wool blend jacket featuring Gucci’s mini ‘G’ pattern in brown and beige. The bungee style drawstring, press stud placket, zip closure and detachable hood work to keep you insulated, while the inset rib knit cuffs and full quilted satin lining (in black) further complement the luxe details.

Louis Vuitton – Monogram Boyhood Puffer Leather Gilet

Seven Puffer Jackets

While not strictly a jacket, this unique gilet replaces the usual padded rolls with LV’s iconic monogrammed pattern embossed into the soft calfskin leather shell. Inside, the Italian made piece is filled with down and with a high collar that takes advice from Wu-Tang Clan and protects the neck.

$10,600; louisvuitton.com

 

Thom Browne – Four-Bar Quilted Down Jacket

This piece proves padded can still cut a slimline silhouette. Featuring TB’s four white stripes across the left arm, the jacket is inspired by military uniforms, the quilted shell also boasting signature tricolour lining and is filled with 80 per cent down and 20 per cent feathers.
