The Cult Parka Fashion Girls Dream About

Rihanna, Kate Moss, Olivia Palermo, Arizona Muse, Anna Dello Russo, Cara Delevingne, Garance Doré… the list of women who favour the extremely snuggly outerwear of cult parka label Mr & Mrs Italy reads like a who’s who in every fashion circle imaginable. The fur- and shearling-lined styles whisper of super-luxury but never feel OTT. It’s the high-low mix of an ultra-casual, throw-it-on U.S. Army silhouette (when establishing the brand in 2007 genuine military surplus gear was used as a starting point) combined with handcrafted finishes, quality fabrics and, well, the eye-catching interiors. The price-tag, of course, reflects such souped-up craftsmanship, putting these designer pieces into the highest echelons of fashion society.

MatchesFashion.com, Harrods, MyTheresa and Net-a-Porter have all jumped onto this train, and now the brand is branching out into a bespoke service online and further styles are coming (look out for trench coats and bombers for S/S 16).
