Puffers are not, by any means, a new invention within fashion. It is, however, having a moment! Growing up in the Northwest, it was a staple to have some kind of a puffer vest or jacket. Every person I knew had at least one or was on the other end of the spectrum and had one in every color in every piece. This past Christmas, we gifted my mom with her very own puffer jacket and then I ran into a handful of friends that also had them. What I was doing was setting myself up to make a puffer purchase as well. Sure enough, Aritzia was having a sale on TNA puffers and that was enough of a sign for me.
Having a standard puffer jacket is a good decision for all sorts of reasons. As I’m following fashion month, I’m also starting to notice collections of puffers that appear in unique ways ie) the bottoms of dresses or puffer jackets transforming into other pieces. This post of Pierpaolo Piccioli’s interpretation of them caught my eye. Partnering with brand, Moncler, these puffers are a vision of color and patterns. Naturally, we’re obsessed.
