Finding the perfect winter coat is no easy task. Not only does it need to protect you from the elements, but it also needs to be functional, comfortable and, of course, stylish. Material, quilting, filling and details such as pockets, hoods and drawstrings are all aspects to consider when looking for one.
And while there’s no such thing as the perfect winter jacket, it’s safe to say that any Moncler design is about as close as you’re going to get. Here, we’ve picked five styles – including one from the brand’s 70th anniversary collection – that are guaranteed to keep you toasty this winter.
The archival down jacket
To celebrate its 70th anniversary, Moncler has rereleased its archival Maya jacket in a variety of different colourways. This green style caught our eye from many different reasons, from the detachable hood to the insulating down filling and array of practical pockets.
The colour-block quilted gilet
Need an extra layer, but still too warm for a proper jacket? Try a gilet instead. Ideal for the trans-seasonal months and uncertain weather alike, this colour-block style has the same down filling and practical details of the brand’s expertly made outerwear, minus the bulk.
The statement design
If your outerwear game is on the brighter side of things, you’ll appreciate this Verdon style. It’s designed in a slightly oversized profile (its thick lining, however, is intended for a close internal fit) and made from nylon-ripstop that’s coated for a subtle sheen.
The hooded gilet
Moncler’s Lawu gilet may not be the smartest choice for staying low-key, but we can guarantee its shiny, royal-blue colourway will catch attention for all the right reasons. It’s made from sturdy nylon-ripstop and fitted with an oversized hood that resembles the one on the brand’s iconic puffers.
The timeless jacket
If you’re after something that’ll stand the test of trends and time, don’t mind if we recommend Moncler’s Mayaf jacket. It’s designed in the brand’s instantly recognisable, signature boxy silhouette and fitted with faux-fur trims along the hood to make it that bit warmer.
