OVERHEAD AND OUT
By Sam Higgins, 3 January 2017
You’ve probably inhabited your parka by now, content with its ability to keep you cosy and snug. But, stylish relief from the winter chill can come in a lighter form too, thanks to our latest range of overhead jackets.
Marking the spot where streetwear and dadcore collide, the quarter-zip jacket combines the lightweight durability of a waterproof mac, with the casual comfort of a track jacket. Unlike its bulkier outerwear siblings, the 90s-inspired jacket provides layerability on colder days, but can also be left alone as a solid transitional piece to see us through to spring stylishly.
For fans of minimalism, Stussy’s all-black take on the quarter-zip will seamlessly slot into your go-to monochromatic ‘fit. Likewise, Vision Air helps you maintain a neutral palette with its camel, logo-emblazoned jacket, while also offering trend-led detailing through functional pockets and sleeve prints. If it’s more about texture than tone when it comes to your outerwear, this blue, funnel-necked fleece from HUF will serve as a cosy addition to your getup. However, if it’s all about the hues, Reason’s vibrant windbreaker will bring a bold injection of red, yellow and blue while keeping things weather-proof, neat and nautical.
