Winter may not be the best season but in Japan, the fashionable and chic take this opportunity to show off the latest in fashion. Japanese fashion has always made headlines due to its uniqueness. This winter, however, one of the most fashionable items in a person’s wardrobe was surprisingly functional as well.
We’re talking about the down jacket. Down jackets are made of the inner layer of feathers of waterfowl, most often geese or ducks. They offer warmth and the convenience of being lightweight at the same time. Combined with the Japanese fashion sense, down jackets have taken the streets by storm.
A wide variety of styles and colors can be seen. From bright colors to the chic black, you would find them everywhere. More than this, new technologies have been applied to the making of down jackets – increasing their functionality together with the price. I wonder where how these jackets would fare as warmer weather arrives?
