Arket's puffer coat was one of the most coveted items of winter 2020, selling out rapidly thanks to influencers and editors alike championing the practical yet stylish winter staple. It was easy to see the appeal: thanks to its comfortable downy texture and casual yet chic look, it was the perfect purchase for all those winter lockdown walks.
The good news is, the coat was so popular that Arket brought it back last year and again now for winter 2023. And this year, it's even better than before. Why? Well, Arket's puffer coat collection has expanded to include more styles and lengths, plus all the coats are made from the label's Upcycled Down™, created using recycled down and feathers from supplier Re:Down.
The pre-used down and feathers are collected from discarded clothing, sleeping bags and bedding products, then washed and sterilised at high temperatures in thermal water without using chemicals.
Arket's original, ever-popular long-down puffer coat is back in stock, alongside a newer oversize down jacket and waisted down jacket. Each coat is available in classic black, as well as other timeless shades such as cream and khaki.
With editors and influencers all over the UK investing in these jackets, there is absolutely no denying that they are a practical and polished must-have for winter. Arket's down jackets will keep you warm, while simultaneously ensuring you stay stylish. They're a classic for a reason and will certainly stay in your winter rotation for years to come.
