Puffer coats have long been considered practical, but stylish? Thanks to a host of designer interpretations of the cosy, borderline-ugly outerwear, they’ve become something of a fashion girl must-have. Arguably it was last year when the puffer coat’s sartorial status really reached its peak, with the likes of Bottega Veneta creating a very special leather puffer coat, which swiftly made its way to the top of many an editor and influencer’s wish list.
But then in 2020, as we’re all spending a lot more time outside, the duvet coat has become a must-have for everyone, and not just those with budgets for the designer versions. It’s not surprising then that according to global fashion search platform Lyst, that searches for “duvet coat” are “rising quickly and are currently up 34% since the start of the month”. People are also searching for “maxi down coat”, “duvet jacket” as well as “quilted duvet coat”.
