How Woolrich Perfected the Women's Parka

A timeless, iconic and multi-functional winter necessity.

The Woolrich brand has been crafting and manufacturing outerwear for nearly two centuries, with each collection building upon and strengthening the strong design heritage founded back in 1830.

To celebrate 190 years of history, Woolrich presents the Fall/Winter 2020 Arctic Parka Series. The capsule, consisting of three different outerwear packages among others, includes the Luxe, Tech and Eco Parkas, each perfectly embodies the brand’s signature combination of innovation and style.

The first Arctic Parka was designed in the ’70s for workers constructing the Alaskan pipeline, where daily temperature averages were -40° below freezing. The shell of the garment was made using 60/40 Ramar Cloth fabric (to be used in many Woolrich garments over the years), while down insulation, fur trim on the hood and the cuffs were designed to keep workers warm and body heat trapped inside the parka.

The Arctic Parka’s unmistakable silhouette — including all pockets and compartments — remains relevant today. Woolrich has pioneered the Parka’s evolution over the last 40 years, including variations on the fur-lined hood, incorporation of technological fabrics and the use of sustainable materials, creating a women’s range that is both stylish and functional. Read on to find out more about Woolrich’s Luxe, Tech and Eco Parkas.

Luxe Arctic Parka

The women’s Luxe Arctic Parka is crafted from pure virgin wool that has been specially treated for a wind- and water-resistant finish and has been manufactured by the Italian luxury brand Loro Piana. It has been generously filled with duck-down padding and the parkas slim-fit design comes with a mix of refined and practical details, striking a balance between comfort and style.

Eco Long Military Parka

The women’s Eco Long Military Parka comes with a slim-fit silhouette that has been crafted from the latest iteration of Woolrich’s wind- and water-resistant Ramar Cloth. It dons a detachable quilted liner for extra warmth and a variety of other considered and purposeful details.

Tech Arctic Parka

The Tech Arctic Parka is constructed from GORE-TEX for a breathable, waterproof and wind-resistant jacket, having been built for the urban environment. Graphene, an innovative and multi-purpose material that is light and regulates body temperature, is incorporated into the insulation and lining of the parka.
