In case you were wondering, the puffer jacket is still cool. And in case you were wondering what sub-trends it had created, look no further than the puffer bag.
Yes, designers are taking cues from their favourite down jackets for their accessories, padding out bags and giving them that wintery, puffer feel.
Starting with Maison Margiela, the humble patent puffer has taken on a new life, being made into everything from clutches to carry alls. Seen everywhere — and we really do mean everywhere — at New York Fashion Week in February, the style, which Margiela has named ‘Glam Slam’ was styled up, down and all around by editors and influencers alike. Just like BOYY’s famed buckle bag in Copenhagen, the Glam Slam was Manhattan’s favourite accessory.
Now, brands like Kara are doing their own take on the puffy bags, with cute, cloud-like pastels which can basically double as pillows. And with those cold winter mornings just around the corner, we might actually use them as just that. Shop our favourites below.
