Modern lifestyle has significantly changed fashion: women’s clothes have become more comfy, practical, and simpler in their cut. The modifications are especially vivid in the case of Coats and Warm Jacket collections: when a woman is active all day long, ladies' coats have to fit perfectly and provide freedom of movement. That’s why today fashion-lovers usually choose jackets instead of warm coats or fur coats for winter or demi-season.
Coats are considered an attribute of classic and casual looks, but some of their models are suitable for sports street ensembles and outdoor outfits. These include:
Alaska - park-like down jackets or warm jackets on padding polyester have a waist accentuated with a drawstring or belt, a detachable hood, and additional knitted cuffs; elongated anoraks - lightweight quilted jackets with a stand-up collar and synthetic filler, laconic in cut, decorated with transverse or shaped materials with blown panels; windbreakers - waterproof demi-season raincoats with an adjustable tight-fitting hood, a high collar and sleeves with elastic bands on the wrists; “Mandarin” - an elongated jacket with patch pockets on the chest and under the belt, complemented by a belt with a buckle or loose ends and a zipper with a button placket.
When sewing women's sports coats, the same materials are used for jackets. The upper is made of nylon, polyester, or cotton with water-repellent impregnations, the back can be polyester, fleece, or knit. The decor depends on the style of the manufacturer and the seasonal trends, as a rule, these are prints, textured and contrasting details.
