To put you in good spirits when the weather is cold and dank, designers offer to wear down -padded coats with positive floral ornaments. On the catwalks, we can see models with huge roses, peonies, bright tropical greens and small field flowers.

 

Geometry is also in trend: stripes, rectangles, zigzags and circles. Loved by fashion designers, the bocho-style is introduced by ethnic prints. Military style is still in fashion: khaki, olive and green-brown colors became the leaders of the shows.

 

                                                                    Finishing

In Autumn-Winter 2017-2018 the main decorative trend for fashionable women’s down-padded coats is fur. Fashion designers use both natural and faux fur. In models with faux fur they use ecological fur with a long hair, which looks no worse than natural. Such finishing adds a touch of luxury even in the simplest models of down-padded coats.

 

 

 

                                                   How to choose a down-padded coat

Certainly the quality of a down -padded coat above all depends on its filler. To check it, look at the brand label. The down -padded coat of high quality, manufactured according to all technological requirements, has the mark “down” on the label, which indicates the presence of it as a filler.

Also, there should be a sample of the filler, attached to the label with indicating the country of the manufacturer and washing instructions.

The manufacturer’s logo is indicated on the accessories of the down-padded coat.

In addition, spare buttons and press studs should come with the outer garment.

Also pay your attention to the wrong side: down -padded coat should be carefully sewed in.
