We love a good collab. Seriously, what's better than two of our favorite brands coming together to create a special capsule collection? That's right—nothing. And in the spirit of winter weather, we decided we would take a moment to acknowledge the best luxury outerwear collaborations of the past year.
But first, let's talk about outerwear in general. A good piece of outerwear is an investment, something that you will have for seasons to come. If you live somewhere Arctic, say Chicago, then you really know the value of a sturdy winter coat. If your hometown is a little more temperate, then maybe you prefer a light down jacket or a sleek rain ponch0 for all you Seattleites. That being said, we bet you haven't refreshed your outerwear in a while. In fact, there's a solid chance that you are still wearing that parka from the days of velvet pantsuits and jeggings. Yes, it might be warm, but so are these coats from these exclusive collections (and they're cool, too).
There's something quite beautiful about an unexpected partnership. Whether it's a luxury brand joining forcers with another or a designer house working with an established activewear brand, the results are nothing short of legendary. In fact, some of these collabs have been so good, that they have made seasonal reappearances like The North Face x Gucci's iconic collection. From Moncler x Palm Angel array of edgy down shells to Canada Goose's latest sustainable line with Reformation, there's a collaboration out there for everyone.
You can still get your hands on one of these limited edition pieces, but we can't promise for how much longer. So shop these 6 best luxury outerwear collaborations today.
Moncler x Palm Angels
Evoking an eclectic vintage store, Moncler teamed up with Palm Angels to create a series of down jackets, knitwear, vests, and other winter staples. It is Italian synergy, a Milan-born founder conspiring with a Milan-based skiwear company to create a collection that has vision and creativity.
The North Face x Gucci
When you think of an outerwear collaboration, we are pretty sure this one comes to top of mind. Celebrating the spirit of exploration, The North Face and Gucci came together to create a high-end line of jackets, shirts, shoes, and bags. Bold and geometric, the pieces take you on a journey of past to present.
Barbour x Chloé
If you prefer something more traditional, Barbour and Chloé created a free-spirited collection embodying heritage and French charm. Exuding equestrian and country money, the collaboration features winged wax jackets and trench coats, boots, and various accessories.
Canada Goose x Reformation
Canada Goose has been working on reducing its environmental footprint more than ever before. Its stylish and sustainable collaboration with Reformation has been one of the most notable steps so far, leading to retro floral prints in reversible silhouettes. Made to last, these coats are going to get your through the next years of tundras to come.
Perfect Moment x DL1961
Luxury skiwear meets denim in this unlikely pairing of two brands. The wax coating and water-resistant treatment from Perfect Moment is applied to DL1961's lightweight performance denim to keep you warm and dry all season long. You can also opt for the matching pants, if that's your thing. Plus, a denim jacket like this one really does make for a perfect moment.
Moon Boot x Alanui
Once you settle on your swanky outerwear, you will need some new winter boots to match. While Moon Boot has been bouncing back with some of its latest designer capsule collections, the Alanui one takes the cake. From bandana-print to suede fringe, there's a boho-chic exuberance about the shoes. Besides, if it's good enough for Gigi Hadid, then it's good enough for us.
