If there is a ‘low cost’ garment that, in recent years, has become a basic of our most comfortable and warm looks, those are Uniqlo’s lightweight pens. The Japanese firm managed to ‘strain’ this outerwear into our closets, making it super recognizable and essential in both urban and ‘sporty’ outfits. Those who tried his famous light down jackets, no longer wanted others, and his fans faithfully repeated and repeated every season, in different colors and formats. At least, until thenew Lefties collection…
The prices of Uniqlo start at 49.90 euros (the vests) and reach 160 in its most exclusive version: an ultra-warm, very light coat with a waterproof finish. However, Lefties has arrived with its new online store ready to burst the market this winter, and has launched a collection with aesthetically equal outerwear from 18 euros.
They assure that they are ‘light as air’ (light as air) and they arrive in the form of a basic padded jacket (17.99) in six colors and from size XS to XXL; a fur-effect coat with a hood (29.99 euros, in sizes S, M and L); a raincoat available in pink or navy blue, with a shearling lining (29.99 euros); a black leather-effect quilted down (29.99 euros) and 90s-inspired down jackets in khaki or mustard (25.99 euros).
