In the quest for the perfect winter coat, Italian designer Alessia Giacobino lined a vintage military parka with soft fur to create a unique sartorial statement that served to keep her warm without sacrificing style. Admired by her husband, who requested a male version, and garnering countless compliments, the parka became the founding icon of the Mr & Mrs Italy brand. Taking inspiration from US army surplus, a limited collection of silhouettes offers a relaxed, unisex aesthetic in long, short and relaxed fits, while plush fur makes an instant impact in both tonal hues and pops of bold colour and riotous stripes. Resulting in an understated take on everyday luxury, a Mr & Mrs Italy parka is the first word in casual cool.- less
