Canada Goose
This Canadian brand of winterwear has been around for awhile, and growing steadily in popularity the past couple of years. They make serious heavy duty parka's for men/women/kids and I love the simplicity in a lot of their design. Colette has recently collaborated with them to produce a limited edition version of several jackets.

I'm considering getting the women's Kensington parka but I fear that it may be too warm for the streets of London and perhaps not so work-wear friendly. Do others have any Canada Goose jackets/coats - what are your thoughts? Are they versatile or only good for those living in harsh winter climates?

the Kensington (I prefer it in military green):

I just bought my first Canada Goose parka last year and absolutely love it! I debated between the Trillium and the Kensington and ended up with the Trillium.



The Kensington is supposed to be the most stylish design of the bunch - it's the most slim-fitting and flattering. It's also less warm than the other models. For me, being in Canada, I wanted the warmest jacket I could get, but if you have milder winters where you are, the Kensington might just be perfect! I work in an office environment and wear my Canada goose parka to work...I don't see a problem with it.

Btw, I noticed your images are from ssense.com. That's actually where I bought mine from...great service!

Yeah I've seen a lot of people like the Trillium. Since I won't be spending much of my winter in Canada (only a couple weeks at the most) I don't need the heaviest jacket. I worry that wearing a parka to work is more acceptable in Canada than the UK But I do think the Trillium and Kensington are much sleeker. Did you get the Trillium in the white? Thanks for the tip about ssense!

You may be right about wearing parkas to work being more acceptable in Canada than the UK...our winters are just that much colder, so it's a necessity!

I did get the Trillium in white. I was worried about it getting dirty, but it hasn't been an issue yet. I love the look of white winter outerwear!

i, as well as most people in sweden, own an "expedition parka" because it gets kinda cold here they keep you super warm, well worth the price.
