With subzero temperatures showing no sign of slowing down over the next couple of months, there’s one outerwear company that’s guaranteed to keep you warm. Historic New York based brand RefrigiWear excels in the field of insulated clothing. Thermo padded, windproof, water repellent - it does it all and more. Worn by Alaskan pipeline workers and young trendsetters alike, RefrigiWear bridges the gap between fashion and comfort.
Born in the bustling heart of New York City, RefrigiWear knows, one, how to tap into your everyday attire, two, the necessity for hybrid fashion-utilitarian garments, and three, how to brave extremely cold weather. Its slick, subtle, industrial designs partnered with their multi-faceted and sure-fire insulating technology allows RefrigiWear to tap into the ever-growing outerwear market. The burgeoning demand for casualization and convenience has seen outerwear apparel gain more and more traction, with brands increasingly adopting the “comfort is key” motto. From a distanced walk with a mate in -8 degrees to picking up coffee from your local around the corner, social life as we know it is indefinitely, for the most part, outdoors. With RefrigiWear, upping your outerwear game has never been so easy and affordable.
Here’s how some of Europe’s Insta-creatives are styling out RefrigiWear’s latest collection.
Terence Sambo wears the Vyner Kaban from the Vyner Articles x RefrigiWear collab that dropped this winter. Inspired by some of RefrigiWear's staple garments over the years, this jacket is the lovechild of refinement and progressive design. Sambo proves that the Vyner Kaban can fit in with quite literally any look or backdrop - furry Paraboots in the Dickensian British countryside? Easy.
There's no other way to describe Niclas Sefidi here other than effortlessly on point. Layered earthy hues keep this look simple yet sharp. Oh and this Original Vest, available in four colors, keeps you protected in temperatures as low as -50C. That's all you need to know.
Christian Bofini puts the outer in outerwear. Capturing just how versatile this RefrigiWear vest is, Bofini is serving us a minimal look that highlights the forever power of layering in the cold winter months. Whether you're hopping around in sunny Copenhagen like Sefidi, or in snowy Swiss surroundings like Bofini, this vest's got your back.
Like really, don't sleep on this vest. Sneakerhead wideawakearthquake (Daniela Buck) lives up to her epithet by finishing off her look with some Chuck 70's, courtesy of the Converse x Feng Chen Wang collab. Splash a hit of color onto the neutral tone of the vest, add a timeless Burberry scarf and you're good to go.
