The Parka coat was origionally introduced by eskimos but then re-introduced in the 1930s as winter sports wear and again was a hit in the 80s. The Parka was normally worn in cold weather activities like skiing and skating because of its comfort and warmth. It's now back on the fashion calender, a spring/08 trend and must-have for every fashion gals closet. Lots of drawstrings, zips and pockets for this look to have an impact. Very chic 1980s style and simply keeping it real. Its laid back but sexy. Get yourself a parka!
