Just Peachy: Eryn Brinie Jersey Parka with Hood

When I see or hear the word “parka,” a softly draped, delicate, and ultra-feminine garment isn’t really what comes to mind. But those adjectives are exactly what describes this hooded jersey parka from the South Korea-based clothing label Eryn Brinie.

Eryn Brinie Jersey Parka with Hood

Fluid, lightweight, and evoking a carefree vibe with its slightly rumpled appearance, this Eryn Brinie parka is the perfect spring/summer version of the heavy fall/winter parkas. Typical parkas are usually made out of cotton twill and usually only come in dark, somber colors, so it’s a bit of an ingenious move to create this garment in a breezy rayon fabric¬†and in a light peach color.

With this design, Eryn Brinie has reworked the parka entirely. They also just might have coined a new fashion term in calling this design a “summer parka.”

Eryn Brinie describes itself as a label that “exemplifies European chic combined with New York’s youthful spirit,” but their South Korean/Asian influences are most evident in this particular design. Not that it’s a bad thing, of course, but they could work those influences into their image (or into their brand’s description, at least), and it wouldn’t change a thing. The flowy draping, the body-skimming styles, and the loose silhouettes are all distinctively Asian that it seems strange that they don’t acknowledge it.

The Eryn Brinie Jersey Parka with Hood is $217.00 at Revolve Clothing.
