Trending: puffa pieces

Far from its sporting origins, the intrepid down jacket makes a major fashion statement this season.

If there was any doubt that the quilted “puffa” jacket has made the schussfrom snowbound staple to mod must-have for fall, the debut show of Demna Gvasalia for Balenciaga sealed the deal. His iconic red parka—cut to fall off the shoulder—topped a glittering turtleneck, skinny black trousers and high heels. Likewise, a number his fellow designers have reworked the down-filled warmer in a number of cool new guises. Here are some of our favorites:
