Burberry Parka A/W 2010
BURBERRY BRIT WAXED HOODED FISHTAIL PARKA
Introducing the Burberry Brit Fishtail Parka. A timeless, iconic classic updated for AW10. The Fishtail Parka was first developed by the military in 1951 to protect soldiers from the elements and during the 1960′s in the UK the fishtail parka became a symbol of the mod subculture. Due to their practicality, affordibility and availability from army surplus shops, the parka noted as the ideal garment for fending off the elements when on a scooter.
The fishtail parka has stood the test of time through simplicity of design, versatility and functionality coupled with protective qualities. For AW10 the Burberry Brit Hooded Fishtail Parka comes in waxed cotton, with epaulettes, a concealed zip and button placket and two magnetic flap closures.
