Growing up in the land of cold and white boys that think they are gang bangers, I swore off bubble coats at an early age. The only time I have ever worn one of those North Face coats was once in 10th grade, when a friend & I both borrowed them from other girls in the locker room, ran to opposite sides of the space, and charged and crashed off one another. I must admit, that is one of my fond school memories, but other than that, I always found the bubble coat aesthetically unpleasing. Surprisingly, this year a few have popped up (no pun intended) that I’ve actually liked, and would actually WEAR. Nixon’s discovery of the corseted, albeit brown, mystery coat in her Quilting Bee post comes to mind, and this recent runway show of Junya Watanabe’s poof coats have made me reconsider my position on the subject.
