Italian fashion brand Liu Jo has announced its first quilted down jacket collection under the name of “Les Plumes de Liu Jo.” The edition comes in 24 different models, 8 colors, and 5 versatile and eclectic materials and includes a range of long and short quilted jackets and hoods.

Real down is combined with materials ranging from essential glossy nylon to rich nylon with tone-on-tone lace inserts as well as double-face nylon, heavy nylon and sophisticated duchesse. A variety of materials have been employed, such as mohair and fur with alternating stitches and ruches. Down has become an iconic element through the use of extremely recherché details like sophisticated gold decorations, shiny diamond studs, button and buckle jewels, printed linings, and removable cuffs, collars and belts.

Two specially versatile quilted jackets have been designed to meet the daily needs of today’s woman, elegantly shifting between day and night occasions. Liu Jo proposes two functional and charming models which may be combined with accessories and fur details for an elegant couture touch.

The collection will be available beginning in July/August 2012. Wholesale prices start at €100.
