The quilted Lion Parka is a strong piece from Triumvir inspired by medieval chain mail armor. The Lion Parka ties a hint of history with a mix of modernism by using matte pyramid studs and a pocket for the very necessary MP3 player. A subtle sense of sophistication is applied with interchangeable cuff and collar straps combined with a soft satin lined interior. Available in select stores next week and online at triumvir3.com on October, 17th.
