Look Book | Quartz Co. Edition Collection

I have been waiting for months to finally be able to share some posts on outerwear – literally counting down the days. You’re all very familiar with past posts on Parajumpers, Rudsak, Nobis, Moose Knuckles, Canada Goose & Colmar; most of which are Canadian. But I wanted to kick off the F/W season with another Canadian outwear line; Quartz Co.

Here’s a backgrounder for those of you unfamiliar with Quartz Co.

Founded in 1997, Quartz Co. is known in Canada and around the world for the quality of its winter parkas that are warm, light and perfectly designed for cold winter weather. The year 2015 marks an important turning point for the company, when it was sold to brothers, Jean-Philippe and François-Xavier Robert, who see Quartz Co. as a company with exceptional know-how and potential. All parkas are crafted near Montreal, Quebec, one of Canada’s harshest urban climates. The brand is equally inspired by a city lifestyle and nature’s beautiful, forceful elements. For nearly 20 years, Quartz Co. parkas have been worn in extreme weather conditions and in cities worldwide. The company is proud of its Canadian roots and strives to bring Canada’s premium craftmanship all over the globe. Quartz Co. products are available in more than 20 countries including Japan, Korea, Norway, France, Germany & Switzerland.

Quartz Co. latest is the EDITION collection, line comprised of 5 parka silhouettes designed & made in Canada. #WEARCANADIAN for real. The Lutse, Maguire, Salome, Aris and Ajna – are updated fits on the traditional parka ranging in colours from red, military green, navy, black, light grey and even a traditional camouflage print.

I’m normally a sucker for a cropped fur-lined hooded parka but to be honest my favourite of all these silhouettes is the MAGUIRE. There’s just something about that fit that says cool without trying so hard. Black is one colourway I never buy myself or suggest clients purchase because EVERYONE buys the black parka and I can’t stand a crowd of them; so I’m really, really feeling that red colourway. So bright, I want it!

So as the temps drop; I’ll leave these right here. To learn more about Quartz Co. and where to purchase your own made in Canada jacket visit, Quartz-co.ca and share which one you bought!
