1980s Purple Obermeyer Puffer Jacket

1980s Purple Obermeyer Puffer Jacket

Excuse me while I fetch my Lisa Frank trapper keeper and my Popple - but this jacket TOTALLY has me reliving all my late 80s / early 90s childhood memories in all the best ways.

 

This lightweight down puffer jacket in oh-so-nostalgic pastel pink and purple (a color combo that saturated much of the era's pop-culture: think "Jem and the Holograms" etc). This piece was made by one of my favorite vintage brands - Obermeyer. I love their pieces because they hold up so well even after decades! 

 

Featuring two cotton-lined, hand-warming, exterior slit pockets with zipper closures, as well as two additional storage pockets on the interior. And a convenient, buil-in key keeper in the signature Obermeyer heart shape.

 

No contest though, the star of the show here is the iconic 80s architectural shape! The high collar and asymetrical lapel can be popped and styled so many ways using the full length zipper and 5 snaps at your disposal. And those shoulders!!! Serving space age, 80s futuristic fashion. The 3-dimensional shoulders clearly channel Michael Jackson's iconic "Thriller" jacket... with maybe a little Judy Jetson and some Princess Glimmer of Bright Moon thrown in for good measure.
 

Seen all over the runways the past few seasons, big shoulders are back in a big way!

 

Grab this jacket immediately before my inner child prevents me from letting her go!!!!
