It is no coincidence that designer Mila Marcel has started making winter clothes. She was born in the Murmansk region, where the temperature in winter drops to minus 30-40 degrees. In Russia, the cold season lasts nine months a year, so the development of outerwear has become an open space for the designer's imagination and a kind of challenge. Marcel wanted to prove that you can look stylish without sacrificing warmth and comfort.

The collection of the brand is divided into four lines: down jackets, insulated with down or innovative filler thinsulate, and fur coats made of 100% wool or from exclusive washable fur.
The first line includes the warmest models. They are designed taking into account the Russian weather and can withstand temperatures up to minus 30 degrees. Every detail - from fasteners and buttons to filling - is checked many times by hand. Down jacket filling consists of 90% down and 10% feather. A special inner cover is filled with fluff, after which another layer is created on top, on which a print, stitching and other details are applied. Double painstaking work and substantial material consumption guarantee maximum quality.
The second line - down jackets insulated with thinsulate - are lighter models. They can be machine washed, they do not wrinkle or deform. Best of all, these clothes are suitable for those who do not have time to wear a down jacket to dry cleaning. Inside the down jackets there is an innovative patented thinsulate filler that came into fashion from sports. It fits into the everyday wardrobe thanks to its practicality and durability. In addition, it is one of the most energy-efficient types of filler: it is not cold outside and not hot indoors or on the move. Thinsulate can withstand temperatures up to minus 25 degrees.

The special pride of the designer is the fur coats made of 100% wool. Mila Marcel refused to use natural fur, as well as polyester, from which artificial fur coats are often made - this material in terms of ecology is no better than natural fur, since the production of synthetics releases harmful substances into the atmosphere.
To create a Mila Marsel fur coat, animal fur is carefully trimmed. It can withstand temperatures up to minus 30 degrees. In addition, the wind will not blow through the fur coat due to the high density of the thread. Eco-coats are expensive, since their creation is a painstaking, almost jewelry work.
The last part of the collection is fur coats made from washable faux fur. This is an innovative development of the Mila Marsel brand. The line also includes two double-sided models that turn from a fur coat into a sheepskin coat. They are machine washable.>
