Iconic non-slip Beanie Hood
Our versatile parkas feature a non-slip beanie hood that follows your movements as you turn your head in different directions, and always has a comfortable fit.
Taped seams enhance the waterproof protection of clothing. Needle stitching leaves tiny holes in the garment through which water can seep when worn in wet conditions, however, taped seams prevents this from happening.
The synthetic PrimaLoft® insulation mimics all the warmth-retaining properties of down, but doesn't retain water, so you'll stay dry even in wet weather. This type of insulation is also breathable thanks to its bouclé fiber structure (the fibers are crimped together) and doesn't clump after washing.
TAUROBRAN®: Breathable & Waterproof
Built on the science of comfort, TAUROBRAN® is our ground-breaking technology that’s waterproof, ultra-breathable and so light and soft, you won’t feel it’s there. TAUROBRAN® keeps the water out thanks to a unique 3-layer microscopic fiber membrane technology (waterproof rating 5,000mm) and lets perspiration escape to keep you dry from the inside out.
Integrated Travel system for compact storage
A travel-friendly feature which reduces the hassle of carrying a jacket around when you don’t need it. An integrated packing system enables you to fold down the garment and turn it into a handy pouch which is easy to store away. Pouches equipped with the travelhandle can also be attached to suitcases for a more comfortable journey. Carry it as a bag when out and about or use it as a pillow during long-distance flights.
Laser Cut Perforation
Don’t let design come between you and your experience of the city. The laser-cut perforations on the hood allow the wearer to hear and perceive environmental noise, keeping you connected and aware of the surroundings all the time. Precision laser-cut holes allow you to hear what is going on around you – you can even answer the phone through the hood!

The History of the KOOV/KUUV Parka
THE KOOV/KUUV AUTUMN/WINTER 2022 EDITION
Taking inspiration from the Opera House in the Chinese city of Harbin, the AlphaTauri Autumn/Winter 2022 collection – entitled The Futuristic Acoustics – reflects the symbiosis of ultra-modern lines and the aluminium details of the architecture. Translating this function-meets-fashion inspiration, THE KOOV/KUUV has design details that increase comfort and facilitate movement – from multiple pockets, to under-arm ventilation, which allows for an easy regulation of body temperature. This ensures maximum comfort while taking into consideration the wearer’s needs – keeping you dry and comfortable on the go.
The sleek design is a fashion-forward statement for urban wanderers, which comes in a neutral colour-palette.
