We all know the British weather can be a little unreliable, but even so when it comes to rain jackets, I’m not usually one to don them. I’d rather take the risk and get blown about with an umbrella in the wind. However, when it comes to Lavenham Jackets, the English quality clothing brand (since 1969) appears to have been kicking up a storm – and providing stylish, weather-proof jackets to brace it in – and I’m ready to run into the rain in one.
Lured in by this bright little Rougham Ladies number, at £245 the price is a little steep – but totally worth it. This isn’t a throw-away rain coat, far from it. It’s a jacket for life. Flaunting glorious quilted stitching, a light-weight canvas, an adorable handy hood, gunmetal zipper and dropped hemline, it’s a classic jacket that will stand you in good stead – especially when it comes to the changing trends. With its sports luxe draw-string hood, it’s a great piece to pair with your casual, laid-back wardrobe. Think luxe, slogan tees, the new season’s faded, ripped jeans and your favourite battered sandals or kicks. And, a pair of sunglasses of course – for when the sun finally decides to shine.
Showcasing a line heavy in luxurious quilted styles, with the occasional faux fur or corduroy collar (and in delectable pastel shades for spring/summer), Lavenham Jackets don’t fail to wet your sartorial appetite for something a little more laid-back. It’s a brand that not only offers superior quality country clothing, from horse-rugs to jackets and accessories, but a brand that offers this quality in style. Every stage of the products’ production is meticulously overseen to ensure the fluency and consistency of their design, using British materials to face the very British weather in. This is tradition with a contemporary twist at its best.
