Storm troopers: every cloud has a single lining with the latest all-weather outerwear
Whether you’re pounding pavements, mooching on the moors or pedalling urban cycle paths, concerted efforts are being made to ensure that weather-proofing doesn’t compromise your style.
Loro Piana’s baby camel and cashmere city coat is crafted from a double-layered fabric and treated with a newly developed Rain System technology, giving a water-repellent finish. Herno, too, is on hand for stormy weather. The Italian outerwear expert’s classic raincoat is both waterproof and windproof, and features a triple Gore-Tex layer, and a detachable inner goose-down jacket for added warmth. Its elongated sleeves and high neck provide the comfort of both a sweater and a scarf.
Woolrich, America’s oldest outerwear brand, has stayed true to its roots. This water repellent coat features an inner padded jacket and a warming neckline that reaches to the ears, its cut concealing the detachable layer underneath. Meanwhile, POC and Forth’s debut commuter-focused collection includes pieces with cyclist-friendly features. The Swedish label’s outerwear has extendable sleeves, an unfolding back pocket for your mobile phone and a capped hood designed to fit safely over a helmet.
