A London festival is perfect for the festival goer who likes to avoid all of the camping bother and craves the freedom to just enjoy a day of live music, great performances, a buzzy atmosphere and of course the great British weather.
To celebrate the summer we went on a little festival outing with a few guests to see Frank Ocean and Solange and other musical talents at Lovebox as well as try out a few of our essential summer parkas and jackets from our current seasons offerings.
The weather forecast for the day was overcast with a few spots of sunshine and potential showers, the perfect weather for a parka. Our SS17 parkas were created to make sure that you can enjoy your summer, whatever the weather. Here is what we wore:
The Issy is our lightweight short parka, perfect for when you are in festival mode. The feel good brushed cotton-nylon fabric and considered detail makes this a great layering piece and a timeless go to piece you’ll adore.
The Marni parka is a versatile lightweight rain parka that will keep you looking effortlessly great. It is so easy to wear and style. The soft, lightweight and breathable rubber coated fabric makes sure you have just enough protection from a surprise shower, and is light enough to keep you cool when the temperature rises. You'll never want to take it off
The Howcroft is our lightweight workwear shirt jacket, perfect for the festival fields. Cut from a lightweight garment dyed cotton and extra detailing including a dipped hem, back pleating, subtle branded buttons, and a corduroy lined pocket tips for a modern adaption of this essential style.
The Finlay is our modern heritage military inspired parka. It’s oversized and clean silhouette will suit pretty much any frame. Man or woman! Made from the soft, lightweight rubber coated fabric, this style is an essential rain parka and just a cool throw on over a light top and a pair of jeans.
