Fabric of my Life.

wiwn, Oct.

You’d have thought, having made the decision to move up North, that I’d have invested in a good raincoat well ahead of time, right?

Wrong. Well, partly. 


I have great options for keeping me warm in the depths of winter, but right now I’m severely lacking something waterproof that will take me through this transitional season of ‘somewhat chilly, but exceptionally damp’ and not have me too bundled up against the chill and therefore unprepared for it to get even colder. Which it will. Oh yes siree.


Protected Species raincoats have been on my radar ever since lovely Jaime from Angloyankophile described the brand’s parka as ‘the ultimate waterproof coat‘ – high praise indeed! I really love the look of their new season waterproof mac, but sadly so does everyone else it seems, and they’ve already sold out! The parka seems the logical next choice —well, I do live in Manchester!— and since I definitely cannot afford the Jil Sander number I’ve been lusting after on Farfetch, it seems to be my best bet.


Oh, but which colour to choose??!
