Our first-ever raincoat, a colourful companion to a rainy day.
Hooded with snap button closures. Hille's outer is a technical recycled water resistant gabardine, in a rich sheeny red. It's fully lined with smooth recycled polyester twill, printed with collection artist James Watkins' organic forms.
Hille's cut is a take on sophisticated utilitarianism. With its funnel neck buttoned up, it holds a subtle cocoon shape. Undone, it drapes and falls like a parka.
For the Chame collection, James painted original works on large-scale canvases. He photographed small sections of his artworks to use as prints on the collection pieces, rather than using the entire canvas. In Hille's artwork, the closeup reveals the canvas' texture in the lining of the coat.
In the artwork, dominant reds and greens are accented by blue and grey. Flashes of blue mimic a distant mountain range, with a field of long grasses beneath. A swirling form lies in the corner, an indefinable energy amongst the natural world.
Made in England.
Hille's outer consists of European-made water resistant technical gabardine. Its fibres consist of 70% Seaquall and 30% recycled polyester. Seaquall is a high-quality 100% post-consumer recycled polyester yarn containing upcycled marine plastic (10%), with the remaining 90% being post-consumer PET from land sources. The coat's lining is rPET recycled polyester twill, made from post-consumer plastic packaging products.
Despite its recycled origin, it should be noted polyester is a contributor to ocean microplastics - when washing your coat, we recommend using a Guppy Friend washing bag to capture the microparticles before they enter the water stream.
Our digital printing supplier is based near London, in the meadows of the Cotswolds. They print with only azo-free dyes.
Each coat is manufactured at a North London based small-batch production studio. The studio specializes in high-end production, working with many emerging and established designers and brands in the city.
It takes seven hours to cut and sew just one of our pieces.
