FORM AND FUCTION ARE A UNITY, TWO SIDES OF ONE COIN. IN ORDER TO ENHANCE FUNCTION, APPROPRIATE FORM MUST EXIST OR BE CREATED_
AW15 for NATIVE YOUTH our aim was to create a range that was as impressive in its functionality as it was in its aesthetic appeal.
The biggest example of this is can be seen in the collections coats and jackets. Dry waxed cottons, technical rip stop and winter warm polar fleece linings form the pillars of outerwear, whilst water resistant coatings, internal bungee straps and removable inner jackets serve to further enhance functionality to wearer.
Native Youth Outerwear designer Rachael Cliffe talks us through our AW15 outerwear on offer that is guaranteed to keep you toasty this Winter.
The 3 in 1
The 3 in 1 is a great versatile jacket to have in your wardrobe this winter, it does exactly what it says on the tin... its 1 jacket that can be worn 3 ways;
1. Go all out and wear it as it comes with all layers intact. Trust me you won’t get cold.
2. Go for just the outer main jacket on its own, great for warmer transitional months or cooler summer nights.
3. Take the inner quilted jacket out and wear alone for a more casual look worn during any season
It's safe to say this jacket has got a lot to offer
The Dry Wax Parka
The Dry Wax Parka is my favourite piece of the collection! The fabric is premium dry wax which holds it shape well and offers something different to any other jacket out there for AW15.
I have added little touches inside to give this jacket extra personality, and with its mixed fabric lining and removable gilet liner this is another jacket in our range that keeps on giving. The removable gilet liner is to add warmth in the winter but can also be removed so you can wear this piece into the New Year.
It's not called the Attenborough for no reason, this is by far the warmest jacket in our range. Polar fleece lined and fully padded, it doesn’t get much more winter proof than this!
Whether you’re walking the dog, watching the footy or challenging a mountain hike, this jacket's got your back.
Pockets inside and out are big enough for the latest smart phone/tablet and bungee cord internal waist adjustment and internal map pockets give this jacket extra function for its aesthetic form.
The Padded Mac
Getting a bit smarter now with our summer mac update, the padded winter mac has a great tailored fit and a classic design, perfect for the commute to work or weekend shopping trips, it is lightweight but also a bone warmer.
The fabric is water resistant so it will keep you dry in light showers and is quick drying too!
Internal and external pockets and a bungee cord hanger loop giving this jacket a functional aspect.
