There are some upsides to the brisk British winter, and our favourite of the moment is the new A/W kids’ collection by Penfield, stocked at the ever-brilliant Couverture and the Garbstore. This cosy collection of quilted Parkas are niftily lined with goose down – giving our mini-mes licence to quite literally wear portable duvets out (the dream!).
Penfield has long been a US brand staple, keeping Americans toasty since 1975, and is even a favourite of Icelandic folk wishing to stave off the cold in one of the most face-numbing environments on the planet (we’re pretty sure it can handle our British weather then). And to bring us this new line in tiny modish outerwear, Penfield’s designers have drawn inspiration from their best-selling grown-ups’ products; the mountain parkas and famous down jackets, tweaked to measure and made to keep kids stylishly equipped for adventures in the great outdoors.
Grab the tent pegs, the fishing rod and portable hob; it’s time to weather the great outdoors.
