Fall weather can be as unpredictable as a Kanye West album release, with sun, wind, rain, and even snow all possibilities for the forecast. That makes dressing appropriately a tricky task to master. Ensuring your wardrobe is equipped with outerwear assets fit for the elements is a priority, and to help you get season-ready, we’ve picked out the jackets ready to brave pretty much all of them. You’ll find plenty of options at luxury British retailer Harvey Nichols, and we’ve picked out some current highlights.
From GORE-TEX boasting rain shields to plump puffers with ultra-warming properties, our selection includes pieces by a wide range of outdoor wear specialists and beyond, including stalwarts Stone Island and Norse Projects, as well as runway-ready labels such as Our Legacy.
Harvey Nichols will also be launching a special pop-up concept at its Knightsbridge, London store, centering on the fall-appropriate Carhartt WIP burnt orange shell jacket. This is a limited item that is only available for UK customers, both online and in selected Harvey Nichols stores.
When it’s just wind on the weather agenda, you can afford to go for something a little lighter. From Japanese brand South2 West8 comes a jacket inspired by the traditional outerwear worn by fishermen — a profession in which a strong gale cannot be feared.
For many, the mere word winter brings a shuddering reminder of the dreaded cold. But not us. A dip in temperature means we can take our fits upwards, and in this case, outwards. We’re big fans of a plump puffer, and MKI MIYUKI ZOKU’s lilac number is a current top pick.
Unless you happen to be residing in one of the planet’s driest regions, a downpour is a dead cert between September and December. When the rain comes down, hoods go up and that’s a good place to start. Our hooded, rain-resisting choices include the shell jacket from White Mountaineering. Designed with every outdoor wear fan’s favorite word — GORE-TEX — this trusty jacket is fully water-repellent.
