While I specialise in knitwear design, I am also a British designer, so I wanted to include a raincoat in the Maxted collection. Let's face it, what's more English than a cable knit jumper with a raincoat.
Maxted raincoats come in Bright Navy and Hunter Green and are perfect for a weekend away. They pack down, they're lightweight and they don't take up much room in your weekend bag.
We like to brag that our raincoats are a staple and can be used 365 days of the year, especially if you live in Victoria! They're perfect for exploring. This picture above, is how I often wear mine, back with my Merry people boots, Gorman socks, AS Colour striped T-Shirt, and Assembly Label jeans or shorts.
I'm so proud of this design; it's so functional and a style I've continued through many Maxted seasons.
The seams are heat welded together which means no punctured holes for stitches, ensuring a waterproof finish. The storm flat on the back of the jacket ensures rain flies off the shoulders and does not run down the back. Neatly hidden air vents ensure the raincoat is breathable and comfortable to wear.
Another great thing about the Maxted raincoat is it's Unisex. The picture above is Ed (my husband) and I wearing our coats while walking our dog in Apollo bay, years ago. We still use these raincoats today.
They are machine washable, which is essential for us with our busy lives and love of greasy fish and chips after a beach walk. So, our raincoats still look great, after all these years.
Anyone that has a child knows that going to the park all year round is a must. Above is a picture of Al from Al and Imo wearing our Bright Navy Raincoat with his daughter Goldie. With our raincoat you're protected from the rain, but it's lightweight and fuss-free which makes it ideal for an exhausting run-about-after-kids kind of day.
Our Bright Navy Raincoat looks great styled back with a sage green and mid-to-light denim.
Raincoats always feel a little romantic to me - something about kissing in the rain, maybe. I love LOVE!
