Six Cold Weather Wardrobe Essentials

We’ve got you covered – literally – for the wild weather ahead.

By Terry Christodoulou 30/04/2020

With dreary wet weather forecast to drench most of Australia’s east coast, and winter just around the corner, it’s time to ready your wardrobe.

Here, six pieces to keep you dry in style.

 

Mackintosh Dunkeld Bonded Cotton Raincoat

Mackintosh

If you don’t own a Mackintosh, you’re not really prepared for the rain. Made in England and Scotland (let’s face it who better for rainwear), the strategically bonded, water-tight cotton construction makes this coat completely rainproof. Coupled with eyelets under the arms for ventilation and its streamlined, enduring design – it’s a must for the wet weather.

Approx. $1830; mrporter.com

 

Alexander McQueen Skull Umbrella

Here’s one way to ensure you don’t get caught in the rain – Alexander McQueen’s skull handle logo print umbrella. Touting the McQueen skull motif moulded and polished black at the handle – which makes for easy identification – the Italian made umbrella uses a press-stud strap to secure itself together once folded. Yes, it’s worth the coin.

$765; farfetch.com.au

 

Moncler X Craig Green Coolidge Colour-Blocked Down-Filled Jacket

Born out of Moncler’s genius collaboration with designer Craig Green, this grey colour blocked Coolidge jacket is made from a technical polyamide and filled with down and feathers. With Green’s reputation for technical outerwear, the jacket also features a detachable hood, four zip pockets and press-stud adjustable cuffs to keep the cold out.

Approx. $2395; matchesfashion.com

 

Church’s Macfarlane 2 Highland Grain Lace-Up Boot

These hard-wearing, and waxed full-grain leather boots from Church’s not only lift you from the puddled streets, but also elevate your style. The Goodyear (yes, that Goodyear) constructed, storm welted boots sit on a resilient rubber sole with brogue detailing and metal eyelets making it the ideal multi-purpose boot.

$1071; farfetch.com.au

 

Brunello Cucinelli Ribbed Cashmere Sweater

 

A staple of Brunello Cucinelli’s collections – pictured here in a classic grey – the English ribbed cashmere sweater will serve you well for seasons to come. Made from combed cashmere and crafted in Italy, the ribbed stitch traps warmth and makes for a comfortable, light and warm wear.

$2830; brunellocucinelli.com

 

Le Chameau Chasseur Neoprene Lined Boot

If you plan on dancing in the rain, best be prepared with a pair of what we’d call, ahem, gumboots, from French house Le Chameau. Lined in neoprene, the watertight zipper and press stud tightening strap make these a breeze to take on and off. The boots are also fitted with Kevlar fibre (correct, Kevlar) in the toe to fight abrasion and keep you dancing.
