THE HELVELLYN: DRESSED FOR THE TOP
by Grenfell Digital
Our Head of Design describes this piece as “the perfect hybrid, that’s a bit more contemporary”. It combines important features from the Trenchcoat - the gun flap, epaulettes and sleeve lashes with the parka base. This means that the silhouette is distinct, yet familiar. It gives a degree of casualness to the trench coat; and a greater formality to the parka, resulting in an ideal garment for weekend or workday use. Undoubtedly, a future mens’ classic icon.
Grenfell Cloth, as a wonder cloth and performance fabric, has been available in every conceivable colour over the years. This coat is currently available in a ‘stealth’ black, a versatile dark blue or a lighter iridescent light green.
The Helvellyn also has a button-out liner made from merino wool, which gives it a fantastic versatility for different climatic conditions. This is a coat that cuts a dash through the urban canyons, but its origins mean that it can still deliver protection in more extreme weather scenarios. The coat for all seasons.
