Weekly Wishlist - Penfield AW '16 Collection

This week Penfield, the iconic American outerwear brand, dropped it's Autumn Winter collection for 2016 so I thought I'd share a few of my favourite pieces.

The Mountain Parka is one of the original pieces from Penfield's first collection and very little has changed but that's no bad thing. It has a classic parka construction and the material although mostly a cotton/nylon mix never feels to plastic or cheap to the touch. In true parka style there's loads of pockets, some of which are so discrete you'll probably take a few weeks to catch 'em all (standard Pokemon reference...) It's available in a variety of bright colours too, which is great for rainy autumn days!
1. Hooded Parka £160    2. Knit Bomber £125    3. Crew Neck Sweat £70    4. Cotton Check Shirt £70 

Penfield have climbed aboard the bomber jacket trend with the Eastport Knit Bomber, made from pure lambswool hence the £125 price tag. It's also got some really nice detailed around the cuffs and zip which make it an Autumn must-have. Also available in navy & black.

The Crew Neck Sweat featuring the iconic Penfield logo is a great addition to the Autumn Winter collection. It's made from super soft 100% cotton including a fleecy lining which feels great. Definitely one for the Wishlist and reasonably priced at £70

Last but by no means least is the Barrhead Check Shirt, which is another 100% cotton piece making it super lightweight and breathable. The cotton has also been brushed giving it more of a 'lived in' feel which looks great, although after a few washes the softness does tend to fade. The Barrhead is listed as classic fit which I wouldn't normally go for but I find Penfield normally fits a size smaller than expected anyway. 

So that's it! Those are my favourite pieces from the Autumn Winter collection. Do you have any favourites? What other brands are looking great this season?
