designer notes: the velocity jacket

posted on Monday, 21st February 2011 | find under 
I envisioned a 3 in 1 run jacket that could be worn in all weathers, was to be technical in every way, and had to be feminine and cool. When my vision became a reality I couldn’t have asked for a better jacket.
The Bolero jacket has a gathered arm hole which has reflective piping encircling it. This creates a flattering, functional silhouette. The gathering around the arm hole creates volume across the back and shoulders allowing for free movement when running. The reflective piping provides high visibility when running in the dark. The shape allows you to run with protection where you want it when working out outdoors.

The gilet is a mixture of shower proof woven and technical mesh. The shape of this gilet has a flattering silhouette, with a detailed empire line softly gathered across the. The shower proof, woven front of the gilet protects you from the outdoor elements. The narrow shoulders of the gilet lead to a mesh racer back providing uninhibited movement while running. 
Pair both these items together to create a protective and functional run jacket for the colder and changeable weather we experience here in the UK.

Hope you like it!
