Perk up dull days with Insane In The Rain's fun-all-over jackets – made entirely of recycled plastics.
Abstaining from chocolate, temperatures are in double digits but it’s still sodding raining. Situation normal for April, right? OK it has pretty much rained every day so far this year, but who’s counting?
Anyhoo, I’ve found a cool anorak (yes there is such a thing, naysayers) made from recycled plastic, it’s cut to hide the few extra Easter pounds and comes in a range of stylish prints. Great for festivals and helps kids spot you in a National Trust throng.
Choose from pastel-hued geometrics, pop art prints, electric florals, contemporary camo or polka dots. All will keep you dry; all will make you smile.
This burgeoning new brand was launched just last year by globetrotting, ocean-loving brother and sister duo, Hannah and Jack Edwards – and it’s all about style with soul.
The fabric for their jackets is produced by expert, eco-manufacturers in Taiwan (a forward thinking nation when it comes to recycling) and each of their eye-catching toppers is made using 17-23 recovered and recycled plastic bottles.
She must be on to something, as her ‘happy jackets’ are now stocked in trend-setting boutiques from East London (Merchantile) to Porth (Roo’s Beach). Look out for them on the festival circuit this summer. What could be better for a rainy British gig!
Insane In The Rain also makes mini macs for your small folk and men’s jackets too, so the whole family’s covered. And we’ll all see you coming!
