As the evenings draw in and the mercury slides down the thermometer, we find solace in cosiness and comfort. The seasons are shifting and we prepare for the thrills and chills of Winter.
But before the pavements and fields begin to glisten with fresh, crisp frost, we get the chance to revel in the yellows, reds and oranges of Summer’s last hurrah - Autumn.
To us, Autumn is all about getting amongst the leaf streaked tracks and trails, being buffeted by the wind and shrugging off showers by day, and settling down in complete comfort in the evening.
Autumn means thick parka coats and technical waterproof jackets, the rain splashing against the fabric then beading up and gently trickling off the cuff to the tricky terrain below. It’s about being draped in plush fleece and wrapped in cosy insulated jackets, teamed with bobbled beanies and snug scarves and gloves, tucking into toasty seasonal soup as the still distant darkness draws in.
A shift in the seasons represents new opportunities and new realms of exploration, the last chances to immerse yourself in nature as the year slowly reaches its’ nadir. It won’t be long before the trees are bare, the sky is moody and the mind begins to wander to the box in the attic marked “Christmas”.
This summer has seen several new names investing heavily into fabric development once again, disrupting the status quo to get you walking, hiking, running and cycling to the best of your ability.
This season we aim to provide the means to create the ultimate layering system suitable for any conditions, including technical shell jackets that boast the latest GORE-TEX Technology. We’ve assembled a range that features the most cutting edge brands including The North Face, adidas and an exclusive, highly technical Sprayway collection.
So as the summer sun starts to wane and the leaves begin to fall, let Blacks help you gear up for the season ahead.
This Autumn sees a fresh collection of outdoor Womenswear to help you start exploring new surroundings and take on new adventures. Gear up for the shift in seasons with technical layering essentials that suit you and your environment - for whatever Autumn may throw at you.
