Introducing... Lighthouse

Sophie Gibson2 min readProduct News & Reviews

New at Blacks for Spring/Summer 2018, Lighthouse clothing is underpinned by timeless designs and practical features, inspired with the coast in mind. Lighthouse’s parent company, Target Dry, come with a vast amount of experience and have been specialising in durable, waterproof clothing for over 30 years. This experience combined with seaside style create the foundations of Lighthouse clothing.

The Lighthouse ethos is to allow you to be in tune with your surroundings regardless of what the weather throws at you. Cool breezes skimming the surface of the sea, and grey clouds looming overhead require outdoor clothing fit to withstand unpredictable conditions. Bold waterproof coats and quality clothing make up the Lighthouse range, and here we’ve compiled some of our favourite pieces to keep April showers at bay and allow you to embrace the Great British weather.

Women’s Abby Jacket

Encompassing Lighthouse’s inherent nautical theme with a navy and white stripe design, the Abby waterproof jacket is both functional and on trend in a timeless design. Striking wooden buttons encased in a storm flap over the zip ensure winds and bad weather is kept at bay. The removable zipped hood keeps the jacket versatile, great for use in April showers or dry cool days, a rope style drawstring allows a close fit for added weather protection.

Women’s Causeway Top

A complementary blend of both pastel and bright stripes against a classic white really transports your wardrobe into the new season, even if the weather outside doesn’t. The 100% cotton fabric creates a high quality feel that you can sense at the first touch for lasting comfort and durability. Minimalist detailing can be seen throughout the piece, with an understated quarter zipped back and small logo tab, highlighting the attention to detail in each product.


Women’s Bowline Jacket

In a design that stands the test of time, the Bowline jacket, made with a distinctive rubberised polyester fabric, is reminiscent of archaic rubber raincoats. A soft inner lining maximises on comfort, whilst keeping you dry on the outside with extra wet weather protection from a snap fastener lined storm flap. The casual demeanour of the Bowline makes it perfect for daily use but gives you confidence in wet conditions, leaving you prepared for spontaneous coastal outings.
