Rohan AW16 collection

Rohan’s new Autumn/Winter 2016 collection is now in stores and like previous years, it continues to offer both style and practicality.

New for AW16 is a mix of easy-care travel clothing along with a line-up of tailored items for city goers.

Innovations include Durable Water Repellency™, which forces water droplets to ‘bead up’ and run off the outside of the fabric.

There’s also a new fabric called Barricade, which is a membrane that responds to the wearer’s body temperature to avoid the sweaty, steamy feeling that conventional waterproofs give.

The new collection also includes casualwear and sportswear made with Rohan’s merino wool blend.

Here’s a few of the highlights:

Men’s Fall Line Jacket

Men’s Newtown Mac

The Daylite Vest is the ultimate wind resistant and water repellent vest. Designed to be super practical, this active vest reflects its high-performance pedigree.

Available for men in Black and Coal for women for £127.00.

Women’s Northshore Coat
As the weather gets more unpredictable and the temperature drops, the fully waterproof, wadded, three quarter length Northshore Coat is perfect when you’re never quite sure what to expect. This coat includes Rohan’s Barricade™ membrane, fully taped seams and Durable Water Repellency™ ensuring complete protection against changing weather. With two generous outside pockets and secure inside zipped compartment, the Northshore is designed to keep the wearer, and everything else, warm and dry.

This ultra-classic double breasted pea coat remains a wardrobe staple embodying features such as a fully lined quilted interior and two internal pockets making for a higher level of warmth and comfort. Available in Deep Navy and Charcoal Marl for £179.

Women’s Cold Harbour Coat
The classic 1950s Cold Harbour Coat is ideal for smart, winter-ready travel. Made from warm, light and completely machine washable tech-wool, this is perfect for folding into a bag and keeping its shape whatever the conditions. In traditional Rohan style, added into the design of this coat are extra touches like brushed linings inside the hand pockets, a high-wicking fully lined inner, and a full zip closure behind the button placket to keep some of the wind out. Available in Deep Navy for £149.00

Women’s Homestead Shirt

The secret to the casual Homestead Shirt is Rohan’s newly developed and advanced Thermocore™ fabric. Featuring a hollow-core polyester that’s much warmer, tougher, more breathable and much quicker to dry than cotton it keeps insulating, even when it’s wet. The Homestead shirt has a fashionable relaxed cut, and is made with Rohan’s Minimum Layer Construction so it packs down to fill a very small space in any suitcase. Available in Kingfisher Blue, Natural and Ultramarine Check for £59.00

Men’s Newcountry Shirt

The new Newcountry Shirt can be worn as a standard shirt, but also doubles as an over shirt that will protect you from the wind like a jacket, and insulate like a fleece. It’s fully reversible too, one side is made from the popular Airlight™ fabric, and the other is a warm polyester fleece in a bold check pattern ideal for a casual yet stylish travel outfit. The shirt is carefully designed not to look reversed on either side, with snap closures that work on both sides and a double-sided fold over collar. Available in Ranger Green for £79.00

Men’s Stretch Bags
