Puffa Proves Perfect
With winter fast approaching it is time to check out your winter woollies, jackets and other outdoor clothing.
Purple seems to be the in colour this season and every clothes shop, interior design outlet and even shoe store seem to have limitless rows of purple garments, artefacts and accessories on offer. Puffa are definitely in vogue with their Blackberry coloured Woodbridge Womens Microfibre Jacket, £85.
Fiona, who is modelling the item, with the aid of Kia, her Lab, finds Puffa clothing the ideal label for her busy, outdoor lifestyle. Running a riding school on the family farm on the Kintyre Peninsula, Argyll, she is constantly working out in the elements. Bitter winds whip off the surrounding hills and coastline and Fiona makes sure that the horses are not the only ones well rugged up for winter!
Puffa pioneered quilted clothing over 30 years ago and they have prided themselves ever since in 'providing a unique combination of classic style and durability.’ The latest additions to the Puffa stable are not only pleasing to the eye but also up to their exacting standards.
Pictured with her horses, Fiona is wearing Puffa’s Original Microfibre Gilet in teal which retails at £55. Providing a good thick layer to keep in the heat of the core body, a gilet allows Fiona unrestricted arm movement while she’s working with her horses. This one is shaped with a flattering women’s outline and has a useful two-way front zip for maximum comfort and draft exclusion when riding.
Best of all, but not always available in women’s jackets, the thoughtful folks at Puffa have included an inside zipped pocket for all those things we don’t want to drop out of our pockets or scatter from the height off a horse like keys, loose change or mobiles!
Like the Woodbridge jacket, the Gilet is available in sizes 8 to 18, has a tough polyester/nylon exterior and is beautifully insulated with their trademarked, easy-care Puffafill.
Fiona likes the flexibility of the Gilet on top of the Westgate Womens Logo Hoody. Too hot now? There’s another layer to go. Shown here in Dark Brown, the hoody has a front patch pocket and large Puffa embroidery on the front, is made of 100% cotton heavy brushed back jersey, and the hood is lined with striped fabric. Sizes 8-16, £55.
