It’s Spring. It’s the UK. Leaving the house without a coat is not an option and a Mac is always a go-to style for these unpredictable British climes. And now there is a new Mac on the scene. Meet the Protected Species Mac – these are waterproofs reinvented.
The very last of the first edition Protected Species West End Macs are only available at Lux Boutique Outlet for £122, reduced from £245.
What’s to love?
Designed and engineered by women who know what it is like to live in our rainy UK cities, this is urban high performance outerwear specifically for women and suitable for wear anywhere. The soft, luxurious feel of the fabric, combined with aesthetics and the comfort of four-way stretch offers feminine practicality in its purest form.
Protected Species fabric technology separates it from the crowd. Every piece in the collection comes with a waterproof guarantee. Liquids literally pour off it yet it feels luxuriously soft. The technology small print says each coat has a waterproof rating of 15,000mm and a breathability rating of 15000gm. Every piece in the collection comes with a waterproof guarantee.
Unfussy and sophisticated each detail is thought through. The hood stays up. Laser cutting and welding gives sleekness. Drawcords give shape and protect against the elements. Oh and unlike other Macs there is no rustle. As The Guardian says: “A masterpiece of design…it’s all in the details.”
And The Women Who Love Them?
These are no high maintenance coats. They can be machine washed at 30 degrees making them a wardrobe icon that all women will adore. Certainly the Lux Boutique Outlet team have a number between them (try every colour). Celebrity fans include Sara Cox and Jenni Falconer. And in The Evening Standard: “This raincoat from Protected Species is one of the most lux we have ever seen, but it’s much more than a marvellous mac.”
