Braille Festival Wear

Style :

Festival season is nearly upon us - an Glastonbury, if you follow my Twitter, is getting organised - and London based menswear label Braille have designed the prefect festival survival poncho, an essential addition to any festival go-er’s wardrobe.

This contemporary poncho is made from waxed cotton keeping it light enough to cope with the humidity and heat of the dance tent, as well as protecting from sudden showers at the main stage. The Braille poncho comes complete with zips to free your dancing arms and pockets to keep your festival essentials secure. At the end of the weekend the garment can be machine washed unlike most waxed-cotton garments. The poncho is available on their online shop here

The festival poncho is part of Braille’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection, Colt, inspired by the modernist design of Palm Springs juxtaposed with the natural landscape of Agua Caliente Canyon. Colt is the second collection from the independent London menswear label.

Reflecting the mountainous, desert landscape of the region, the collection is best translated in the contours of the pleated Blazers, Jackets and Rain Coats, sculpting the torso and leaving a light and lean lower half. Luminescent tweeds give visibility to the night explorer, whilst maintaining elegance and subtlety. Shirts in sheer cotton in sun-faded husk, loosely
reference the palm oasis. Waxed cotton outerwear protects from heavy rain and extended sleeve plackets ease motion for the adventurous and active gentlemen.
