With the arrival of falling leaves comes Bridleway’s new clothing collection, offering some fantastic autumn/winter looks.
With easy-to-style pieces and great colours we just know you’ll adore this collection. To give you the low down, we’ve asked our designers to share their inspiration behind the range – straight from the horse’s mouth!
So, when designing a new range for Bridleway, what is most important to you?
“Practicality is key. When designing the new 2018 range, and all of our previous clothing, we always make sure that the clothing is fit for a busy equestrian lifestyle. Riders need to be comfortable as their wardrobe is always put to the test! The fabric and the fit play a big part in this, we test all of our styles and sizes on riders to ensure we achieve optimum comfort.”
We’ve seen some new colours make an appearance in this catalogue, what’s the story behind those?
“Well, practicality is great but we all want to look fabulous too! This year’s colour palette brings together a traditional navy with a sage green. We wanted to step away from the norm and bring in a new staple colour, and sage was the perfect option. It is smart and stylish, and also looks great with denim – making it perfect leisure wear too! All that topped off with pink lining and trims… Who doesn’t love a little pop of pink?! Not us!”
What did you have in mind when designing the new range?
“We wanted this compact range to provide everything you need for daily equestrian life. We focused on layering options, so that you are covered whatever the weather. Mornings can be cold, so this is where the Willow Padded Jacket and the Cherry Pom Pom Hat come in handy, but as the day goes on and you build up a sweat riding you can rely on the Rowan Midlayer & Sycamore Baselayer to keep you at the perfect temperature! The versatility of this range also means you can dust off the straw, swap your breeches for your favourite jeans and you’ll look great away from the yard too.”
From the sporty Sycamore Baselayer to the lightweight, padded Willow Jacket, meet the Bridleway 2018/19 clothing collection – making layering, and looking good, effortless.
Sporty and functional with a round neck and flat lock seams, the Sycamore is the perfect foundation for any riding outfit. Multi-stretch fabric and moisture wicking properties ensure you can work hard without compromising on comfort.
Wear with a pair of riding tights or breeches, choosing additional top layers and accessories to match the weather. Looks great when co-ordinated with the Hickory Hat Cover or Cherry Pom Pom Hat.
Offering a flattering, fitted silhouette, this lightweight jacket is perfect for multi-layered looks. Whether you wear it riding, or as part of a casual, leisure look, this sporty top will help keep you at the optimum temperature.
Slip the Rowan Midlayer over the Sycamore baselayer to create a lightweight combo perfect for riding. In cooler weather, add the Pine Wind Soft Shell and a coordinated Cherry Pom Pom hat for extra warmth on the yard.
Pine Wind Shell Jacket
This smart jacket is at home anywhere you are. Wind resistant with a lined collar and colour-popping contrast trims, this navy jacket is a definite wardrobe winner.
Whilst this jacket works with any casual outfit, we love how great it looks styled with a baselayer, midlayer and a pair of comfy riding tights. With its pink accents, this jacket looks fabulous when coordinated with the Hickory Hat Cover and pink pom pom!
Willow Padded Jacket
Whether you’re headed to the shops or out riding, this padded jacket offers a flattering, contoured fit. Finished off with gorgeous pink accents, elasticated cuffs and a handy inside pocket – perfect for storing your phone or hiding some polos.
This jacket looks fantastic with denim, just add the Cherry Pom Pom Hat (we’d pick pink or sage) for the perfect cosy autumn/winter outfit. For riding, wear the Willow Jacket over a baselayer, with a pair of winter riding tights, and you’re ready for a cosy winter hack.
Maple Winter Riding Tights
An undoubtable winter essential. Fleece lined multi-stretch fabric and flat lock seams ensure your legs are comfortable and cosy on colder days. The streamlined leg cuffs are perfect for tucking into your favourite pair of boots.
Be warned, you’ll never want to take these off in winter. You can pair any of our new tops or jackets with these tights and know you’ve got the perfect riding outfit ready to go. Inject a bit of extra colour with the pink Cherry Pom Pom Hat or Hickory Hat Cover with pink pom pom, plus some Hemlock Socks for cosy toes.
