You can roll out on the wrong side of the bed every day if you’re going to rock this simple but effective luxury leisure wear.

Heavy Jackets – The Edit

It doesn’t seem like more than a week ago that we were writing about all things summery: festivals, holidays, sunglasses.  But here we are, with winter fully upon us, bringing with it shorter days, icy winds and all kinds of weather to tackle. Fortunately, whether rain, snow or shine, we’re here to get you kitted out for the season with a well-curated selection of jackets and coats to last you through this winter and well beyond.

North Face Nuptse 1992 Jacket

THE NORTH FACE NUPTSE 1992 JACKET

A truly iconic piece from The North Face’s archives, the Nupste 1992 jacket takes inspiration from the original, while upgrading the fabrics and fit to more modern standards. Crafted from a lightweight nylon shell with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish fashioned into classic large baffles, and generously filled with cosy goose down to combat the cold in style. Various zip pockets keep your essentials safe and secure, while the whole look is finished with the iconic retro Dome logo patch to the left sleeve.

NAPAPIJRI SKIDOO 1 JACKET

Pullover jackets are having a moment right now, and for good reason: they’re perfect for layering for that retro outdoor sportswear look, as well as being designed to keep your core warmer than front-fastening styles. Napapijri’s Skidoo jacket lays claim to be the first ever jacket designed in this way, and is a staple of the brand’s outerwear range. The shell is water-repellent while the body is both lined with fleece and padded with Thermore filling for the ultimate in winter-proof apparel.

PATAGONIA FITZ ROY DOWN PARKA

Designed for serious outdoor use, yet with off-duty good looks, the Fitz Roy parka utilises Pertex Quantum fabrics throughout, which are lightweight, durable and water resistant, as well as letting the 800-fill goose down filling loft properly to maximise its warmth retention. So whether you’re scaling peaks on a weekend or schlepping between home and the pub on a night, this is one jacket that will never let you down in either the style or performance departments.

Of course, the above is just a small selection of our jackets and coats. Find these and many more instore and online at Aphrodite Clothing today.

Best Seller: Why You Love the Napapijri Rainforest Jacket

Napapijri Rainforest Jacket

Napapijri has been a world-renowned outerwear designer since 1990 when the first Skidoo jacket was introduced. The brand holds Nordic exploration and adventure at the core of its success, with the word Napapijri being a variation of the Finnish word for ‘Arctic Circle’ and the half positive, half negative logo representing the North and South poles. The Norwegian flag is also used as a representation of this, due to Norway being Europe’s northern-most country and also the birthplace of many 20th Century explorers.

At Aphrodite, we are proud to stock a number of Napapijri’s iconic pieces, and season after season they continue to be one of our best-selling brands.

One sure fire winner from the brand is the Napapijri Rainforest Jacket. This classic windbreaker is constructed with innovative technical fabrics to ensure it has a fit comparable to no other. Instantly recognisable by the branded kangaroo pocket, the Rainforest Jacket is available in several styles and colourways to suit the unpredictable British weather.

Napapijri Rainforest Jacket

For Autumn/Winter 17, Napapijri have revamped the Rainforest Jacket to suit harsher weather conditions. The Rainforest Winter 1 Jacket is fully lined with a soft fleece material, making the already wind-proof design even warmer. The lining extends into the adjustable hood, which has a high neck collar with zip down closure. The side seam features a zip closure vent to allow for extra breathability. Available in 4 colourways, it is a timeless addition to any winter wardrobe.

6 Must Have Lightweight Jackets

We have gathered together 6 of our favourite lightweight jackets that we think are absolute must haves for your Spring/Summer 17 wardrobe.


This performance pullover is a lightweight and simple jacket created in a 2.5 layer 100% recycled nylon which has a waterproof/breathable barrier and DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Crafted in a regular fit, it packs into the front torso pocket. The center front zip reaches half way down the jacket to where the jacket changes to red, it is concealed with a minimal-welt exterior and interior storm flap. Other key features are the elasticized cuffs, microfleece-lined neck, draw-cord hem, adjustable roll-down hood and finished off with a Patagonia logo badge on the chest.


A bold statement piece from CP Company this season, the Watch Viewer Jacket returns in a crisp white colourway. The key elements to this jacket are its ‘T-Mack 3 Layer Waterproof Construction’, a poppered stormflap over the branded zip frontal fastening, adjustable cuff fastening, roll away hood for those rare days without a down pour, and various pockets to the front of the jacket and the lining.


The Membrana 3L TC fabric from Stone Island is a 3 layer light performance fabric. It is crafted by using an opaque nylon outer face bonded to a breathable water resistant membrane which is protected by an imperceptible polyester base. The unique colouration is derived from the garment dyeing procedure that the fabric undergoes. A fixed hood protects you in the harsher weather whilst contrasting zippers adorn the front and 2x zip pockets. The removable Stone Island compass patch badge to the arm finishes off this fantastic piece.

A versatile outer layer, this pullover anorak is super lightweight and packable to help keep you prepared for the unpredictable weather. Adjustable hood and hem for the perfect fit, with a handy front pocket to store your essentials. Finished with classic Napapijri details in a tonal print.

Made from a lightweight 100% Polyamide regular fit, it is a great transitional piece for Spring/Summer 17. The timeless design features a full meshed lining, full frontal zip, 2x side zips with reflective strips, elastic cuffs, drawstring to the hem and BOSS branding tag to the side seam.

A lightweight, pack-able outer layer for the unpredictable weather, the Jean-Claude is constructed from nylon with an adjustable hood, and features striped, elasticated trim for the perfect fit, and enough pocket storage for any of your weekend adventures.

A Guide to Wearing Casual Sportswear

So, it’s not exactly new news, but if you haven’t already heard it is now acceptable to wear your casual sportswear clothing out in public, in social places! Yes, you heard that right, this trend has been coming out the woodwork for two years now and we are here to give you that little bit guidance on how to ace this trend.

Now this doesn’t mean the clothing you laze on the couch with covered in stains! You still have to put some thought into this. But don’t worry we have cut it down into simple sections and even better we have selected a few of our favorite pieces.

Let me start by telling you, although it is casual sportswear it doesn’t mean everything must be exclusively sports labeled brands, even designer brands are flaunting their inner sportiness.

Tops

Starting from the basics with a simple tee, any block colour will work fine, even throw in a graphic front to mix it up a bit. Feeling a bit cold don’t want a jacket? Try a sweatshirt, a different option instead of a hoody. Again, like the t shirt, block colours work best but we always make exceptions for a good graphic logo front!
A decent polo doesn’t go a miss either long or short sleeve mix it up in bold colours, or go for a more subtle monochrome both work and they look great under a bomber jacket.

Jackets & Hoodies

An essential piece for your outfit is your outerwear. Start with the base of your outfit, what colour is your bottoms or your top? This is a good start to match colours or if you’re feeling bold add a pop of colour. Try not to add more and more colours though as you don’t want to look like a walking rainbow!
The bomber jacket is a great go to especially how they tend to come in a wide range of colours and they are a perfect match with a pair of slim fit joggers.
Hoodies have got to be the holy grail of casual sportswear, the comfiest piece of clothing possibly out there and it fits in with our trend. Now ditch your old scraggy hoody, you don’t want to fall at the last hurdle so opt for something clean and crisp.
Finally, we love a track top, the ideal candidate to layer with. Now don’t worry no running has to be involved wearing these! There are the heavier track jackets like Fred Perry and adidas which go great layered with a plain polo, or think Nike if you’re going for a thinner style. They have the Windrunner series which are great for adding a pop of colour to your outfit.

Bottoms

Ok, so time for bottoms, I think this is the easiest to style, you have two options joggers or shorts. Starting with joggers we love a slim fit jogger it’s just effortlessly cool, comfy and gives off a sophisticated look. But don’t shrug off a baggy jogger these are great for a more relaxed fit and look equally as good. Black, grey or navy are good starting points, try stick for a classic style with cuffed bottoms to show of your sneaks.
Now for shorts, it’s simple just go for a standard style jogger short, classic and casual the perfect exchange for joggers on a hot day.

Footwear

Last but not least, the final step to creating your casual sportswear outfit. Now don’t skip this step and put any old trainers on, you have got this far don’t ruin it now, they are equally as important so carefully think this one through! Black and white are going to be your best bet if your struggling to match but this is also the part of your outfit where you don’t actually have to be so subtle so go daring if you want to.
As long as your sneakers are clean you have already won. Gone are the days of mucky trainers.

Napapijri Brand Guide

With a deeply rooted heritage, Napapijri are one of the few brands in the world who can claim to have a true cult following. With the tricks of their trade being learnt the hard way, in some of the harshest conditions on earth, Napapijri have steadily built a name for themselves as one of the most stylish ways to beat any weather that the world can throw at you, thanks to their self proclaimed vocation for blending and urban inner city style with technical elements that will withstand anything.

Napapijri Logo

Founded at the end of the 1980’s, Napapijri was originally a project conceived by a company based in the Aosta valley of the Italian Alps- Green Sport Monte Bianco. Inspired by and named after the Finish word for the Arctic Pole Circle, Napapijri was an expression of curiosity in the best manner to supply a generation that becoming more and more curious about their surroundings- Napapijri was crafted to cater for the brave and spontaneous outdoor creative’s. There was no better surrounding to develop Napapijri. The Aosta valley, despite being strikingly beautiful, is a bleak, dangerous environment, dominated by the snow covered shadow of one of Europe’s tallest mountains, Mount Blanc. It became the perfect inspiration for Green Sport Monte Bianco to study how Napapijri should perform, as well as grow as a brand.

Napapijri has always stood for freedom, and the opportunity to be able to go anywhere and do everything. Travel and having the chance to experience life to the fullest were, and still are the core values of the brand, as it remains ever respectful to the environment, the planet, and everybody who lives on it. Much more than just an opportunity to own the equipment that can allow you venture to the furthest flung corners of the globe, the Napapijri brand acts as encouragement to the world to go outside and discover. It is an inspiration to anyone in the cities and towns, who need to feel the spirit of adventure and escape the day to day, whether they don a Napapijri back pack, parka, or hat.

Napapijri Jacket

Starting out with a simple vision, Napapijri’s first adventure was into back packs and luggage. Technologically innovative, in both the way they were constructed and the materials they used, Napapijri bags were versatile pieces that catered for and quickly became the favourite of the demanding traveler who needed a piece of luggage that would match their exacting standards.  Their bags were utilitarian, and the perfect reflection of the harsh environments that they were designed to thrive in. To carry a Napapijri bag was a statement that you were ready for any eventuality, in any place. Riding the huge success of their early advancements with varied rugged materials and completely functional design, Napapijri began to experiment once again. They applied their profound knowledge of textiles and colours to craft an entire collection of apparel, including ready to wear items ranging from heavy duty winter jackets to thick knits that would take the sting out of the coldest of weather. Again, the success of their new venture was huge. Bearing the Napapijri name and flag as their banner, the clothing line soon became synonymous with a quality product that would stand fast in any situation, as the labels deeply conceptual look immortally framed functionality with style and comfort.

Napapijri
The Napapijri story started to spread, and soon, the brand was cropping up all over the world. Its vast technical qualities meant that any of their products were at home in any environment- from the Arctic Circle where the brand took the inspiration for its name, to the cities and towns of the world and even the seas, deserts and mountains- Napapijri took the everyday wardrobe and turned it on its head, making it strong enough to succeed, survive and thrive anywhere on earth.

Sure enough, the unmissable blend of high quality creation and simplistic yet iconic outdoor design bought Napapijri a lot of attention. Worn by the likes of Ashton Kucher, Napapijri stands for much more than technical innovation. Despite the harsh rigors of the environment in which the brand learnt to ply its trade, Napapijri manages to continually prove itself as a trend setting fashion giant that just so happens to have the capabilities to stand up to some of the harshest environments on earth thanks to the lessons it learnt firsthand.
