A good jacket can make an outfit. Pair a dress with a trench coat for a classic night time look or opt for a colourful tailored raincoat for both style and practicality. If you’re after soft knitted cardigans, sleek blazers or retro bomber jackets, our independent boutiques have the best for a variety of weather and events. Trouva works with over 150 of London and the UK���������s top boutiques and curates a careful selection of the most stylish jackets. Instead of taking days to wander London’s busy streets and narrow lanes, we’ve brought a treasure trove of unique fashion items online for your convenience. Discover three of our favourite boutiques offering truly unique jackets:
You’ll find both contemporary and retro jackets from The West Village, a womenswear boutique based in Notting Hill. The West Village launched in 1999 and continues to attract a loyal following thanks to its edgy yet feminine styles, with a large focus on prints. The boutique collects fashion items from around the globe to create a selection that is both on-trend and distinctly individual. If you’re a lady who loves to look sharp then you’ll love jackets like the Samsoe khaki biker jacket that comes in goat suede, fully lined and with a fur trim. Another retro fashion item is the IQ Berlin jacket in navy or khaki with a bomber jacket cut, quilted lining and a lambskin collar.
For classic men’s jackets there’s Burrows and Hare. This boutique in Oxfordshire is designed for the modern discerning gentlemen. The brand���s clothing is renowned for being of high quality, with meticulous details and superior materials. The concept behind Burrows and Hares is for customers to buy fewer clothes by investing in high quality and timeless pieces. This 'buy less, buy better' philosophy not only means better quality clothing, but also a reduction in waste and pollution.
For a spring time look from Burrows and Hare you can’t go past the Sunspel Reverse Loopback Cardigan Bomber, which is a modern take on the 1950’s sportswear style jacket. It comes in a dark blue and white mix with soft loopback material. If you prefer something both practical and fun, Burrows and Hare offer a bright yellow raincoat that remains elegant with a tailored look.
Among the streets of Islington and Chiswick you’ll find Wild Swans, a boutique that specialises in Scandinavian fashion, homewares and beauty items. Inside Wild Swans discover an oasis of calm and style away from the bustling streets. Wild Swans stocks items from both new and established Scandi designers who create modern and minimalist looks. The boutique’s name comes from the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale 'The Wild Swans' and is a perfect description of the beautiful and edgy clothing Wild Swans offers. For example, there’s the American Vintage Black Holiester Jacket in a relaxed blazer style with satin finishing for a touch of class. The other jackets in Wild Swans’ collection include long and flowing cardigans, stylish and practical raincoats and a number of standout faux fur jackets to keep you warm in winter.
