There’s dressing for wet weather, then there’s dressing for wet weather the K-WAY. Léon-Claude Duhamel created this originally Paris-based brand in 1965, having been inspired to keep people dry after watching inhabitants of the French capital scuttle about in the rain with awkward umbrellas in hand. From this initial observation, K-WAY’s lightweight, comfortable and completely waterproof rain jacket was born. Today, the brand is part of the BasicNet Group’s portfolio, and K-WAY is such a well-known label that it appears in the Italian dictionary. How’s that for kudos? K-WAY’s range has developed from that original, lightweight raincoat to a collection of clothing and accessories for men and women, that all adopt the brand’s signature commitment to practicality and function.
