Emma talks below about the new pattern, her favourite new collection piece and looking forward to more freedom.
What an extraordinary contrast today with this time last year: after the strangeness of months of isolation i am longing for the lifting of restrictions: I want to see my family and my friends, just so much.
Meanwhile, I’m reining in my impatience (with difficulty) but looking forward to FREEDOM.
The beautiful temperate climate in England means we have a gorgeous and rich diversity of wildflowers which are both inspiring and well worth celebrating. My daily walks have been essential in getting through this long, strange time. The past few months have given us a deeper sense of the imperative need to cherish the wilderness, our green spaces, and lovely wildflowers. Dandelions for example, with their lion-like faces of cheery golden yellow definitely signal wide green places and inspire happy thoughts.
No matter the season, one always needs a Barbour jacket, I find it an essential piece of kit for English life. Come rain or shine especially this year, I aim for a long daily walk and love nothing more than admiring the changing light and landscapes. I always feel better after a couple of hours out of doors. During the warmer months, I love spotting the wildflowers in fields, verges, and dandelions are so resourceful you are likely to see them sprout in any old crack in the pavement.
I am partial to my favourite wax jacket; I feel armed for anything when I am wearing it. I love this season’s version with a large hood, deep pockets and the cheery Meadows design of the lining which features my favourite wildflowers.
