Collections the 2 December 2010 by Romano as "the garagerocker"

Penfield Black Bear Collection put an emphasis on contemporary design. It’s a premium collection based on Penfield’s classic pieces.

The Anoka 3 Layer rain jacket and Kasson 3 Layer mountain parka.

The press release only talks about the Anoka (left), the Kasson is more my cup of tea. It’s both water resistant and windproof. The parka features flats front pockets and adjustable hood and a cool contrasting lining. One last asset : it’s 3 layer 5000/5000 fabric which just means waterproof, and it looks naaaasty!

The Lakeville is a new piece of AW10 collection. It reflects Penfield spirit well. This is more or less a classic parka. The soft leather soulders especially catch our attention and give the jacket a thing. It also has an adjustable drawstring, and adjustable cuffs. On the right, every one’s identifying the classic Rockford down jacket released now “premiumly”.

To finish, we’ve got two other classics. This time, Penfield adds woolen versions of them, inspiring warmness. Their feature the classic “leather shoulder yoke”. An their sober colors are confirming Penfield’s turn in luxury.

Nevertheless the prices remain affordable for such luxury looking pieces. Penfield is definitely a sure bet, offering us a perfect compromise between price and quality keeping the brand identity. We love Black Bear! The pess release has a nice sentence to conclude : “Be outdoors, be warm, look a million dollars…”
