If you’ve ever spent a bit of time in Paris then you’ll know that just like here in the UK it has the tendency to rain, sometimes quite heavily regardless of the time of year. With that in mind, way back in 1965 and young Parisian named Leon Claude Duhamel set about devising a jacket that was waterproof enough to keep heavy rain at bay and be lightweight enough to carry around with you when not needed. And thus the K-Way Leon jacket was born and now 5o odd years later it’s something of a French style classic that no mooch around the Marais or pique-niques down the parc should be without. For SS18 Scotts have a half zip, smock style version of this iconic jacket made from ripstop nylon and zip pouch pocket to the front which means you can stash it away into a little pouch and maybe even put it on the end of a baguette Dick Whittington style. Although he was a Londoner wasn’t he so maybe pretend you’re one of the Musker Hounds instead.
