Henri Lloyds Womens Collection 2012

by Colin Burgess on 10 May 2012
TP 1 Vista Jacket Colin Burgess
Henri Lloyd was one of the first technical clothing manufacturers to design and produce a women’s technical waterproof sailing jacket, that was in 1986 and the jacket was called – The Voyager. The jacket was constructed from Bri-Nylon and incorporated the Henri Lloyd characteristics of taped seams, storm flap zip and a foldaway hood, as with the current range, the jacket came in a variety of sizes and colour’s designed specifically for women.

Since then, other important women’s products have included the Women’s Offshore Jacket and the TP3 Women’s Reflex jacket and hi-fits. Henri Lloyd has always endeavoured to introduce women specific products into our technical range each year.

In 2006, Henri Lloyd was recognised at METS for our Women’s TP2 Phantom Jacket, which was produced specifically for women, the jacket received a special mention at the Dame Awards where the judging panel congratulated the Henri Lloyd design team for recognising the need for bespoke protection for women in the sailing world

Sailing is one of the only sports when men and women can compete on even terms and at the same level, also more women than ever now take part in sailing, Henri Lloyd value the importance of women in the sport, and understand that in order to perform to your best potential, garments need to fit correctly, gone are the days where women will accept wearing men's garments in smaller sizes.

For 2012, Henri Lloyd has a collection of women’s jackets, which have been produced just for the female sailing market; these include Gortex Ocean Explorer, TP2 Ventura, TP1 vista, Blue Waters Jacket and the Transom Half Zip.

The range benefits from certain features, for example, the jacket design and shape takes into account the smaller stature of the female figure, the arms are further articulated and are shorter and more slender, the range of colours for the Transom Half Zip, Blue Waters Jacket are more feminine
