KINGSLAND BODY WARMERS
The Body Warmer, vest or gilet as it also is called, has been in every Kingsland winter collection since 2000. The Oxford Dictionary describes it as a sleeveless quilted or padded jacket worn as an outdoor garment.
Our Head of Design, Lin Kingsrød, who founded Kingsland back in 1999, was initially inspired by other physical outdoor activities where the arms needed flexibility and freedom to move and stretch. “A body warmer is a perfect garment intended to keep you warm and comfortable.
I wear body warmers all year round! A thinner one on chilly summer evenings or a heavy down vest during the freezing cold Norwegian winters. I love that you can wear just about anything underneath whether it’s a long sleeve shirt, knitwear, a show jacket, or even a fancy dress!” says Lin with great enthusiasm.
The Kingsland Body Warmers for the Winter 2018 are stylish, functional, light weight, made in the high-quality materials with the latest trends in mind. The outcome is a brilliant combination of durable fabrics and delicate designs proving once again that Kingsland creates the very essentials of equestrian fashion.
The unisex style, Morton, has a DuPont insulation, meaning that it is as warm as down but dries quicker after being soaked or washed. The Tilley body warmer with hood, for ladies, has a chic, shiny fabric and is insulated with down. In our Dressage Collection, the Cipoletti gilet has a standing collar with detachable faux fur collar, making it a super comfortable, yet stylish garment for both riding and leisure activities.
