Earlier, Claire rounded up some of our favourite places to buy rainwear. Well, we have a new name to add into the mix – the brilliantly monikered Grass & Air. Winners of the Bubble Rising Star award, the label was conceived by school uniform specialists David Luke, so, as you’d expect, the waterproofs are expertly engineered and, as a result, actually waterproof to 5000mm. They also have storm flaps over zips, bonded seams and reflective elements, to ensure children are safe and seen. We particularly like the detailing on the Stomper suit, £38, and the Rainster jacket, £40.
Kitty was kindly gifted a pair of the navy wellies, £18, and thoroughly put them through their paces at a muddy puddled Wakehurst Place at the weekend – the fleece lining ensured her toes were toasty and they were declared really comfortable. I like the illustration on the insole that little ones can join together to help them ensure they have the boots the right way round to put on. But, the best bit, certainly as far as Kitty is concerned, is the colour-changing element – the raindrops change from white to coloured when they are wet. They also come in a handy drawstring bag, making it super easy to transport them ready for outdoor adventures. A great new addition to the rainwear market, and reasonably priced – nothing is more than £60.
