The Paige Softshell blends the style of a leather motorcycle jacket with a water-resistant and windproof fabric. Cut in a slightly longer silhouette with gentle stretch so it moves with you throughout your day.
Traditionally, softshell fabric is stiff and feels like neoprene, pair that with boxy silhouettes commonly found in outdoor women’s jackets, and how could we not ask ourselves - can we do this better? We wanted to create a feminine cut jacket that is both soft and strong - something that can withstand the elements, make us feel cozy, and remind us that the female shape is something to be celebrated.
Fabric: Bonded three-layer fabric - fleece on the inside for next-to-skin comfort and warmth, a one-way permeable laminated layer in the middle to allow body moisture to evaporate but not let rain in, heathered knit fabric on the outside for stretch and easeful style. Fit: Follows the curves but allows them to breathe (or eat a pizza). The back of the jacket is 1” longer to adapt to any bending, reaching, biking, or hugging action that could take place during your day. There’s a natural structure to the fabric, which we accentuate in different places with stitching and zippers, and also places where the fabric is encouraged to drape naturally, like in the collar.
The details in this jacket contrast with the visual softness of the fabric using matte black oxide metal YKK zippers and copper translucent snaps. These are repeated throughout the jacket: snaps at the very top and bottom and zippers at the ends of the sleeves.
