Blaest Fall/Winter 2017

The Blæst line was born in rainy, coastal Bergen, Norway, when local designer Lisbeth Lillebøe asked herself: Must women endure the region’s 200-plus days of rain and wind dressed like fishermen on the high seas?

Lillebøe’s answer was no, and her elegant response to the elements was a collection of cheerful rainwear that provided a stylish solution for dealing with nature’s soggiest extremes.

The quality construction of each Lillebøe design is evident in the details: durable fabrics; cozy linings; comfortable hoods; colourful trim accents; heavy-duty zippers; and sealed, waterproof seams. Blæst also offers funky rubber boots produced by Viking, which is the leading Norwegian boot manufacturer founded in 1920.

Blæst coats received the Award for Design Excellence from the Norwegian Design Council in 2008, and Chris James is proud to be among the leading fashion stores in more than 20 countries that carry these coats.

You’ll weather any storm in style with Blæst Bylillebøe rainwear!
