Our coats are anything but ordinary – that’s why we’ve named them after remarkable historical British women who dared to be different. Because being brave never goes out of style.

Boudica

Who was she? 
The original trailblazing rebel. In 61 AD she successfully led a major uprising against the occupying Romans. This Celtic warrior queen sure knew how to stick up for herself.

Distinguishing features 
The wool blend has a soft side. But the reworked checks? They’re fierce.

Emily Brontë

Who was she? 
Nearly 200 years ago in Haworth, Yorkshire, she wrote the ground-breaking Wuthering Heights. This was a time when women didn’t write novels – especially ones with wild heroines. 

Distinguishing features 
Cosy wool-blend fabric, a quilted lining and a fluffy hood. Well-equipped for windswept moors.

Brontë coat

Mary Seacole

Who was she? 
Praised as ‘the original lady with the lamp’ for her heroic nursing. Her offer to volunteer in the Crimean War was rejected, but that didn't deter her and she funded her own voyage across the sea. Once there, she wasn’t afraid to go on to battlefields to care for wounded soldiers.

Distinguishing features 
An updated nautical classic: double-breasted, big round buttons and an unexpected flash of colour under the collar. Will weather whatever life throws at you in unbeatable style.

Seacole coat

Jane Austen

Who was she? 
One of the most famous authors of all time. She published her novels anonymously and had them hailed by a contemporary male critic to be ‘much too clever to be the work of a woman’. She may have had to hide her true identity, but there's no concealing her sparkling wit and unforgettable characters (Mr Darcy, anyone?). 

Distinguishing features 
Your options are open with choice of two collars. Some days, you may feel like timeless navy. Others, you may want to channel your inner Lydia Bennett and get the leopard out.

Austen coat

Helen Caddick

Who was she? 
A Victorian explorer who was determined not to stay at home, and instead set off on her own to see the world. She kept a detailed diary of her experiences – not one to read if you have an aversion to creepy crawlies.

Distinguishing features 
Sporty shape with a dash of Britannia stripes. Ribbed cuffs for snugness – ready for new adventures.

Ada Lovelace

Who was she? 
This unconventional woman was known as the ‘enchantress of numbers’. Her dad (the poet, Lord Byron) may have not wanted her to study maths and science but there was no stopping her brilliant mind and she became the first computer programmer – yep, it wasn’t a man.

Distinguishing features 
Statement colourblocks, wool-blend fabric and a contrast lining. Proud to stand out.

Lovelace coat

Kate Marsden

Who was she? 
A 19th-century pioneering nurse who travelled to Siberia (think boat, horseback and sledge rather than car, plane and train) to investigate a cure for leprosy. She wasn’t afraid to step off the beaten track – quite literally.  

Distinguishing features 
A bright, faux-fur hood trim to shake up tradition.
