Lempelius at Pauw
At Pauw we offer Lempelius for women during the autumn/winter season. The oversized down coats are our favourite styles, as they offer enough space to wear multiple layers underneath and can be wrapped around you like a silky soft blanket. The insulating goose down filling and the water-resistant finish of the outer fabric provide enough protection against winter cold and wind. Discover our careful curated selection in our stores or online at Pauw.com.
The Story Behind: Lempelius
For our ‘The Story Behind’ section, we spoke with Bettina Lempelius, founder of Lempelius and specialist in designing down coats, to ask her about the story behind the Berlin-based brand. Although this year has been difficult, she opens up about enjoying staying in one place and how she finds inspiration in her change of routine. Read the interview here.
At Pauw we offer a versatile selection of women's coats: from wool tailored coats that are elegant and delicate to technical jackets that offer the right functionalities, comfort and protection against the cold without compromising on style. All jackets – whether we create them ourselves or select them from other collections – are designed in detail and manufactured from high-quality fabrics for a long lifetime. These high-quality fabrics vary from natural materials such as cashmere, leather, suede, wool and cotton to innovative materials containing synthetic materials such as polyester, nylon and polyamide, which have properties to make a jacket water-repellent or even waterproof.
The collection of short and long coats at Pauw is divided into the following categories: the double face cashmere coat, the double breasted coat, the quilted coat, the tailored coat and the parka. Our brand portfolio of jackets consists of our own collectionPauw and the following leading brands: Aspesi, Brunello Cucinelli, Dries van Noten, Harris Wharf London, Kassl Editions, Lempelius, Vince and Woolrich.
Pauw signature 'double face cashmere' coats are characterised by the opulent, soft double layer of cashmere and elegant, precise fit. These cashmere coats can be worn all year round - both indoors and out - thanks to the natural fiber with excellent insulation. The long, woolen double-breasted coat in dark blue with gold buttons is an iconic piece within the Pauw collection, and is remade every year. A timeless and elegant design with a military-inspired character.
Aspesi is an expert in technical outerwear. The quilted down jacket from the Italian brand has darts to give it the right shape and layers easily underneath a wool coat for extra warmth. Brunello Cucinelli brings jackets from the most exclusive fabrics, such as mohair, alpaca and buttery soft leather and decorates each design with monili embroidery. Dries van Noten creates eclectic designs and uses a lot of colour and details such as embroidery, sequins and feathers. Harris Wharf London is a family business specialising in pressed wool coats with excellent value for money. Kassl Editions makes the ultimate, timeless jacket from technical materials in neutral tones. Lempelius offers down jackets with a modern fit that feel like a warm blanket. Vince’s coats are luxurious and understated at the same time and are often made from brushed wool in classic shapes. Finally, Woolrich is a master in designing technical, durable jackets that offer protection against all elements: from a heavy rain shower in the city to a hike through the mountains.
The range of coats at Pauw varies from classic models to special designer pieces. Standard colours within our collection are: blue, green, brown and black in different hues. Warm accessories such as scarves and hats from Pauw, Golden Goose and Marni complete your winter outfit and offer extra protection against the cold.
