Paris 1965, the rain is plummeting from the heavy, dark clouds and ricocheting off the saturated pavement. A young man by the name of Leon Claude Duhamel is spectating from the dry confines of a café as disgruntled Parisians rush by in wet clothes. Suddenly it hits him like a flash flood during an English summer – lightweight, nylon pac-a-macs! And just like that, K-Way was born. Parisian design for a British climate.
