Competition: win a Mute Collective lion sweatshirt

Get all brave in roar-some lion sweatshirt from awesome clothing brand Mute Collective. I have one sweat, worth £40, to give away.

Win a sweatshirt

I’m a big fan of Mute Collective‘s ethos. Their ecologically-sourced clothing isn’t just perfect for surf and snow – it’s also a platform for new creative talent. Each piece of art involved, from illustration and design to the photography, is created by someone different, and the resulting gang of artists become the collective itself.

It’s hard to pick a favourite from MC’s new collection but this incredible lion print, designed by the talented Stephanie Wood, is one of mine. It’s also super soft and really warm – perfect for when summer evenings turn chilly or for a warming up after a surf session. I have one lion sweat to give away.

    For a weekend outdoor adventure I’d go somewhere in Central China or to the Japan’s coastal towns. Both are authentic and worth visiting to experience mystic great Asia.

    I am planning a road trip to Seattle, WA to see the Mariners play the Blue Jays. I have never been to a professional baseball game before. There is a game every day of the weekend. Many Canadians go every year to watch. I would take the sweatshirt along for the ride, and bring some UK pride to the games.

    I’ve had my eye on this one for ages after winning one of their fantastic shirts. It’s definitely a camping weekend cosy evening sweat. I’m thinking Welsh hills, with my besties for my August bank holiday birthday. Big ol’ hike up a mount, and pints and pies in the pub! I already follow Mute but will give your page a look 🙂

    I’ve been planning a microadventure on Sark – a one day run circumnavigation and sea swimming on day 2. I’d love this sweater to warm up after I come out the water.

    I also followed both on instagram ☺

    You’d catch me in Australia’s Snowy Mountains of course! I’m a snowboard instructor so I’ll be heading to the slopes in 10 days and need something to keep the chill off at night after a hard day’s riding between the gumtrees.
    p.s. following both on insta, keep up the sick posts!

    As much as I love this sweater, I think it would be ideal for my friend Eleanor. She’s constantly going to festivals and this style is right up her alley! Perfect for wearing in the evenings when it gets a bit chilly – but still very funky.

    I would love to take the jumper for a weekend road trip camping in the car with all the adventure gear to the French alps. It would be perfect for the evenings to keep warm after a long day road biking up and down the mountains, hiking through the area for amazing views and finally paddle boarding and wild swimmimg on the lakes with the sun setting over spectacular scenery in the mountain range. Pure bliss 😀

  24. June 2, 2017 / 3:58 pm

    I would take this everywhere in my new camper which I’m so excited about. It would also be seen walking up and down the Peak District close to where I live. Following on instagram too.
