Stutterheim: Raincoats That Embrace The RainAugust 28, 2017
Raincoats typically are made for active wear and often can fit boxy in the middle with a hood that clings tightly around the face – not the best look. All too often, if you’re going for a more stylish look, the coat falls short of your expectations for it to be a shield of protection. Luckily, Stutterheim Raincoats has mixed fashion with function, transforming your everyday rain wear.
Stutterheim Raincoats was founded in Sweden by John Loman and Alexander Stutterheim in 2010. It “drew initial inspiration from a classic 1960s fisherman’s raincoat that belonged to his grandfather,” according to New York Times style magazine. The classic style, which features a long, loosely fitting, breathable body that clings at the shoulders, still is a staple in Stutterheim’s collections today.
Look around Stutterheim’s website, and you’ll notice the word melancholy. According to the company, feeling melancholy is an active state and means that one is “uneasy with the way things are.” It goes on to say that “melancholy and creativity go together like ebony and ivory on a piano” and “Let’s embrace Swedish melancholy. Embracing rain is a good start.”
Stutterheim Raincoats come in a variety of colors and materials and feature different patterned designs. It has options for men, women and children and also sells rain accessories, including a perfect “all-weather” bucket hat. Stutterheim’s staple Mosebacke design is available in more than 10 colors and starts at $295. (We happen to be pining for this Dogtooth Big Black/White raincoat.)
Stutterheim currently has two brick and mortar locations, one in Stockholm and one in New York. You can follow the company on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.
