Ditch Your Umbrella for This Fashionable Rainwear
So, you’re just packing away the last of your extra layers after what you’re hoping is the last snow of the season, ande before you know it, it’ll be time for spring showers. The people of Copenhagen know all about that, and fashion designer Emma Jorn has set out to make rainwear for ladies that’s way more fashionable than a trash bag poncho.
After studying the streets of Tokyo to discover how people hustled about in the rain, Emma was inspired to create her chic, feminine rainwear line, Takaokami (named after the Japanese rain garden). Bonus: The collection is bike friendly. There’s even a bike cover to shield your basket and hands/handlebars from the elements.
The full line features an adorable wide-brim hat, a skirt tailored to bike riding, a versatile jacket, a full-body poncho and a totally street-worthy rain dress. Our favorite piece, though, is the super quirky Treien. It’s a short poncho with openings for you and two friends to poke your heads through and walk together under clear hoods. No more sharing umbrellas. It’s time to share ponchos.
Every piece seems like the perfect kind of collapsible gear that you should have a permanent place f0r in your tote bag on overcast days. Sony even got in on Emma’s project with a collaboration under the name Skybrud. Rainproof your wardrobe and your gadgets!
To get the clothes into production and keep it all eco-friendly, Takaokami is on Kickstarter raising $22,000. Contribute for waterproof wardrobe additions and put in your two cents on other color options. We’d love to see the pieces in bright springy prints.
