Meet the Only Raincoat You’ll Ever Need
Welcome to Top Shelf, the new series dedicated to the best and brightest fashion buys on the market. Watch this space to find all you’ll ever need to live a stylish life.
Springtime is here and, along with floral prints and open-toed sandals, that means spontaneous showers and sporadically cool temps. Most people may turn to trenches to keep the seasonal showers at bay, but this year we’re looking to do something a little different. Meet the ultimate raincoat that you never knew you always needed.
Your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you… the bold, graphic look of this Stutterheim x Vibskov Colorblock 1 Jacket ($375) is just that amazing. Designed in collaboration with Danish visual artist Henrik Vibskov and his Swedish label, the head-turning, color-blocked creation is a major departure for the traditionally minimalist brand. Stutterheim raincoats have been famous among the fashion set since their debut in 2010 due to their dedication to fine craftsmanship, streamlined silhouettes, and classic colorways.
Each coat is handmade in Sweden using a special heat-welding technique, guaranteeing that you’ll stay dry in the toughest of rainstorms without compromising an ounce of style. Treated with a rubberized coating in 100-percent PVC to prevent rips, stretch, or aging, this investment will pay off for years to come. The generous cut leaves just the right amount of room for bulky sweaters in the winter but also sits nicely over a classic tee during the warm-weather months. If that isn’t enough to make you add this stunner to your cart, consider the slightly exaggerated length for maximum coverage that won’t overwhelm your frame.
If pink isn’t exactly your shade — no worries. Vibskov also designed an equally statement-making version in toned-down hues of olive green, black, and white. Priced at less than $400, this wearable work of art is both practical and ‘grammable.
