Raincoats are twee, I know, but when it’s pouring down like it’s been doing this summer, by the time your fifth umbrella’s broken in the wind, you’re going to wear one with pride
Swedish label Stutterheim caters for the trend conscious on a rainy day, offering their customers, “Swedish melancholy at its driest.” Their first model, Arholma, is a facsimile of the founder’s granddad’s raincoat from the 1960s, which he wore on his fishing trips in Stockholm’s archipelago.
Each one of these modern takes on the classic Swedish fisherman’s coat is handmade, hand-numbered and signed by the seamstress, Ingrid, in the last remaining Swedish textile industry hub, Borås. Just like in the good old days! Stutterheim are about to release two new raincoat models, Arvid and Lydia. Check out their store on Åsögatan in Stockholm or visit their webshop to get your wet hands on a piece of tailored, high quality dryness.
