Where the runway meets the street

It’s no joke how wet and soggy fall and winter months can be. So unless you live in a desert, a rain jacket should be an essential part of every wardrobe. But we’re not talking about boring, utilitarian jackets – we’re talking about using fire to stay dry.

Ever since Vetements put the parka back on the map, raincoats have gone from being a season essential to a fashion statement more than ever. For Scandinavian countries, this is a no-brainer. Swedish brand Stutterheim is a prime example of how by invoking understated Scandi cool you can enliven the most basic items, all while staying fly and dry. Splashes of color, long silhouettes and, of course, water-repelling and breathable material should be part of a good parka.

So check out our list below of raincoats for every budget. Whether they’re the more stylish pieces such as MSGM’s paper-light coat, or Supreme’s teal green raincoat that looks more like a hoodie than an actual parka (don’t be fooled), there’s a raincoat in your forecasted future, rain or shine.
