It all started with an old, yet stunningly cool, raincoat Alexander Stutterheim discovered in his grandfather’s barn on Arholma, an island in the Stockholm archipelago. After instantly falling in love with the practicality and sleekness of the coat, he found the right craftsmen and seamstresses to rework and perfect a modern fit. The result? Incredibly lightweight and impeccably tailored raincoats, each handmade in Poland. I just received my first Stutterheim this week and am officially ready for El Niño’s imminent arrival. But honestly, I would wear my new favorite raincoat any day – rain or shine.
