Stockholm's Cult Raincoat: Stutterheim

Stockholm-based fashion label Stutterheim makes cult Swedish raincoats emblematic of Scandi cool - you'll have seen them around.

Count on the Swedish – a nation known for its restrained fashionable chic and pragmatic Scandi bent – to reinvent a garment as mundane as a raincoat and elevate it to a cult item. Proud of its artistic heritage, Stutterheim's ethos is steeped in Scandi melancholy.

What if August Strindberg, Ingmar Bergman, Karin Boye and hundreds of other famous Swedish artists had felt happy all the time? Would they have produced their fantastic work?” they ask ruminatively on their website.

The winter months are notoriously dark in Sweden, and the weather frequently rainy all year round. Stutterheim has made it its mission to view this melancholic climate as an impetus for creativity rather than a depressing fact. “Let’s embrace Swedish melancholy”, they propose.

“Embracing rain is a good start.”

Founder Alexander Stutterheim took his grandfather’s raincoat as the blueprint for the label’s cornerstone, ‘The Stockholm’ raincoat. Handmade in an exclusively developed water resistant lightweight and breathable coated cotton, the hooded raincoat has a minimal amount of detail, honoring the tenets of Scandi design aesthetics.

Other pieces, like bombers, overshirts, and accessories like bags and hats are hand-crafted from rubberized cotton. 

Each piece is subjected to rigorous testing in harsh weather conditions at sea or in nature, and in the city.
