Here comes the rain again

We met up with Norwegian musician Eirik Glambek Bøe (from Kings of Convenience) last week, and amongst other things we talked about, he was particularly insistent we should have a look at the coat collection from new Bergen label Norwegian Rain.

The resulting collection certainly catches the eye, combining technical detailing, high-quality fabrics and unusual designs (including the poncho-inspired 'Raincho') in its quest to stay stylish in the face of relentless, pissing rain. Could be useful here too. €399-899, www.norwegianrain.no
