Norwegian Rain

Despite the existence of designer gumboots and umbrellas, a sense of style can often suffer at the mercy of a rainy day.The issue of wet-weather attire has always been one close to the heart of Alexander Helle, who hails from Bergen in Norway (Europe’s rainiest city). After visiting Milan and experiencing the liberating feeling of being dry, comfortable and stylish, Alexander,  together with bespoke tailor T-Michael, set about creating Norwegian Rain – a tailored range of functional outerwear. The pieces are made from recycled fabrics sourced from Japan and are tailored to achieve an understated, clean-cut look.
