Elvine x Grundéns

Inspired by the harsh climate of Sweden’s West Coast, Elvine has teamed up with rainwear specialists Grundéns to create a capsule collection of performance-led raincoats reinterpreted for everyday city slickers. Offering practicality and function with fashion awareness, these are serious raincoats with great pedigree behind them.

The collaboration combine’s Elvine’s trademark design and fit with Grundéns’ know-how and high quality production. Grudéns high standard of rainwear since 1911 has been serving to keep professional fishermen, sailors, and craftsmen around the world nice and dry.

Daniel Mänd, Elvine founder says “We wanted to collaborate with Grundéns simply because they make the best rain jackets in the world. And since it rains a lot here, I’ve always wanted to design a classic raincoat that I would want to wear myself.”

Named after islands in the Gothenburg archipelago, Öckero is a longer body version in blue and shorter one, Styrsö in yellow. Both have PVC coated fabrication with high-frequency welded seems that are 100% wind and waterproof. Both raincoats have waterproof pockets and include cotton inner lining.
