When Seattle E-Bike opens on January 25 in Pioneer Square and begins pedaling American-made electric bicycles, they’ll also be selling some pretty good-looking raincoats.
Engineered for action, Terra New York’s heat-sealed (no needles are harmed in the making of these jackets!) cinch-waist trenches, cropped capes, and hooded parkas manage to feature storm flaps, ventilation systems, and high fashion detailing—and … wait for it … ‘the extra low-vapor polyurethane is specially fabricated to rapidly biodegrade in a compost or a landfill.’
‘We chose Seattle E-Bike because of its commitment to quality, its total concentration on the electric bike rider, and its beautiful store in historic Pioneer Square—not dissimilar to our home in Chelsea near the High Line in New York,’ says designer Yurika Nakazono.
Nakazono and her partner Marie Saeki join the likes of Seattle’s Iva Jean and Victoria Simons in the game of dry style. I feel like I get wind (ha!) of a new wet-weather jacket every week or so. The ‘10s might well be remembered as fashion’s rain gear years.
