Rainforest describes its upscale outerwear for men and women as “ruggedly elegant" — but what does that term mean? Well, it means down coats ruched to flatter women's figures; sleek men's leather jackets and grey fitted bombers finely crafted from weatherproof mélange fabric; and parkas lined with lightweight Tetra Heat to forgo the usual bulkiness of winter coats. Founded by businessman Jack Wu, Rainforest has been perfecting its aesthetic since 1986 — enhancing its designs with eco-friendly insulation and detailing such as leather trim or quilting. Finely crafted and fashionable, these coats are equally functional: the packable travel coat, for example, is a water- and wrinkle-proof raincoat light enough to fold up and slip into a large-size travel tote. Cashmere scarves, sporty umbrellas, and sweaters available in big and tall sizes are some of the many other pieces Rainforest makes to help you endure rough weather in style.
Outerwear that’s good for your morning run, your quick errands, or your casual office
When style and practicality effortlessly come together like they do in Engineered for Motion's apparel, the result gets attention. And we mean that literally: the new sportswear collection's designer, Donrad Duncan, was an exhibitor at the CFDA's emerging designer platform. Form and function blend in Duncan's work; he transforms high performance fabric into luxury sportswear by reenvisioning essentials of the active urban wardrobe as sharp, tailored garments that move better, weigh less and do more. We'll co-sign on that.
