Midweek Covet: Wanda Nylon Raincoat

Raincoat by Wanda Nylon ($850)

I have no intention of spending $850 on a piece of plastic, but wouldn't this trench by Wanda Nylon be wonderful on a rainy day? It's the wearable, mod equivalent of a bubble umbrella! Here's hoping one of the fast fashion chains comes out with a knock off before summer thunderstorms roll in.

  5. Forgot to mention : all our clear looks are made of recyclable polyurethane; this plastic is very soft & comfortable to the skin

  7. I'm pretty sure Topshop or even Zara will do a knockoff, it's similar to the Valentino one that they did as well.

  9. Arash Mazinani Hello ! We don't want to get into this kind of debate…
    The clear trench is an iconic wardrobe stapple since the 60s. We decided to first relaunch it in its pure version & in top notch quality (every stylist we work with says the quality feels different and the fit is great) and are now reinventing this, always with the aim of keeping it soft, supple & recyclable and it comes out 10 times less expensive than Valentino, which we thought looks great also.

    We already get enthusiastic emails from other companies and know we might get copied soon. Yet we believe in the fact that Zara or H&M, even if massive, can also leave some space for young creative labels. We are sure that if you are launching your own brand, you know how much work it is. Years of fashion studies, material sourcing, developing a collection each season, presenting it, selling it etc

    Thank you. Best, WN team
