Swedish premium rainwear company Stutterheim Raincoats collaborates with iconic American outerwear brand Alpha Industries on a unisex capsule collection. The two brands unite by turning to utilitarian and military fashion aesthetics for inspiration, making the collaboration a natural one, where each brand can clearly showcase their identity.
“Alpha is a fascinating brand with a rich history. It’s inspiring to see how they have managed to stay consistent in what they do for so long. We share a lot of views on the importance of simplicity and functionality when it comes to design. Our collaboration is a result of this, with pieces showing the great symbiosis of Alpha’s timeless, street-feel design, and Stutterheim’s contemporary, quality-focused way of working.” – Alexander Stutterheim
The collection is based on three classic Alpha styles; the MA-1 bomber, M-65 Fishtail parka and N-3B weather parka. All three reworked by the Stutterheim and Alpha design teams using Stutterheim’s Rubberized Cotton in 530 g., incorporating premium European craftsmanship while keeping classic Alpha detailing such as the orange lining and signature utility/pencil sleeve pocket, now made rain-proof.
“At Alpha, we like to work with people who are focused and have a true passion for what they do. Stutterheim is definitely doing both successfully. Our mutual preference for utilitarian and timeless design makes this collaboration a perfect match. For us, it’s inspiring to see some of our most iconic pieces being reinterpreted to offer protection against the worst kind of weather.” – Matt Pantoja, VP Global Marketing at Alpha Industries.
The Stutterheim x Alpha Industries coats will be available in a limited quantity at www.stutterheim.com and in Stutterheim flagship stores in Stockholm and New York, alongside select retailers globally.
