this is where you find the best raincoats in amsterdam
Autumn is here. And when I say it’s here: I really mean IT’S HERE. It’s raining cats and dogs and if you think that you can wear your beautiful fabric camel coat, you will realize 5 minutes later that it wasn’t the best idea. Bummer … Having a raincoat is (unfortunately) a must in our little country, especially if you ride your bike every day. That’s why we put together our favorite stores for raincoats in Amsterdam, but also raincoats to order at home behind the laptop. That way we keep it nice ;-)
Rain Couture: At Rain Couture, you’ll score the most beautiful raincoats of brands like PIOGG and RainFest. A more classic collection and a cool urban collection with cool raincoats. RainFest’s jackets are perfect for the festival season, keep rocking your raincoat with pantry print ;-) You can find Rain Couture in the Huidenstraat in the Nine Streets.
De Bijenkorf: The Bijenkorf is also a perfect place to go for raincoats. At the department store you will find raincoats of the popular Stutterheim, RAINS, Ilse Jacobsen and if you like printouts; Becksöndergaard.
We Are Labels: Also at our favorite store for shopping We Are Labels, you can get raincoats from RAINS, MbyM and K-Way.
looking forward to stay at home anyways? shop the raincoats right from your comfy couch.
