Rain, rain, go away, come again another day...or at least wait until we have these perfect picks in hand.
1. Spring 2018’s collab between Swedish raincoat titan Stutterheim and Italian colourblock queen Marni serves up bold colours, sportswear-influenced lines and that cult fave, rubberized cotton. Women’s Stripe coat Sand Multi, $1,100, stutterheim.com
2. Local jean phenom Duer introduces its newest performance denim, the Stay Dry 2.0, a men’s pant that’s oil-, dirt- and water-repellent (hello, cycling commute!), thanks to its environmentally friendly, biodegradable Rainshield treatment. $149, shopduer.com
3. In the new digital age (RIP, Vancouver’s iconic Umbrella Shop), Davek’s umbrellas are built with old-school quality (featuring a lifetime guarantee) and new-school smarts, with advanced Loss Alert technology that connects to your smartphone via a tiny beacon chip embedded in the handle. From $165, davekny.com
4. If you could bottle the fresh smell of rain and sell it, you’d be on to something. Wait, someone has: Clean Fragrance’s Rain eau de parfum hits just the right dewy note. $95 for 60 ml, sephora.ca
5. Based out of Scotland, heritage brand Hunter Boots knows a thing or two about wet weather (they made wellies for WWI soldiers). These Original Refined Chelsea Gloss boots channel classic design, but in modern colours like Fountain Blue. $170, thebay.com
6. Until summer’s sun, there’s St. Tropez’s Bronzing Face single-use sheet mask, which contains a tanning serum infused with hyaluronic acid that gives a sun-kissed glow in just five minutes. $10, beautyboutique.ca
