Although GORE-TEX itself has seen no shortage of outerwear garment uses, the oft-used water shield is more commonly seen applied to parkas and hiking jackets. The latest from nanamica sees a Spring 2012 introduction of the GORE-TEX Soutien Collar Coat collection in new colors — a range of raincoat-style jackets constructed from the all-weather textile. Mocked up in three color variations — tan, navy and pink — each coat features front hand warmer pockets alongside button flaps on each sleeve cuff. Simple and clean, the range is rounded out by light sky blue interior lining and off-white pearl button embellishments. Availability is now offered through nanamica.
