Chance of Rain – Style & Functionality for the Urban Cyclist
KALTBLUT Magazine presents: Chance of Rain! A Berlin-based clothing label that combines style and functionality for the fashion-conscious urban cyclist. Founded by fashion designer Antoniya Ivanova, its objective is making biking effortless in any weather condition. As a devoted cyclist she felt the need for functional yet stylish clothing that could be worn on and off the bike, rain or shine. Using the latest textile innovations the collections are made from water-repellent and breathable technical fabrics and features inconspicuous reflective details for extra safety at night. We are presenting today the new collection N.03. Support the label and the designer at it´s Kickstarter Campaign.
We believe that clothing should combine functionality and aesthetics, be made to have a long life instead of being discarded after short-lived trends and should be produced with respect to people and nature. Technology, style, functionality and sustainability should not be mutually exclusive but rather coexist harmoniously.
Cycling is much more than an eco-friendly way of transportation. For many people it’s a lifestyle – one that still suffers from a lack of style. Until now. Chance of Rain offers a sartorial solution for the urban commuter with its sleek collection of outerwear that could be worn on and off the bike, rain or shine. Combining timeless aesthetics with functionality the collection is made from Italian water-repellent and breathable fabrics and provides protection against rain without sacrificing style. Meticulously constructed pieces make the city bike ride effortless – the trenchcoats feature inconspicuous reflective details, side slits with insets open up to protect the legs when riding in the rain, cuff length is adjustable and pockets have hidden zippers.
They also separate into a cropped jacket and a long vest, providing variety of looks. The capes have zipped arm slits, thumb hooks to hold the cape in place and weights around the hem to prevent them from blowing in the wind.
The label has been honored with German Design Award 2016 for “Excellent Product Design” from the German Design Council and the “Kultur- & Kreativpiloten Deutschland” award from the German Ministry of Economic Affairs. Chance of Rain raincoats are available to pre-order through Kickstarter at an exclusive price until 11th June HERE
