Umbrella Coat Raincoat Keeps Rain, People Away

by Hazel Chua

Just because something serves a decent enough purpose doesn’t mean that it should get made or be manufactured and released for public consumption. Remember the Privacy Shell that starts out as accessories like handbags or hats that can be folded out to form, well, a shell that can separate you from the rest of the world? If you don’t, I still do, and for a reason: because it looks pretty strange.

And then there are functional objects that could be useful, if only they looked like something a sane and normal person would wear, like the Umbrella Coat Raincoat.

Umbrella Coat Raincoat

The Umbrella Coat Raincoat is exactly what its name suggests: it’s a raincoat that’s a coat (no duh) and an umbrella. But it’s not just like your average raincoat that ends somewhere below or above your knees. No, it’s actually a full-length pajama-like raincoat that looks like an oversized jumpsuit with an umbrella hoodie that’s larger than life.

The Umbrella Coat Raincoat is a design by Athanasia Leivaditou, who wanted to come up with the most foolproof and convenient raincoat there is, since your hands will actually be free to do whatever they please while you brave the storm outside.

Now that you’ve seen it, let me ask you this simple questions: Would you rather put on the Umbrella Coat Raincoat, or get soaked in the rain?
