”Melancholy shouldn’t be confused with depression. Melancholy is an active state. When we’re melancholic, we feel uneasy with the way things are, the status que, the conventions of our society. We yearn for a deeper, richer relationship with the world. And in that yearning, we’re forced to explore the potential within ourselves – a potential we might not have explored if we were simply content.”
Swedish company Stutterheim is spot on when it comes to embracing the Scandi melancholy. And their raincoats are a stylish alternative to gore-tex and velcro. Stockholm comes in six colours and sizes XXS – XL.
