Worship side

The origins of this yellow raincoat go far back in the history of the Breton sailor. The yellow garment is easy to spot when a man falls overboard, it protects the sailors and keeps them warm and dry. Originally raincoats were made of oilcloth, very heavy, uncomfortable and of poor quality.

In 1964, Guy Cotten settles in the port of Concarneau in Brittany and launches his own fishing clothing workshop. In 1966, he creates the Rosbras (in homage to the sailing school Rosbras-Brigneau), a jacket with nylon zip and double velcro fastening which is light and hard-wearing. It soon becomes THE reference in fishing jackets, for its comfort and durability and its notoriety goes beyond the local area to reach the whole of Brittany and the wider world.

Since then, the yellow raincoat has become the quintessential rain wear, so much so that at the end of the 60s and the 70s, it is a fashion phenomenon!

Ready-to-wear and haute-couture reinterpret the design, play with the materials and colour schemes: Yves Saint Laurent, Mary Quant, Pierre Cardin, Courrèges, Thierry Mugler, Jean-Paul Gaultier. The genuine yellow raincoat and this Guy Cotten model in particular is practical and tireless and remains a vital garment in the wardrobe of both sexes.
