The origins of the yellow raincoat go back to the history of Breton fishermen. This garment, whose color makes it possible to quickly spot a man overboard, protects the sailor and keeps him warm and dry. The first raincoats were very impractical, made of oil coated cotton cloth which was heavy, uncomfortable and of poor quality, but then there was Guy Cotten… In 1964, he settles in the port of Concarneau in Brittany and launches his own workshop of fishing clothing. In 1966, he creates the Rosbras (in tribute to the sailing school Rosbras-Brigneau), a light, durable and practical jacket with zipper and double Velcro which soon became THE reference of fishing jackets.
The jacket would last 3 times longer than other models and the gain in comfort was incredible, which explains why it eventually seduced people outside its traditional fishing context, first in Brittany and shortly thereafter, in the entire world.
And so, the yellow fishing coat soon became the emblematic, the number one reference of raincoats, and by the end of the 60’s, it had become a fashion phenomenon that would conquer the 70’s and last to this day.
Ready-to-wear and high fashion continuously reinterpret the design, playing with materials and color schemes, such as Yves Saint Laurent, Mary Quant, Pierre Cardin, Courrèges, Thierry Mugler and Jean-Paul Gaultier.
The authentic yellow raincoat of Guy Cotten will remain a colorful, practical and tireless piece of your wardrobe, man or woman.
