The history of Breton fishermen is the source of the yellow raincoat. The yellow raincoat protects and keeps the sailor dry and warm. First raincoats were difficult to use, made from oil-coated cotton cloth that was heavy, uncomfortable, and poor quality. But then, Guy Cotten… In 1964, Guy Cotten settles in Concarneau, Brittany, and starts his own fishing clothing workshop. He creates the Rosbras in 1966 as a tribute to Rosbras-Brigneau’s sailing school. It is a lightweight, durable, and practical jacket that has double Velcro and quickly became the standard for fishing jackets.
It would last three times longer than other jackets and provide incredible comfort. This is why it was eventually embraced by people beyond its traditional fishing context in Brittany, and soon thereafter in the rest of the world.
The yellow fishing coat quickly became an iconic, number one raincoat reference. By the end of the 60s it was a fashion icon that would last into the 70s.
High fashion and ready-to-wear continue to reinterpret the design by playing with colors and materials, such as Yves Saint Laurent and Mary Quant, Pierre Cardin and Courreges, Thierry Murgler, Jean-Paul Gaultier, and Courreges.
Guy Cotten’s authentic yellow raincoat will be a versatile, functional and timeless piece in your wardrobe, woman or man.
