Named after the Scottish chemist Charles Macintosh who pioneered the waterproofing process of rubberizing cotton cloth, Mackintosh is a globally renowned figure in heritage outerwear with a rich legacy that spans nearly two centuries. By the mid-90s, the brand underwent a revival seeing collaborations with fashion houses including the likes of Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Gucci, and Comme Des Garçons who looked to Mackintosh to produce their rainwear designs. The now Japanese-owned label continues to incorporate new design innovations while staying true to its tradition-honored craftsmanship, lending a contemporary minimalist aesthetic to classic styles grounded in heritage. The line’s range of women’s ready-to-wear favors simplistic cuts, clean volumes, and softened silhouettes in monochromatic palettes with a few accent hues. Lightweight wool jackets, double-faced belted trench coats, and oversized military-inspired capes feature subtle utilitarian touches.
