Mackintosh proposes waterproof jackets and outerwear for men and women.
In 1823 the Scottish chemical and architect Charles Rennie Macintosh waterproof the fabric thanks to the application of a particular rubber coverage; the patented process marks the original Mackintosh waterproof coat.
In a short time the warm waterproof coats, become indispensable for "bon ton" gentlemen, but they arecriticized because of the smell of the rubber.
So, Joseph Mandleburg in the mid-1800’s, creates the first odourless outerwear.
From the 900 the Macks are transformed from bulky "couvre tout" in chic and dandy outerwear, according with the evolution of style.
Today Mackintosh is an established brand in the international fashion business, very popular for its outdoor clothing, that combines cutting-edge technology and traditional craftsmanship.
Exclusive and comfortable waterproof coats with the waist squeezed, single or double-breasted raincoats, trench coats, vests, jackets and outerwear, are characterized a great research on fit, functional materials and details.
The Charles Mackintosh’s basic designs, who is a member of the "School of Glasgow”, remind the Bauhaus architecture and the Japanese design, which still inspire brand proposals.
Basic fits are enlivened by a vibrant colour palette and decorative Liberty patterns, contrasting the essential silhouette of the garments.
