I walked by a designer boutique in Shanghai's French Quarter and marveled at an expensive raincoat — it was beautiful and elegant, but would it withstand my adventures? After a lifetime of exploring, I knew anything I wore needed to not only be beautiful, but resilient. Cotes was born not only to fit my own lifestyle, but to be there for adventurous women and men all over the world.I know many of us are always craving a new challenge, but the tools and jackets we carry with us, shouldn't have to change.
