A wrinkle-resistant, lightweight jacket that folds into a compact purse? Interesting. Veryyyyy interesting. I hope you’re intrigued because I sure as hell was when I first heard their pitch. For those of you constantly on-the-go, this may be a great option for you. Use it as an over-the-shoulder purse, then quickly “unwrap” it if you need to bundle up.
Designed by a startup named Orimei, they’re currently crowdfunding this jacket, and it’s being manufactured in LA. Each piece is machine wash-and-dry-friendly so it’s ideal for casual, everyday wear.
When folded, this “purse” has a magnetic snap button that ensures closure + a zippered pocket for essentials. You’re not going to be able to fit a TON in here, but your phone, money, earrings, and [insert similar items] should all fit without an issue.
So, what exactly would I use this for? Travel, travel and more travel. I love that it can double as a pillow and blanket without getting wrinkled, and I’m excited to use mine for trips post apocalypse. The jacket has a coat/finger loop, deep pockets, and cute side seam slits.
It’s one-size-fits-all, and it comes in a variety of colors. I’m wearing cream taupe, but I kind of wish I got black instead. What can I say – it’s my favorite hue for a reason!
In regards to size, I’m usually a small/medium (with outerwear), but this was a bit big for my frame. I personally don’t mind because I like loose fits, but I wanted to give you guys a heads up in case that wasn’t your jam.
