MOTORBIKING IN THE RAIN: Pirelli P Zero has offered a preview of its fall 2013 collection, launching Rain Sottosella, a capsule of men’s and women’s waterproof, foldable motorbike clothing. The high-tech line includes a raincoat, a jacket and pants, all made with a water-resistant yet breathable polyester microfiber.

In order to make them extremely lightweight and ergonomic, the pieces, which are available in a color palette including red, blue and olive green, are made using innovative techniques, such as heat-sealing, and are assembled with ultrasound and special glues.

Rain Sottosella is available exclusively at the Pirelli flagship in Milan, with prices ranging from 149 euros, or $194, for the women’s pants to 329 euros, or $429, for the men’s raincoat.
