2012 is the 60th anniversary of the release of the movie which starred Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Connor. Seems like the perfect time to go see the musical version, right?
Apparently each performance of the Singin’ In The Rain musical uses 14 tonnes/14,000 litres of water! It is filtered, chlorinated and UV treated to keep it safe for the performers and audience and is heated to 30 degrees. But worry not: all of it is pumped from, recycled and pumped back into a 10 ton water tank in the orchestra pit - Singin’ In The Rain uses less than a bathtub of water each day!
It's inspired me to create some rainy day looks!
First up is this classic look created around this incredible Jaeger coat.
COAT £499 // Wool and angora belted coat by Jaeger
UMBRELLA £8.99 // Black umbrella by Brollies Galore
HAT £19 // Angora beanie hat by COS
WELLIES £125 // Fulbrooke heeled wellies by Hunter via Topshop
I'm an absolute coat fiend and I fell in love immediately with this YMC one!
I have a couple of vintage rain macs and love this retro one by Cambridge Raincoats.
COAT £250 // Red raincoat from Cambridge Raincoats
UMBRELLA £32 // Lulu Guiness birdcage umbrella via Brollies Galore
EAR MUFFS £4.99 // Faux fur ear muffs by New Look
WELLIES £160 // 100% Merino wool lined wellies by Ewe
Love the big faux fur collar on this coat - so snuggly!
I'm off to the musical tonight - complete with my own brolly! - but let me know which your favourite Singin' in the Rain look is in the comments. Mine is Sixties Sweet but I basically want all of the coats!
