That's right folks, I am sad to say that Summer is well and truly gone. At present I'm a Stylist at +AllSaints and over the past month I have seen more and more customers in search of their winter wardrobe, a new winter coat/jacket is high up on that checklist. I have indeed got mine and I adore it. A beautifully chic over-sized coat with dropped shoulders, a shawl collar and made in a compact Italian Melton with an oxblood body and black sleeves. I have yet to wear it out of the house but it is probably the only thing making me feel better about the temperature getting lower! The picture to the right is the all black version which I must say I was very keen on but due to the simply fact size 4 was sold out everywhere, I warmed to the oxblood contrast version as seen to the left. With the compact Italian Melton the finish is just so clean and the design simple, it is the best winter coat investment that I have made to date. If you want one for yourself I sincerely suggest you go and buy it asap, but good luck finding your size!!
Not being biased, but if you can't get your hands on this coat named 'The Klein coat' there are many other beautiful, cool, edgy, high fashion coats and jackets to choose from. Here are some of my top picks from the latest All Saints collection.
|The "Aphex Brass Coat"|
Part of the All Saints heritage range, this coat is the perfect example of classic British design. Constructed using the finest British cloth from the 'Moon' mill, which includes a wool and cashmere yarn, it is luxurious to the touch. The relaxed silhouette gives an androgynous feel, this is coat is both stylish and practical. Double breasted with a low break it will keep you warm in the winter temperatures as well as looking sharp and stylish around the city. To emphasise its exquisite credentials, this essential coat is finished with signature branded brass buttons. For those who love a classic look, this is the one.
|The "Vita Coat"|
For a feminine silhouette this coat fits the bill. A slim fitting, sculpted, single breasted coat. The Vita Coat is made in an Italian Melton with contrast pony skin panels and an Italian leather trim collar. Fully lined and featuring genuine horn buttons. Beautiful design and beautiful fabrics create this divine coat, it speaks sophisticated high fashion.
|The "Yasemin coat"|
An off-centre front fastening coat with an asymmetric folded collar and contrast leather sleeves. The Yasemin Coat is made of fine Italian wool blend cloth, with soft lambskin nappa leather trims and contrasts. With heavy biker jacket influences, such as panelling and multi stitch details on the sleeves, lightweight quilted panels, and nappa leather trims at the hem and collar. This coat is perfect for the edgy lady who loves to contrast between soft femininity vs biker chick.
If I could I would have them all, one to suit every occasion! But whichever one makes it to the top of your list you can be sure that you will be comfy and warm during the winter months, as well as confidently stylish all at the same time. What more could you ask for? So which will one will you invest in this winter? I'd love to see what others are going for this coming winter, so please feel free to comment :)
