Make a statement this fall by stepping out in the seasons eye-catching top coat. The London and Paris runways were full of embellished topcoats from duffel coats to dusters and trench coats. They were all served up with irreverent touches. London designers gave their own twist to classic staples by tweaking the length or adding hoods and sleeve treatments from various materials like the ones at Burberry and Coach. Bright colors took center stage at many of the shows in London, including Paul Smith whose vibrant rainbow colored coats fell deftly over fall’s slim suits. Bold colors were front and center at JW Anderson with the range playfully mixing bright hues with smart separates.
Over dyed and printed coats were popular in Milan with Dolce Gabbana, Gucci, and D Squared. Etro’s prints received a makeover that blended the fashion house’s signature prints with plaids, leopard print and tweed which culminating in a series of must-have coats.
Balmain, Dries Van Noten, and Alexander McQueen, all featured a bit of embellishment and romance with rich, metallic embossed velvet and wool coats and gold bullion embroidery that added a distinct Victorian flair to the looks. Thom Browne patched together different fabrics to create one-of-a-kind coats. Others chopped off the sleeves such as the ones seen at Maison Margiela and Alexander McqQueen. The options are endless this season.
