Cool Coats

Although it is only the end of February and there should still be some more warm days left in our Melbourne summer, the AW2010-2011 Ready-to-wear shows have prompted me to think about my winter wardrobe. There seems no better place to start than with a gorgeous coat – the right one can be thrown over anything and still make you feel well turned out and as a bi-annual-coat-purchaser, this is my season to invest again.

Burberry Prorsum definitely has the strongest coast offering that I have seen so far. Silhouettes are spot on and the quality looks sensational (would we expect anything less?). The olive-green styles with brass buttons are perfect for everyday, but I also love the injection of colour from the fitted cobalt with black buttons addition.

3.1 Phillip Lim has some interesting contrasts going on in his coat collection. There are tux-style jackets with contrast satin lapels and a caramel coat with black binding – very chic.

Carolina Herrera added colour and texture to a simple coat with over-sized patch pockets. The deep ox-blood red complimented other pieces as well as accessories in her collection.
