Max Mara’s muse was no doubt Monroe‘s picture taken by George Barris way back in 1962 of her clutching a coat fetchingly, and its sensual overtones (couldn’t ever have been otherwise with that lady). But the brand did offer plenty of options such as slim midi skirts and fitted knits with double breasted short coats offering snug comfort in soft coal grey notes. Just perfect.
Vivienne Westwood pays tribute to the ‘Time to Act’ demo against pollution and climate that took place in London. Titled as ‘Unisex’ it had her signature shock value USP with men wearing dresses and women in oversized suits. But we loved one particular ensemble featuring a midnight blue, large-collared overcoat with gold-coloured buttons and gold embroidery on the sleeves near the wrists. Truly royal.
Chloe’s romantic signature gets a masculine feel to it offering military coats with feminine dresses while men’s shirts are teamed with patchwork skits and lace slip dresses. We find a covetable coat, almost similar to Westwood in beige with just one difference more accented collars and minus the gold embroidery on the sleeves.
