Winter is here, y’all—and so, therefore, is coat season. This means that I, your #fblogger #fbuddy, am feeling compelled to tell you all about which coats are cute, which ones are lame, and which ones are kinda in between. Harken to my wisdom!
Coat Thom Browne // Bag WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie // Scarf Acne // Boots Saint Laurent // Jeans Balenciaga // Eau de Toilette Comme des Garçons
This look is super simple, which I love, and draws heavily on what I think of as classic English references—the houndstooth coat, the military boot, the less-classic-but-still-English “punk” skinny jean. It’s pretty well monochromatic, which I get off on, and is super-luxe without being overtly so. Also, just for the record, that WANT clutch is actually pretty affordable (and totally gorgeous.) The EDT I literally only discovered this past weekend—I actually reworked my lil’ collage here to fit it in. I am completely and totally consumed by desire for this frag. No joke. When I think about it, I want to touch myself, that’s how good it is / LOLZ #TMI.
Another really good fragrance I recently discovered is Like This, Tilda Swinton’s collaboration with Etat Libre d’Orange. It’s Tilda, so obvs it’s unisex, and it basically smells like the complete and total opposite of CDG Black—perfect for those days you don’t want catching a whiff of your own wrist to incite overwhelming sexual desire. Anyway, while I love the Thom Browne coat, I think I may be leaning this season more toward really oversized lady coats.
Zara actually has a pretty nice, albeit overpriced, drape-y robe coat that’s a little bit boner-inducing (and actually a wool/silk blend, natch.) I’ve told myself I’ll get it the second it goes on sale…unless I find something better / actually cut for a small man and not a woman. Below you’ll find Christophe Lemaire delivering his signature blend of casual cool, plus some other coats/jackets I’m into. Are you ready for coat weather? Or are you kind of over it already?
