Finally, a Gorgeous Coat That Keeps You Warm AND Avoids Making You Look Like You’re Wrapped in a Burlap Sack All Winter:
Ann Demeulemeester has outdone herself with this Long Robe Coat, a meticulously engineered and brilliantly constructed topper that features shoulder seaming detail, a wide fold-over front with horn closures, a self tie belt, and side slash pockets. The fully lined coat is a blend of rayon, virgin wool, and nylon, and it measures 44 inches from shoulder to hem. But just rattling off the specs does not do this long robe coat justice. What makes it brilliant is:
1. It does it’s job and keep you warm.
You might be stuck in a blizzard in Williamsburg, waiting in the howling wind to get into a cool show at a Portland, Maine, concert venue, or just enduring a brisk, bracing fall day in Western Massachusetts. No matter what the case, this robe is going to keep you warm and then some.
2.But it also looks extremely cool, slick and sleek.
Usually coats only accomplish number 1 or number 2. It’s very rare that a coat looks this good and yields such thermal control.
3.The simple comstruction hides creative fashion engineering.
The more you wear this coat, the more you examine its contours…particularly from the back…the more impressed you’ll be. I mean, it looks good at first blush. But like a fine wine or a gorgeous piece of art, new layers and nuances reveal themselves to you the longer you spend time focusing on the construction and craftsmanship.
4. Its black: What could go wrong?
Again, this harkens back to the simplicity factor. Nothing looks cuter than a woman in a sleek fitting black coat bedazzled by flakes of white, fluffy, powdery snow. Maybe this year you won’t have to wait until spring to meet your next big fling, and it will all be thanks to this coat. Click the link to indulge! Shop by Designer
