THE COAT OF THE SEASON IS HERE
It’s shearling, super-luxe, unbelievably warm and SO worth the investment
MUST-HAVE HERO COAT
All savvy fashionistas know the power of a ‘forever’ buy. We’re talking about timeless, get-better-with-age investment pieces (usually with a slightly higher than average price tag, hence the investment moniker). From leather jackets to knee-high boots, some things are just worth spending a bit extra on, and this season, that something is our shearling coat.
We made it our mission to create an insanely cosy shearling coat crafted from the softest lambs leather that didn’t come with the standard four-figure price tag. While it’s undoubtedly still a serious wardrobe investment, there’s a strong case for why it’s worth the splurge. Firstly, it’s probably the most luxurious – not to mention hard-wearing – coat you’ll ever own. Glossy shearling steals the show, with panels to the front and back, patch pockets, turn back cuffs and a keep-you-warm collar. No need to worry about looking like the Michelin Man either – key to our design is a streamlined cut that’s made to flatter, not add bulk. It’s also half lined with shearling inside – nothing will keep you cosier this winter (and for many winters to come)
Secondly, forget the Del Boy connotations – todays shearling fans are way more chic than everyone’s favourite Cockney wide boy (sorry Del). Supermodel Ashley Graham and actress Liv Tyler have been keeping cosy in their black shearling coats, proving that it’s a cover-up that will take you from day to night. See how it looks as good with Liv’s LBD and heels as it does with Ashley’s laid-back shirt and jeans? Better make that hard-working as well as hard-wearing. As with all wardrobe investments, it’s all about the cost-per-wear value. So, when you work out that you’re probably going to wear it every day for five months for the next, say, 20 years, that price tag doesn’t seem so expensive after all. Never has buy now, wear forever been more apt…
