INTRODUCING THE COAT

It was a rather hot day this summer that I asked Leigh Canlis to come by and outfit herself in THE COAT, our latest signature piece. No matter the weather, everyone at the shoot was ready for fall to give us an excuse to wear this stunner. As all my pieces are, THE COAT was inspired by a vintage wool coat that floated into my life about a decade ago. It was begging for some modern details and to be paired with extraordinary fabric. Done and done! The collar is high so I can stay warm without the use of a scarf, which for the most part I abhor. The belt makes THE COAT feel more like a tailored piece that finishes off an outfit rather than simply outerwear to be taken on/off quickly so as to just serve a purpose. The purpose here is style. But it will keep you warm. I am off to my seamstress just after I type this to pick up THE COAT in Blackwatch tartan wool. Heart be still. Check Facebook and Instagram for sneak peeks. xXx
