Winter Is Coming; The Camel Coat.

There are few items that truly define a fashion movement and forever remain iconic; the trench coat, the denim jacket, the bretton top etc. these pieces are hero pieces. One of the most indispensable and heroic piece in a wardrobe is the Camel Coat. Its all kinds of special. The Camel Coat has that sense of class, its a colour that works with most anything. Where black can be boring or grey cold, Camel is soft and romantic. Its a timeless classic, right up there with the very best of them and looks absolutely gorgeous on any skin tone.

The Dame always knows how to deconstruct clothes in a way that epitomises cool. I love the throw off with the side buttons and high neck.

Floppy layered colar, contrasting belt, this is a throwback to a more relaxed femininity and it works perfectly.

The gentle lady from Stella McCartney the signature androgynous silhouette gives this coat that extra something.

The purveyor of the Camel Coat is Maxmara; it made it into an icon way ahead of its time. All other brands simply followed suit. The thing about the camel coat is its absolute versatility, it works with any look and any item, its a wardrobe chameleon. It makes colours looks less garish, tames prints, makes whites divine and with jeans its a match made in heaven. So put it on your list its not just for fall, winter is coming…(I had to)
