Born as a variant of the men’s tailcoat, two centuries have passed since the women’s coat was officially presented in a fashion magazine. The very first coat, created exclusively for women, was conceived entirely in silk and with a light fur padding. The watchword: coats to protect oneself from the very low temperatures in the cold moorlands of France.
Dondup managed to readapt the ancient cape used for horse races, to make them abandon the classic cuts of the famous redingotte, creating a unique garment with the unmistakable feature of the double-breasted caban cut.
Abandoned the glittering chandeliers of the French courts, a source of inspiration for fashion has become the aviation sector, of great inspiration for the elegance of the garments. Maxi lengths for the double-breasted coat that 5 Progress has been able to propose in a modern key.
The experience of the designer Massimo Pepe has meant that from the very first capsules of garments in which vintage is linked to the military theme, the brand has come to propose coats with an eternally contemporary flavor. The designer Erika Cavallini has also chosen decidedly oversize lengths for the Fall/Winter 2020 collection with a primary fabric in virgin wool.
Coats that follow the stylistic influences of other countries
A decidedly oriental imprint that Max Mara Weekend has given through the style proposed by the Maramotti family and consolidated in this 2020 through the choice of sober lines, linked with a red line to the Japanese style. Waist belt, long straight sleeves and long sleeves fall lightly from the kimono, taking the clean and elegant lines combined with wool and cashmere fabrics.
Strictly elegant lines for the outerwear proposed by Forte_Forte, dominated by a long slit on the back and the absence of the neck or jacquard weave that compete in the winter season with the romantic Red Valentino, timeless garments with curled sleeves or bow knotted at neck height.
Irresistible is the charm of the brand Harris Wharf London, which in 2009 has entered the fashion scene with a line entirely based on coats. A bridge that joins Italy to London, from which style the Acchiardi brothers have taken inspiration for the launch of the line that this season is proposed as a trump card of the urban look.
A triumph of eco fur with soft lines for the garments proposed by Pinko, which focuses on coats with geometric lines and dark green shades that will make even the most feared season by women pleasant.
