The coat is the most important piece in the winter wardrobe. Every woman knows that a good coat is always a great investment, because it can change an entire outfit by itself.
If last year designers bet on bright, unexpected colors, the coats designed for this autumn-winter collection give priority to the shapes, taking soft fabrics in relaxing tones to dramatic proportions .
The exaggerated shoulder silhouette, such as in the coats designed by Stella McCartney, transforms the coat in a luxurious cashmere cocoon, for a very feminine result, a world apart from the borrowed-by-boyfriend bagginess.
There are examples, such as in Victoria Beckham’s collection, where the coat loses the practicality of the sleeves to improve its elegance factor, promoting the coat from outerwear to eveningwear.
