Lady coats for winter 2009

As party season is almost here you will definitely need a stylish winter coat to wear over your festive dress. Romantic and military-chic are my top trends this winter so here are some great finds:

First is Cecilia Hammarborg’s capsule collection “Black River Falls” which includes some of the loveliest wool coats I’ve seen.

Cecilia Hammarborg capsule collection fall/winter 2009/2010

The London-based designer was inspired by Victorian men’s tailoring and mixes luxury Italian fabrics with sharp cuts and feminine silhouettes resulting in flattering shapes such as the Blue Riding Hood Coat, £250, with fitted bodice, ample skirt and built-in hood or the cloak-like Dogtooth Storm Coat £295, with a high neck collar, puffy sleeves and slightly asymmetric hemline.

The second is this lovely double breasted wool Olga Coat with fitted bodice and full circle skirt made by Ukrainian designer Tatyana Merenyuk, now based in Chicago. Priced at $495.00 it is also available for custom orders at TM’s Etsy shop reddoll.
