The fluffy material continues to blanket outerwear. It has become a staple in the coating world. Warm, snuggly and textural, it’s a coat trend that keeps on giving.

Nothing can beat that rich camel hue. Simply divine. The best part – it works for every silhouette: A-line, fit and flare and trench.
The Classic Navy Pea coat gets a boxy crop for fall. The silhouette is also fabricated in checks, menswear plaids and beautiful Melton wools.
Touches of interest like a sculpted bodice, lace up lapels and raw edges put a playful finish on otherwise super minimalist coats. The length remains long for this silhouette.
