The temperature is getting lower and lower each day, and the wardrobe after warm autumn is not ready for the seasonal cold snap? With the arrival of calendar winter, it's time to take advantage of our fashion guide and choose the most relevant options of outerwear for any occasion. We will tell you how designers advise to warm ourselves this year by the example of the collections presented in the Vremena Goda Galleries.
The formula of a trendy down jacket, according to this season, should include at least one detail to distinguish it from traditional models. So, the Nanushka brand offers apparently the most average black down jacket but made not of classic dense textiles, but of eco-leather. Valentino launches a vibrant glossy model, Alena Akhmadullina adds a touching shawl instead of a scarf, and Gucci and Alexander Wang adorn jackets with contrasting inserts.
This season variations on a biker jacket or long sheepskin coat with prominent elements of the 1970s have appeared at once from several brands. The matching rules are simple enough – the combination of short versions made of tanned sheepskin with chunky soles shoes will look beneficial, as well as a midi-length coat will suit ankle boots with a stable heel and platform, which we talked about in a recent article.
Colored fur coats
For a while, controversy has been swirling around the topic which fur coats are more environmentally friendly - made of natural or artificial fur. Supporters of the former ones claim that a fur coat is a long-term purchase to serve more than one generation and so it reduces the level of overconsumption, the latter ones suggest that using artificial fur is definitely more humane. No matter which camp you would join since the brand collections come up with fancy options for both sides. We advise you to take a closer look at models made in light shades in a retro style, like Stella McCartney, Joseph and Maje. And for the most daring ones, there is a Braschi fur coat made in a predatory leopard color.
Dior fur coat
It is one of the most elegant outerwear models to complement flawlessly power dressing outfits or ensembles in the spirit of Jane Birkin who adored capes. Undoubtedly the best versions with a flawless silhouette are the ones from Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Salvatore Ferragamo.
Not the most practical, however beautiful trend is a maxi-length coat. The Olsen sisters with their brand The Row are the adherents of this model. This season Nanushka, Preserico, Sandro and many others have followed in their footsteps.
Short fur jackets
Another fancy model of this season's fur coat is a short-cut fur jacket. In the versions made of natural and eco-fur, they released feminine models with an accentuated waist, a turn-down collar or volume lowered sleeves, as well as allusions to sports bombers in an ultra-luxurious reading.
