Caught between a COAT and a hardplace....

Buying a coat is a pain in the butt...I try to go for a solid classic and hold on to it for at least 2 years...until I can't stand the sight of it a moment longer.

I am at that point...

So....what to get?


Now a cape is chic and sophisticated... as is this one by Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane but not your everyday...Lord I am freezing my tits off....alternative.
But I did buy one from COS...it is minimalistic black and as normcore as it comes for a pared down look. And ..it didn't cost the earth, so a no-brainer for my wardrobe.

But which direction to go coat wise?...I am so over camel (Max Mara)...just had it up to here with grey (Nicole Farhi)....

Could this stunning Celine lambskin be inspirational?....

Or do I go back to my Capt. Haddock roots and resume my love affair with a peacoat?


This one by Fendi gives "peacoats" a whole new vibe....and gives me direction.

Away with the fuddy duddy, belted camel coat, the mannish black below the knee or anything that hints at being different....this winter I want a 3/4 length peacoat with pizzazz...Fendi-esque it is!
