MERINO WOOL WRAP COAT

MERINO WOOL WRAP COAT £199

 

You know how it is when you see something that you just have to have? For me this season it is a navy knitted coat. Classic, yet super modern and so easy to wear - over everything. I can’t remember when I switched from black to navy or when it was proclaimed officially cool. Not all navy is equal, with dark inky hues and brighter, warmer tones. Possibly less ageing than black and less formal.

I went to the Winser launch of the YLB collection designed in conjunction with Yasmin Le Bon. Yasmin’s navy oversized, softly squeezable, cardigan/coat is a real fall-in-love piece. It is in Merino wool, double breasted in her nifty signature Y-stitch, £395. Smart enough for running around town, easy and cosy for at-home too - perfect work–life balance.

Navy coats from Winser are plentiful: Merino Wool Coat, £150; Milano Wool Single Breasted Coat, £250; Tweed Coat, £450; Crepe Jersey A-Line Coat, £250; Trench Mac, £250.
