Something Speziale (sic)

This coat isn’t just Per Una, it’s Per Una Speziale. My partner passionately hates it but I really rather like it. It is cold today and I fancied something I could really snuggle up in.
I’m wearing it with a Uniqlo grey cashmere roll neck, Gap denim waistcoat (which I shall remove with the coat), Zara dark denim jeans and shearling lined Acne Pistols. I have a Uniqlo Heattech roll neck on under the cashmere jumper. They are great if you get itchy like me.

Hope you’re having a good Friday.

Animal magic as requested

A lovely reader got in touch wondering if we had seen any nice animal print coats around. I have been browsing for one lately so thought I’d share the links!

I tried on this Biba one a few weeks ago, as you know I am small and found it really swamped me although I loved the 1950s vibe. As a faux fur wearer of longstanding (!) i find that the less expensive fur fabrics tend to be bulkier, the higher the price the sleeker the fabric in my experience.

I love the look of this Colette Dinnigan one, the colour is more muted and I love the simple cut.

The fabric looks lovely in this Malene Birger jacket.

This MSGM from matches is hugely reduced, quick – pounce!

Of course  leopard print doesn’t have to be fur, Zara have this cotton and wool mix coat. I know Tracey tried this and wasn’t mad about the colour. I found this linen coat from Emerson Fry which looks very chic, still animal but in cooler tones.

And the other day I happened across this beauty. Not available just yet, as testified by my frantic refreshing of the page, this special Luxe range from Massimo Dutti, NYC Limited Edition has a leopard print fur that I’d love to try.
