(Death by Elocution tumblr)
I've had my mind set - yet again- on a kind of duffle coat since early september.
My criterias are :
A straightforward, nononsense cut, with deep and various pockets, made of at least 50 % of wool to qualify as winter outerwear but not so heavy that it's unbearable to wear and of course a big hood. The kind that will protect me from the cold, wind, occasionnal rain/snow. Something I put on and feel "myself" in, good and comfortable.
I'm not looking for anything remotely ostentatious, nothing waist cinched, fur lined at all. Au contraire, the more it is mininal, the more I like.
Of course so far, none of the coats spotted from mass-market fashion stores are good enough for my too simple yet picky tastes. It seems like the less you want adornment, the more you've got to pay! Why that paradox??
This Isabel Marant Etoile coat for instance almost fits the bill but it's bloody expensive. Still it might be the most affordable of my "wish" list (which included this similar model by Y's, or this Acne) if it makes it to the sales.
