Chloe F/W 2010

A camel coat is a classic, whether it’s made from genuine camel hair or not. It’s always in style, but this year many designers showed their own unique take on it. Chloe’s version is the most classic, and menswear inspired – something Katherine Hepburn would have worn. From Michael Kors‘ superb collection, there is a classic with a little twist in the form of elbow cut-outs. Also going cut-out crazy is Alexander Wang, with his super boxy camel coat that’s sort of a half-cape, half-coat. A bit on a softer side is Phillip Lim with his collarless mod-inspired coats. On the cheap but chic side, there is a beautiful soft-shaped camel coat by H&M. This is a must-have for the fall season (and in life in general).
