Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK - words: MAX­INE EGGENBERGER @Max­fashed­i­tor

Die Hard, The God­fa­ther, Toy Story… some things are just bet­ter the sec­ond time round. This is es­pe­cially true of that coat

You know the one we’re talk­ing about. The Zara coat that proved so pop­u­lar an In­sta­gram ac­count was cre­ated in homage to its very ex­is­tence af­ter it was spot­ted on a le­gion of loyal fans in Septem­ber. Since the @that­coat ac­count was born, it’s amassed a 7k+ fol­low­ing.

Chances are you’ll know one per­son (or five) who owns it – at the very least, you’ll have seen it. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on it be­fore it sold out, ku­dos. If not, you’ve had to deal with the mis­for­tune of miss­ing out be­ing rubbed in your face for months on end – a pain we know all too well.

Now, though, our time has come. Zara has not only brought the iconic blue cover-up back for an­other sea­son, the high street be­he­moth has also – oh no – re­worked it in red. Red! Ev­ery­one’s sec­ond favourite colour! And we have a feel­ing it’s only a mat­ter of time be­fore it too reaches cult sta­tus. Go forth, buy, and who knows, you might just have an In­sta­gram ac­count cre­ated in your hon­our…

Here’s a se­lec­tion of our favourite snaps from when the coat hit Zara’s rails the first time around… coat, £69.99, Zara #That­coat T his is Yo ur Life
