Rare spec­i­mens

VOGUE Hommes International (English) - - VOGUEHOMMANIA -

— Why is it that, ev­ery sea­son, you have to move heaven and earth to get your mitts on the per­fect, orig­i­nal top­coat that suits you down to the ground? Once you’ve ticked off the clas­sic num­ber in navy blue or an­thracite cash­mere, the fall – back so­lu­tion to side­step a fash­ion faux pas, you have to ac­knowl­edge that a wear­able coat with just the right amount of orig­i­nal­ity and ec­cen­tric­ity is pretty hard to come by. Noth­ing daunted, your ed­i­tors have un­earthed six mirac­u­lous spec­i­mens. In no par­tic­u­lar or­der we found a loose– fit­ting take on the trench coat in cof­fee – coloured leather at Louis Vuitton ; a camel neo – Lo­den with a shear­ling col­lar for stu­dent dandies at Gucci; a clev­erly de­con­structed can­vas mac from Craig Green; a bril­liant rein­ven­tion of the slicker at Calvin Klein ; a baroque noir riff on the long frock coat at Raf Si­mons ; and a lac­quered red XXL down – filled num­ber from Mon­cler, the per­fect nose – thum­ber for the win­ter blues.
