Trend Hunting #3: Le statement coats

From left to right: Costume National, DSquared, Louis Vuitton and Salvatore Ferragmo.

When we think about it, fall/winter collections are all about coats. I mean, other than outwear, what else distinguishes fall/winter from spring/summer?

Judging by what was shown on the runaways, what’s in next fall will be long coats with bold, contrasting stripes or bands of alternating colors.

However, I’d advise you against going for them unless you have covered the 4 absolute essentials: black, grey, navy and camel. These statement coats are absolutely stunning, but they are alternatives.
