Coats: Mugler/Ellie Saab/Valentino/Oscar de la Renta

One of the highlights of Fall 2012. Shows were definitely wonderful coats and coatdresses we got a chance to see. Many designers really got them right on the money!

I made a selection of my favorites bellow, taking into account those I have noticed on London and Paris shows as I have already wrote about selected trends from NY Fashion Week shows here.
Mugler show was one of my favorites with clean cuts and colors which I will highlight in one of the upcoming posts; my favorite was the white, perfectly tailored wool coat above. I love the color of Ellie Saab wool trench and lady like appeal of Oscar de la Renta’s coat, although I was not to in-love with the rest of his collection. Valentino did a number of gorgeous long coats with lovely button detailing.

Coat dresses: Moschino Cheap and chic/Jonathan Saunders/Mary Katrantzou/Valentino

Coat dresses are definitely making a comeback in many different variants. These are basically coats which you wear on…nothing ;) Joking..of course…you would totally freeze. But they certainly look good enough that you wouldn’t need to. My favorite one the third one - Mary Katrantzou coat dress, I enjoyed all of her collection where she gorgeously combined graphic prints with amazing tailoring and fabric selection.

Burbery Prorsum and Ralph Lauren played with plaid, while Ralph Lauren sticked to his signature menswear inspired cuts and fabrication Burbery Prorsum fitted the hunter green plaid coats in the waste with girly mustard colored belts and accentuated the hips with large pockets.

Coats:JP Braganza/Temperly London/Burbery Prorsum

Fashion critics said that JP Braganza was most improved designer on London Fashion Week this year. I really liked the wool coat he did; it looks soft and comfy just like a bathrobe.  Temperly London showed a rather interesting collection featuring many eastern cultures inspired maxi dresses and couple of fitted coats, my favorite one was the black one in the middle, pulled together with a belt looking similar to the one McQ showed over their military coats.
The last one is a multicolored puffy coat from Burberry Prorsum which I love cause it is fun and figure flattering in comparison to most feather jackets.

Coats: Viviene Westwood Red Label/Valentino/Vivien Westwood Red Label

Valentino’s long coat in the middle has rather interesting pattern and Vivien Westwoods Red Label trenches on the outer sides of the photo above I love due to untraditional tailoring yet quite traditional color and fit.
What kind of jackets are you looking to get for fall and winter months?
