Move Over, Camel

Having gone to Holt Renfrew over the weekend (I have to go at least once a month, or more!), my next couple posts will be about pieces that stood out to me.

I'm sure everyone's aware that the camel coat is huge this Fall, and why wouldn't it be?  It's classic, versatile and gives you an air of class.  But if you're sick of camel coats, and not to mention black/navy coats, then Versace may have the solution for you.  This rich purple coat with gold buttons and pocket detailing was on a mannequin and it instantly caught my eye:
Having seen this coat in person, I can guarantee that it's as saturated in colour as it looks in the photo.  I absolutely love the royal purple matched with the gold detailing: very Versace.  It looks just as good open as it does closed, and the cutting is perfect.  A great way to brighten up the windy days, no?

  10. I love how Versace always continue to do what they do best - good cuts and bright colours. An excellent alternative to camel.

    Thanks for your lovely comment, keep reading.

  14. YEAH! I don't really like this camel coat trend (camels not very good for über-white people like me). Really wanted a yellow coat this year but have got green instead. This coat is beautifuL!

  16. @E: Very interesting observation! I actually can't see this outfit being in H&M...the quality of the coat, to me, really elevates this look.
