A unique fitted double breasted coat, fully lined with four zipped vents, which can be optionally opened to show a dramatic flare, revealing more of the lining for a wow factor. This is echoed again in the cuff. The Coat breast, in signature Gabriela Rose style, can be worn in two separate ways too: both edge to edge fold back military mode, or fold over, but still in a way reminiscent of the eighteenth century highwayman.
The inspiration for the coat came from a combination of the Regency dandy and elements of punk fashion. The object was however to create a new classic, which could be worn for a corporate work day in the city but transforms to a vivacious and exciting coat for the evening. Gabriela’s designs often incorporate such a chameleon like transformation.
