A unique fitted double-breasted coat made from the lushest dark navy Loro Piana storm system fabric and fully lined with an abstract printed sateen lining. Designed with four zips, which can be optionally opened to show a dramatic flair, 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 edges to edging 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 with zips and chains. The object was however to create a new classic, which could be worn for a corporate workday in the city but transforms into a vivacious and exciting coat for the evening. Gabriela’s designs often incorporate such a chameleon-like transformation.
