Someone once said, ‘The difference between something good and something great is attention to detail.’
We couldn’t agree more.
This week we’d like to share with you some of the details that make our outerwear collection great.
CONTRASTING UNDER COLLAR AND TWO BELTS
Let’s start with our Belted Robe Coat. Well, firstly it comes with two belts. The narrower of the two makes the piece perfect for the office. A wider, double-sided belt takes you from day-to-night, work-to-play. One side of the belt is made from the same carefully sourced archive fabric that the coat is made from. The reverse is made from black, vegan faux leather and offers the coat something wholly more dramatic. One coat, three looks.
The Belted Robe Coat also features a gun check, under collar detail and heritage paisley lining both of which are also carefully sourced from existing fabric stock. As we say, there’s enough beautiful material in the world already.
HIDDEN BELT LOOPS
Up next is the Croydon Burgundy PU Trench Coat. It's made from vegan faux leather and has oversize pockets, a single back vent and can be styled up or down. But we believe its most interesting detail is the hidden front belt loops that take their inspiration from jetted pockets and give the trench a simple, clean line.
FLORAL LINING AS AN EXTRA TOUCH
Our third piece is our Portobello Cosy Fur Coat. This deep faux fur coat features oversized patch pockets, or shoplifter pockets as we like to call them.
But our favourite detail, is the floral design, tile print lining that matches the beautiful, vintage style diamante buttons.
ALL GOOD DESIGN IS PROBLEM-SOLVING
Scarlett Boyfriend Blazer is a versatile garment that comes with two belts for different styling options. It also has a sleeve button detail that makes it perfect for layering knitwear underneath.
“I was standing outside a bar drinking prosecco one evening. It was cold and I was wearing a jumper underneath a wool coat. It made it quite difficult to bend my arm as I brought the glass to my lips. Which made me think, a jacket that unbuttoned to the sleeve would be really handy right now.” Kimmi Kim, Creative Director.
All good design is problem-solving as they say.
FAUX FUR AND QUILTED LINING
Finally, there’s our Kimmi Duffle Coat. This coat is all about the detail, from its oversize toggle buttons, side vents, simple popper design, and a faux fur hood.
But, like all the details, the best are hidden. The coat boasts a stunning, white quilted lining that makes the Kimmi Duffle feel like you’re wearing a cuddle.
And one final detail - have a great week and thanks for reading.
