Since winter refuses to go away we would like to take this opportunity and showcase some of the coats that have come in recently. The Jean-Louis Scherrer Couture cape on the right hails from 1981 and is as classic as all hell, but la pièce de résistance is our centre coat. It’s from YSL’s 1976 Russian Collection is absolutely, certifiably,  worth dying for. She’s museum quality, in pristine condition, and to top it all off she has pom poms!

L~1960’s cashmere double breasted coat, size 8-10. Hermès tiger scarf.

C~YSL 1976 Russian Collection mohair fringe coat, one size fits most. Michael Kors dress, size 4.

Hermes 30cm Matt Himalaya Crocodile Birkin

Friday, June 8th, 2018

The exquisite Hermes Himalaya Birkin has been hailed as the ‘Holy Grail’ of handbags. It is made of Niloticus crocodile, rendered in a subtle coloration that is meant to evoke images of the majestic Himalayan mountains. The process of dyeing a crocodile hide is very time consuming and gets extremely difficult as the shade lightens. The Himalaya Birkin takes atleast 48 hours to create, according to Christie’s auction house, and has a six-year waiting list. Or, you could get this one from us now! Pristine from 2008, never used, with plastic still on some of the palladium hardware.

By appointment only.

Powder blue, seafoam and aqua for all you aspiring mermaids out there. I just love this combination of colours, it’s so fresh and light. The Dior 2 pc on the left is exquisitely tailored, check out how the diagonal lines meet up perfectly between the skirt and the top. No logos here, just old money sophistication.

Ok, let’s cut straight to the chase! How terribly chic is that 1950’s trapeze coat on the right! It makes me swoon and let out random “ohhhhs” while looking at it. From the oversized pockets & sleeves to the HUGE abalone buttons; this is perfection in a coat. The label is long gone, but we have a feeling that this is from a New York designer. Very à la Balenciaga. Side note; MIA labels are the bane of my existence…. Oh well, c’est la vie.

Veering away from our usual frock filled windows, we are focusing this week on outerwear instead. In particular; the Burberry trench.  Ever wonder why they are called ‘trench’ coats? Well, it’s because Burberry (or Aquascutum-the jury is still out on this) developed the coat for use by the British and French soldiers fighting in the trenches during WWI. Now you know! Get ready to fight the elements this fall and dodge those drops in a classic piece that is tried and true.
