Grace & Oliver: A style statement for your winter wardrobe
Style and fashion expert Jake Daniels takes a good look at a new luxury coat brand that has already built up a celebrity following and one that you should seriously consider if you’re looking to keep warm in style this winter.
It’s that time of year again and the hunt for the perfect winter coat is on! The newly launched brand, Grace & Oliver, burst onto the scene in September at London Fashion Week with key fashion editors and celebrity fans wearing stunning styles from the luxury online retailer.
The British born brand offers womenswear and men’s styles and believes that quality and style go hand in hand. With their sister company having over 30 years of experience supplying coats to well known UK retailers, they decided to take their expertise and launch their own brand to offer customers an element of exclusivity. With very small quantities made in each style, customers can be assured that they are investing in a coat that will give them individuality, as every style is a limited edition, never to be repeated.
Gorgeous key fabrics including wool and lambs leather are sourced from Italy and the coats are produced in factories across Europe to ensure everything is manufactured to perfection.
Stylish and sophisticated the women’s AW15 collection encompasses a range of designs from the ‘Imogen’ classic camel belted wrap coat (£895) to bold prints with faux fur trims, in an array of beautiful colours. Statement pieces include ‘Amber’, a colourful 3/4 length in faux Mongolian sheepskin (£450) and ‘Phoebe’ (£625). This plush boucle and lux faux fur jacquard coat is sure to appeal to the fashion conscious, keen to draw some attention.
The menswear collection compliments the women’s range with a clever mix of fabrics and playful prints. Pinstripes, checks and the classic Crombie all feature, with interesting details on collars and pockets. City gents will love the ‘Hugh’ double breasted, with a faux fur collar and London skyline jacquard lining (£495). The Oscar coat (£595) is a real stand out piece, taking inspiration from the bold prints seen on the catwalk at the menswear shows.
With exceptional quality and a chic approach, Grace & Oliver have a range of designs suitable for every occasion, so it may well be time to call off the search! Your perfect winter coat awaits…
