FALL 2011 RTW: coats

We’re about half way through the fashion marathon folks.  Try and pace yourselves.  Viktor & Rolf showed an impressive collection of architectural pinwheel shapes. Think a coat discussion is irrelevant now?  These are the shapes for next year, betcha there are similar high-end clearance options still floating around.  Now is the time to find a steal.

Black, white, bold color, pastels, and even patterns – really, almost anything goes.   How magnificent is this Zac Posen full-length evening coat?

Don’t worry; trenches aren’t going anywhere.
