J Brand has us dreaming of beautiful coats for autumn winter 2013
J Brand may be known for their fantastic denim, but for autumn winter 2013 they are killing it with the coats. For their ready-to-wear collection you'll find tall coats, short coats, leather coats and wool coats. No, I'm not trying to sound like Dr. Seuss but I certainly do feel like waxing lyrical about this season's collection.
The J Brand woman for autumn winter 2013 is definitely one that has a slick and sophisticated approach to her daily outfit choice. We see her embracing both relaxed and super skinny trousers (in the leather we love) and pairing this with bulk layering on top. The layering involves luxurious knits and super shaped overcoats and jackets. Not to worry, for those of you thinking this will make you look like an oversized wooly mammoth. J Brand have paired their oversized knits with waist cinching belts and have constructed their jackets in a way that artfully slims the body with perfect lengths and tucks created at the waist.
What you have to love here is how J Brand manage to make a statement without actually screaming, "I'm making a statement." I do believe they call that the art of subtlety and it's an art J Brand have perfected after only a year of presenting Ready-To-Wear.
