Coats & Jackets
Over the last few seasons we have continuously seen multiple bomber jackets on the runways and in stores. Seeing that overload of bombers might keep you from investing in one for the upcoming season? But rest assured. Ever since the 1950s, the dawn of the aircraft era, when the military called for a cover-up that was both protecting and comfortable the MA-1 flight jacket or the bomber jacket has been a trustworthy and reliable go to piece.
This only proves that the bomber jacket is a versatile piece and a great trans-seasonal jacket, taking you from colder summer evenings to early autumn days and over to the cold depths of winter. Whether there’s frost in the air or a severe chill it’s difficult to find a safer bet for a key-cover up. Investing in a bomber is a safe pick both for the current season as well as for seasons yet to come. So go for a classic nylon bomber that is nodding to the original 1950s design or choosea more refined wool bomber with fur trims and belt, or pick an eccentric colorful and printed version, shawl-collared with quilted lining.
Nothing demonstrates exceptional tailoring like an exquisite wool overcoat. Skilfully cut it will accentuate rather than hide the masculine physique creating a classic and smart silhouette. It’s one of those pieces that will stay stylish for years to come if you choose it carefully. There are several criteria a smart overcoat must meet: sharp tailoring, timeless design and an easy-to-wear neutral hue. Going for a piece that is all that and more like a luxurious fabric and softly structured shoulders will make you look classic in every sense of the word.
The overcoat is also an essential item for the burgeoning winter months and a single-breasted overcoat is an investment in ageless cold-weather dressing. Simultaneously comfortable and smart they work with a suit, suave city outfits and with casual trousers making it the perfect option for off duty weekends and smart enough for the office.
The Nikolaj d’Étoiles overcoat for the season is made from navy or black Melton wool and with immaculate tailoring. It is grounded in classic style with a contrasting black velvet collar and slim fit lending it a modern attitude. This overcoat with contrasting velvet collar –called the Covert from the French couvert, was created specifically for the Russian royal family, a constant source of inspiration for Nikolaj d’Étoiles collections and off course a source of inspiration for the NIKOLAJ by Nikolaj d’Étoiles AW14 collection THE ARTCTIC GENTLEMAN.
