This Coat Is an Unexpected Fashion Favourite

The lines are officially, and happily, blurred between the catwalk and the streets. There's no urban wardrobe staple too gangster for the runway, according to the A/W 15 collections. We're totally adept at wearing premium trainers with our chichi dresses, silk bomber jackets are a key piece on the FROW and sports luxe has been a mainstream trend for a fashion age.

Fendi upped its street cred for A/W 15 with statement down-filled puffa jackets and coats that wouldn't be out of place on the ski slopes of Aspen, nor on a Yeezy Season 1 enthusiast. We're literally holding our breath for a Kardashian to reach for the Dion Lee quilted satin coat and it's a matter of time before London's mercury falls so low, everyone starts wearing down-filled cover-ups. The December issue of Vogue declares that a 'puff piece' is on the team's wish-list. So, what's the fuss about? Simply that we never thought that we'd be placing the following words in the same sentence: shell down-filled coats are in vogue. Would you look at that?
