camel coats


Perhaps those of you who braved Isabel Marant pour H&M's debut last week could relate to my experience, which felt like the old game show Supermarket Sweep come to life: a white-knuckled, high-pressure shopping spree with potentially big bonuses on the line. I grabbed what I could: a grey overcoat, a pair of sequin leggings, a white t-shirt and a tuxedo jacket. I didn't bother trying anything on at the store and quickly left with my loot. When I  got home, I tried everything on and decided I loved it all, but was on the fence about keeping the grey coat. It fit well, and the neutral grey shade was beautiful, however, given that I already own a neutral camel coat, it seemed superfluous to me. Besides, camel is such a classic. To convince myself that I should return the grey coat (it's harder to do this when you know others really want it!), I rounded up some snaps of stylish camel-coat-wearing women, featured here. It worked. The grey coat's been returned. And my old camel coat is my new best friend. Though, of course, I could still see myself braving the everyday winter cold in these just-out beauts from Burberry, Joseph, Theory, Oasis, and Asos.

I swear, you must be reading my mind!! I have been on the search for a perfect camel coat! I was at Theory yesterday and tried on the Elizabeth coat that you have featured here! Perfection!

Any idea who makes the camel coat in the last photo? I am in love. It would go on my Christmas list ASAP. Thanks!

Hi there, I love the blogs you feature! Can you list them out? In particular, the second picture with the camel coat and the purple jeans?
Thanks so much

If one wants to invest, the iconic coat by Max Mara in camel is perfection (and very warm).

The coat in the second picture is last year Zara. Tracking down the provenance of the coat in the last pic...

The second to last is the one I've been dying for, I have no idea who makes it. Any ideas? Or leads on something similar?
