She looks so cute! The whole ensemble is great. The coat is beautiful, I especially love the overall sleeve design, the ‘pouf’, very pretty. I finally wore a shirt with a similar design detail the other day and was amazed at how many people noticed.

This is my favorite kind of piece: the kind that could almost be unremarkable from a distance, or even across the subway car, but that utterly captures your attention — and then you notice the gaspingly lovely details. They almost wound you.
You’ve also nailed the feeling of walking into a shop and seeing something that’s just too item-y. This is the opposite of that piece.

It works because she keeps everything else so simple. Very nice! Love her Balenciaga Geant too!

Ditto on what Sleeper said. This is really lovely!

Gorgeous coat . . . love love the sleeve details. Agree with “Sleeper” . . . this is my fave kind of piece as well for exactly the same reasons.

That is a fantastic coat! She looks really nice with it!

What a beautiful coat. The key is in the simplicity of everything else, even the color, it’s all about the sleeve. She wears it well.

Beautiful cut Simply clever

It’s very beautiful, but how does it close? I can’t see buttons or other closures in the enlarged photograph.

the coat looks like Marni.

Brilliant bell sleeves!! I wonder if the coat would look better or more severe if it had a tighter fit in the body.

gorgeous! I want that coat! its very artistic!

I like sleeper´s sentence: They [the lovely details] almost wound you. I find this remark very precise. dicovering such details takes your breath away for a moment. it always comes so unexpectedly!

well done!! =)

i really love this

Oh, I love those sleeves. After you posted that pic of the woman in the grey blouse at the CK show in the Fall I went a-huntin’ and bought several tops with that sleeve. It looks just gorgeous and sublime on this coat – love the seaming. >sigh<

great coat. great bag, louboutins

Very pretty but I see it being impractical (i.e. when getting your chai latte from the barrista)

I think finding the perfect coat that is warm and beautiful is very hard to come by. It is a bit like finding a good hairdresser.
I know a good aigle goose down coat will keep me warm, but I don’t look so great in it. Maybe I am from Sydney (which is never cold), so I am not as lucky as new yorkers and europeans, they have a great deal to choose from.

that sleeve is marvelous!
March 27, 2007 at 6:51 am
Oh man, this is amazing. How brilliant… I am very inspired. :)
March 27, 2007 at 11:33 am
Beautiful. I want it…

The tailoring on that sleeve is epic.
March 28, 2007 at 12:44 pm
Details like this are what fashion is all about, plain and simple.
March 29, 2007 at 10:03 pm
I like it – it’s a little AsFour-tastic, but I like it.

Are you sure that is Marni? It looks like a Markus Huemer: Unit Coat. I remember this sleeve that he actually draped and pattern made himself years ago.

I would say its Marni b/c I have it in unlined version (from Marni Fall / Winter 2006-07 collection).
But you made me interested in Markus Huemer…

I love dramatic sleeves!
