On the Street….Garance Doré, Paris

This shot is really about two themes.


First, Oversized Coats (as also seen here)And secondly, a reminder of just how great white and camel look together.

    Whites and nudes most definitely in. And they said you couldn’t do this after September.

      Yes, we could!!!! I’ve already do it today – wearing my white pants with a classic camel trench, feeling myself perfect ;)
      And this is November here in Russia))
      PS it’s like a challenge, isn’t it?)

        Personally, I like challenges. And I like when Scott finds subject that completely shake up my preconceived notions of what’s considered acceptable fashion.

      I have to say I love both these trends!
      The oversized coat on Garance looks so beautiful and she looks amazing as usual :)
      Also, I love the classic combination of camel and white!

      way to knock out two trends at once, Garance! :)

    Camel and white: I had never noticed they worked so well together! Of course a bit of a perspex heel never hurts either. I was however always into oversized coats, they usually keep you warmer and make you look mysterious.

    The third coat is perfect – there really is a difference between this look and wearing a man’s coat too big. I took a man’s toggle coat and had it cut down and it was worth it.

    Great !

    I agree Camel and white go really well together !!

    Word. White and camel is so classic and classy. Especially in winter when everyone is in black, you’ll be sure to stand out!
    Garance always so chic!

    Great on both counts. I’m really loving the return of oversized coats because I can now wear all my coats from the 90s again!

    All white, I think, looks a little more elegant and chic under a big cosy wool camel coat!

    OMG. Is Garance wearing the Maison Martin Margiela with H&M high heels? Or am I hallucinating?

    The camel coat is amazing, from the front and from the back. Simply amazing!

    Garance’s coat is really beautiful and I also like the one in the third picture. However it is difficult to find a nice tone of beige, it is such a difficult color! Max Mara and Celine often have a nice and warm shades of beige.

    Love white and beige! But how does Garance wear a winter coat when all other people looks like end of summer dressed???

    Love both. The oversize coat makes the figure weirdly thin. Black and camel is so amazingly elegant.

    The light colors/camel combination is truly one of my favorite.

    Oversize coat..LOVE. I think the trick with the oversize coat is to keep everything else a good fit..I don’t enjoy seeing too may oversize pieces in 1 look.

  48. Joanna F.

    Agreed. and so easy to pull off each of these looks.

    A couple years ago my pea coat was taken in a club and without any other options, I was forced to wear a man’s coat. I was none too pleased and thought it looked ridiculous and way too big on me, but I’m really loving the men’s attire inspired and oversized coats for women this winter!

    pretty much obsessed with all these coats :p

    Especially love the first and third photo. Oversized nude coats are great when your skin tone isn’t to pale. Also think that oversized is fine but you still have to see some feminine touches!

  55. princessglee

    November 8, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    I prefer Garance’s and woman in last picture’s take on the oversized coat and camel and white look best. Both very clean and modern.

    Camel is so surprisingly versatile, but I agree with another poster, it must be a good, warm shade of camel. The combo with white is so fresh but I also love it with an intense cranberry/wine, lime green, acrid yellow, red, turquoise blue, orange and magenta.

    I love camel and white together and almost exclusively wear the combination from spring to mid autumn; from mid autumn I add navy or black with white and camel. It’s a combination I find to be classic, fresh and flattering all year round.

    fabulous photos, my favourite is the one of Garance; lovely as always.

    I have a lovely camel coat from the 1940′s inherited from my grandmother, but I have a difficult time wearing it because I feel it’s got a very bathrobe or housecoat shape… lapels but no collar, very long and boxy shape, a matching belt that’s wider in the middle. I’m considering having it shortened and made to look like this: I love this coat and feel it’s much more versatile than the giant blanket mine is now. (I live in the Pacific Northwest and the length would just mean a giant sodden mess all the time.)

    Would that sort of alteration be criminal?! Should I send it on its way as is for someone else to enjoy and buy one more suited to me and my terrible climate?

    • Isabelle

      November 9, 2012 at 12:28 pm

      Alter it ! Make it yours ! Chances are, anyway, that this vintage coat can’t be worn “as is” without looking costumey … or plain old fashioned.

    November 8, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    That last picture is perfect in every way. i have been looking for a coat that looks just like that, but not necessarily in camel. I just love that straight, round neckline with no lapels.
