Welcome to another Fashion Friday. It seldom happens that I see almost all my favourite pieces from the runway featured in one editorial, even one that I really like. I think it has never happened, until I came across the April 2012 issue of Glamour UK. The editorial is called 'Coat? Check!' and was captured on camera by Chris Craymer and styled beautifully by Sophie Cooper. Model Anna Speckhart is wearing gorgeous collarless 3/4 sleeve (or shorter) coats from the spring/summer 2012 collections of various designers. There are of course shoes and bags to be seen, and some gorgeous Louis Vuitton suitcases.
The Prada coat in the top photo above is my dream coat of the moment; I cannot get enough of it. I still remember seeing it on the runway for the first time and being instantly smitten. It has been appearing in various magazines and editorials this spring and it makes me happy every time. It is available in different colours and variations and I love it in red as well.
The second coat is by Giambattista Valli, who showed some beautiful coats at the Paris Fashion Week last autumn. The third one is Dior and I find it so elegant. I also remember a soft lambskin trench coat that I really liked from the same collection designed by Bill Gaytten. The fourth one I'm sharing is by Christopher Kane and here are a few close-ups of that one from the runway.
The other coats featured in the editorial can be seen below (I didn't want to overdo it with all these photos in large sizes).
Collarless 3/4 sleeve coats are one of my weaknesses. I cannot really resist anything with 3/4 sleeves. I need a coat like that for my summer wardrobe, but it will have to cost less.
Do you see a coat that you like?
Now it is time to announce the third ELLA fragrance giveaway winner.
• Anait, a fellow Francophile who writes the Cap Ou Pas Cap blog •
Anait is getting married next summer in a chateau outside Paris. Let's hope the Night scent will keep her inspired while doing all the planning involved. Congratulations Anait! Please email me your postal address so I can forward it to the ELLA team in Iceland.
There is now one bottle of ELLA Night left and the fourth and final winner will be announced next Friday. The giveaway is open to all followers of LatteLisa and the last chance to enter is Thursday 24 May.
Before I finish. Did you see Diane Kruger on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival? She was wearing Giambattista Valli haute couture and looked sensational.
Have a fabulous Friday!
