The must-haves for the autumn/winter : the belted overcoat. And these lots by Zara just hit the right notes. It's double-breasted, which is a huge trend for FW11 and the other is that the belt always made it appear slightly military which many started to love ever since a couple of seasons ago.
This red coat is the one I like the most, since color injection is huge in FW11 catwalks. From the symmetricality of the coat, the placement of buttons and the just-right knee-length, as well as the side pocket to the slightly 'mac' look with the epaulette - the coat look fantastic. Wearing it on the streets would definitely made you a star without a doubt.
The other coat gives an urban feel due to its grey color. Though i'm not too excited about the patch pocket, yet there's some charm about this jacket made me drawn to it. Probably because of the strong masculine feel, which might appear like a modern twist of Sherlock Holmes coat - I'm kinda digging it. Or maybe because I can feel how luxe the material would be even with just looking at the pix. The luscious wool!
But still, I love the red coat. Awesome!
