Coat Tales

Amanda Garrigus Wearing a Black Cornell Collins Coat

There are coats, and then there are coats. You know, the ones that make an impact, that leave a lasting impression. The ones that, when properly worn, are transportive, fire the imagination and boost self-confidence. I know, you think I’m overstating, that I must be prone to superlatives, and you’d be right, about the latter. But I do believe in the power of clothes to transform, and if you’re reading this blog you probably agree with me. This coat, another Cornell Collins masterwork, does all the right things for me. Wearing it here, against this backdrop, I feel like a Lady surveying the land and sky in search of my just-released falcon. (I love a good period piece.) The pinched shoulder, generous collar, narrow sleeve, full body and mid-calf length add up to perfection. If ever there were a piece worth investing in, a great coat is it. See below for a few more of my favorite toppers.

With love,
