Back in style the classic duffle coat is the new winter street style hero…
The duffle coat which was adopted by the British Navy in World War I, thanks to its practical features, is now part of Saint Laurent’s timeless ‘Permanent Collection’.
Also, Alasdhair Willis – Stella McCartney’s husband – appointed to the role of creative director of Hunter this time last year showed Duffle coats at London Fashion Week runway.
A duffle coat, or more correctly duffell coat, is a coat made from duffel, a coarse, thick, woollen material. The name derives from Duffel, a town in the province of Antwerp in Belgium where the material originates.
My mother’s green Hermes duffle coat street style photos were taken on a windy cold sunny winter day on my way to a girls only lunch at Tesoro Mio, a trendy Italian restaurant in Kifissia.
The duffle coat is a timeless way to beat the chill!
