New York called, summer is cancelled this year.
Last week, as I was in the depths of trolling Instagram, I came across a beautiful coat on the account of my favorite vintage spot in Brooklyn. Installation Brooklyn’s owner, Margot, had the most perfect, ankle length, camel, wrap coat on. After leaving a cat with heart eyes emoji on her gram, she let me know that the coat was in the shop.
I’m very partial to Installation Brooklyn for my own selfish reasons. Margot, is just a little bit shorter than me and has a very similar build. Subsequently, anything in the store the looks good on her translates pretty well for me. This is where I picked up last year’s ankle length, double breasted, red wool coat also.
I stopped through my old hood where the store is located, on Nostrand Ave in Bedstuy, to try on the coat. As I assumed from seeing it on Margot on Instagram, it fit perfectly.
The cashmere wool blend, belted, wrap coat from Les Copians was made in Italy and I LOVE IT. Further at $165 its about $400-800 less than what this season’s Les Copians coats are available for. I’ll prob sleep it in until May, because summer isn’t coming.
