Ryan Roberts Gives Coats the Same Panache as the LBD!!
Ryan Roberts treats the coat with the same kind of consideration and attention that most designers accord to the little black dress. With this winter collection, Roberts offers a complete coat wardrobe designed to cover every need: office to evening to weekend. Roberts has spun his favorite fabrics: wool cashmere, cotton herringbone and his signature– boiled Italian wool- into graceful silhouettes that have vintage aesthete made contemporary. Classic shapes (trench, riding, and walking coats) are made modern and cutting edge with asymmetrical closures, dramatic collars, oversized and covered buttons, and exquisitely cut sleeves.
The Griffon is what you get when you cross old school glamour with modern comfort and wearability. The black and white washed cotton herringbone piece is soft yet structured. Impeccable retro details include a dramatic funnel neck, dolman sleeves, and self-covered buttons. Suggested retail: $770
The Reese: Roberts’ best-selling walking coat crafted from boiled wool looks good coming and going, thanks to a generous convertible collar, roll-up cuffs and a spirited peplum back. Available in tobacco, military, mineral, and eggplant. Suggested retail: $565. (This is one killer coat. The Tobacco color makes it universal throughout the year.. and would last for decades)
The Lauren: This pretty-in-the-city stunner proves that boiled wool can play dress up too. The ladylike, knee-length Lauren has discreet leather detailing, and can be worn open or fastened at the side with its shawl collar upturned. Available in tobacco, military, mineral and eggplant. Suggested retail: $635
The Thomson: This is the coat that connects the dots, and the one that instantly polishes your look. Fashioned from subtly shiny black poly jacquard sprinkled with uneven dots in aubergine or mineral, the Thomson is at once regal and whimsical. Its classic riding shape is accented with a notch collar and a back darted to the outside for surface interest. Make it casual by rolling up the sleeves to reveal lining that matches the color of the dots. Suggested retail: $625
Yes they are pricey. However if you realize this is investment clothing of a quality that you don’t often see, you will reallize that this is a bargain of a coat.
