Subheading: It’s always a good day when you can quote David Bowie.

Updating my winter wardrobe is always something of a chore – with a huge array of coats & jackets to choose from, will it be a leather biker jacket, statement coat, or on-trend aviator? For many years I used to knock about in an ancient black velvet coat that was a few sizes too big by anyone’s standards! I think I was channelling some kind of Wednesday Addams/Edgar Allen Poe-esque faded heroine chic, but I just ended up looking like a reject extra from Oliver!

Ah, how times have (almost) changed. I’m still digging repeats of the Addams Family films and reading Poe when I settle down with a cup of tea, but these days I’m after a coat that not only fits & will see me though the colder months, but above all looks great! Huge thanks to Emoda for ticking all the boxes…

Love love LOVE the styling in the above image – I’d expect that look maybe from high-fashion fans Candy, but from a more mainstream brand like Emoda it’s great to see them taking risks with their inspirational images.

I love the swinging sixties feel of the photo below – it’s the white quilted boots that give such a retro edge to the long-length sheepskin aviator coat; a great take on this season’s must-have!

I’ve been snapping up quite a few draped items here ad there recently (blame my new-found addiction to menswear!), and the above waterfall coat would fit comfortably in. While I’d be pairing it with loads of layers and some chunky boots, I really adore the bodycon items underneath – feminine and fierce! Such a great versatile piece.

Below is an image that really caught my eye: back to the 1960s again with a hot pink miniskirt & thigh-high boots! I was always a bit scared of the girls at school who wore puffa jackets (ah, the ’90s!) – they smoked and had tiny backpacks and didn’t like me because I was a goth – but I’ve got to say, this is one awesome jacket! The moons & stars in the background make me think of spacesuits and David Bowie – I’d happily explore the universe in this jacket, while listening to Dave’s greatest of course! Altogether: there’s a star man waiting in the sky…

    I think you may have photoshopped half a girl’s leg off.

    Do you mean in the main image? It’s due to the half black half white stockings that look quite uncanny against the white background!
    If you’re talking about the left hand smaller image… I have no idea where the white stripe came from, it wasn’t like that before uploaded it! Ah, the wonders of photoshop…


  3. brad-t says:

    Oh man, you’re right. Those stockings aren’t well suited to a white background, haha!

  4. tokyotelephone says:

    Definitely not! I also love how they’re a direct copy of a pair of Chanel stockings from last year 😉

    I absolutely love the second coat, where can i buy it from???

  6. Tokyo Telephone says:

    It’s now old-season stock, so I’d suggest looking on Mbok or Yahoo Japan auctions & using a shopping service.
