A delicate chiaroscuro effect is a key element of the new season’s artistic mood, and here is our first pick of the autumn highlights: the new pure silk devore kimono coat in two patterns in the same colourway, which manages to look drop-dead gorgeous and sophisticated at the same time. Wear them over a plain fitted dress in black or chocolate, dark red, cream, gold or the new shade of deep cobalt, with a plain clutch and heels: the result is relaxed, ethereal, exquisite.
They make an eye-catching solution for balmy evenings and party nights, trips to the opera and dinner dates, and weekends away, when you know you will need a cover-up but nothing else quite works. The pure silk kimono coat transforms an otherwise classic plain dress into something altogether more sophisticated and interesting. Furthermore, the elegant long style is highly flattering, with its long sleeves and elegant patterns. It is also well made and hand finished, with tasselled fringing and hand embellishment.
Choose from the Blenheim (scrolls and leaves) and the Woburn (leopard).
