Brilliant or bonkers? The coat taking the world by storm
Combinations are usually a good thing; peanut butter and jelly, bacon and eggs, the list goes on! However this latest combination everyone’s talking about has left us a little baffled. The puffer coat evening gown is taking the fashion world by storm, but start saving if you want to look like the stylish kid on the block, as this latest trend is selling for a cash crunching $2,710!
Brainchild of Italian brand Moncler and Maison Valentino creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli, the dress was released in October -just in titme for the following freezing months to kick in-and comes in a variety of forms from dramatic dresses to comfy capes available in a bunch of eyepopping colors.
Having been worn by many of the top celebs from Millie Bobby Brown to Monica Almanda, the brand is indeed making the fashion hybrid a thing. Being so cozy and snug, it’s a pretty practical item to shelter you from the extreme elements of winter, however you do run the risk of looking a bit like the Michelin man if you intend on sporting it!
Pulling off a chic yet comfortable look is indeed a bit of a task come this time of year, but is it worth the hype? Let us know what you think in the comments below! One plus, is that it does sort of fulfil our childhood dream of having a sleeping bag dressing gown – ultimate goals!
