Octavia's Capelet Coat



Color: Navy Coral Plaid
Product Details

Tuesday in Yorkshire.


Octavia drives much too fast toward York, where she wants to introduce to me her favorite bookstores—Minster Gate, Fossgate, Grimoire—before I catch my flight.

In lieu of bracing myself for every turn and twist, I focus instead on her caped coat.

I find it's not-so-distantly related to an Inverness coat. Perhaps once removed. Something out of film noir, but not from the shadows.

More lighthearted. Still beautiful, perfectly warm.

Not unlike my driver.


Octavia’s Capelet Coat (No. J7935). Two elegant looks in one seasonal showstopper. First there’s the gorgeous bias cut houndstooth plaid coat. Striking enough on its own, but then we added a matching detachable capelet. The effect is quite dramatic. Tells a story. Faux horn buttons at front placket and collar tab. One oversized button at neck to attach the capelet. Angled flap pockets. Inverted box pleat at back. Imported.
