I love the embellishment on this coat – it’s one of those stop-and-ask coats – as in I’m walking down the street and women will literally stop and ask me where it’s from! You don’t even need to think about what’s underneath when you have a coat like that.
Wrapped up in roses: editor Caroline Issa chose the Floral Folk embroidered coat from the autumn/winter 2013 collection for Matthew’s Kids Company dinner at aqua shard this week. A labour of love, 1,800 beads make up a single rose. They are hand-embroidered onto the bespoke jacquard fabric, created specially for the collection in a Suffolk-based mill.
