Coat Corner: Nanette Lepore ‘Mysterious’ coat

Nanette_lepore_coat_2The big “mystery” here is why Nanette Lepore decided to name this coat “Mysterious”. We can’t see anything particularly mysterious about it, but if you can, feel free to enlighten us…

Name aside, we really like the style of this coat, which doesn’t appear to have sacrificed anything in the way of warmth – well, the model looks cosy, anyway – in its quest to be stylish. And stylish it is, with that little gathered bow detail on the corner adding a bit of interest to the otherwise simple design. Unfortunately, it’s expensive, too: if you like this, you can buy it for $610 from Shopbop.

    To me, it sort of calls old Hollywood glamour to mind – and the enigmatic female roles portrayed by Greta Garbo, Katherine Hepburn and Rita Hayworth.. Perhaps that’s the “mystery” the name alludes to?

    I think you are so wrong about this raspberry coloured, giant bowed coat. You’ve all gone bow-crazy

    This is the most beautiful coat you have had on ‘coat corner’!
    I might like it in a dark green as well – that’d be classic but not black.
    I just wish I could afford it…

    I like this coat, color and all – even with the bow. 😉

    It’s kind of way too pricey for me, but I do like how the bow/collar is like an instant scarf!

    I love the color, but wouldn’t pay that much unless it came with heater attached!

    Love the colour, but I think the bow would be distracting, like giant fuzzy dice on the rearview.

    Usually I’m not a big bow fan (or even a little bow fan) but I LOVE this!
