Style On Trial: Jason Wu collarless feather coat


Feathers have been popping up on dresses for a while now, but Jason Wu has decided to take feathers out of the dress closet and attach them to this coat.

Now, clearly this is an "evening wear only" kind of coat, rather than one you'd wear every day (Can you IMAGINE the mess it'd get into on public transport?), but what do you think of it? Chic and a little bit different, or are there too many "Big Bird" overtones to this one for you? Perhaps the £5,400 price tag changes your opinion? Either way, tell us about it!

    I dig the concept and the top half of it, but the feathers weird me out a little.

    Looks more like a feather skirt *stuck to* a blouse. (So you can add that to the list of charges.)

    That looks more like a dress than a coat, and the feathered “skirt” portion is just too freakish for my tastes.
    Feathers are great for an accent, but that’s just too much featheriness for one article of clothing.

    I don’t think feathers and skirts work together very well.
    I kind of think it should be reversed…Maybe with a fluffy top and sleek bottom? It’d certainly be more flattering anyways!

    I truly thought this was an ugly dress until i reread the title…

    I like the concept of it. If you get lost a lot, a coat like this would be very handy…as the feathers on the floor would allow your friends to find you.
