The punchline here, is CAMEL. As in color, as in textile. Camel hair wool is an enduring fabric. I love the richness of its color- the beige has lots of yellow, and is one of the few beiges that doesn't drain the color from my olive skin tone. I think it looks classy, and have always wanted a great camel hair coat. I think I've finally found mine. This is a glorious beast of a coat, an oversize vintage wool coat with an opulent satin lining. It's loose fitting and big, and I love the detail in the back, that curve of the back belt- so insouciant and elegant, if you ask me.
The great thing about classics is that they look good no matter what era you're wearing them. This vintage coat is from the 1950s, but looks so fresh and modern still, very Celine, very Phoebe Philo's Chloe, circa 2010, with the clean lines, slouchy cut and simple but strong detailing of the offset big buttons in front, the swoop of a belt in the back.

It would definitely be harder than getting a camel through the eye of a needle, than to get me captured by the likes of Mr. Oliveria, or a Phil Oh, Wayne Tippets or thee Bill Cunningham, but a girl wearing a classic coat in camel hair, can definitely dream.
