INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
THE SPACE-AGE COAT WE'VE TAKEN A SHINE TO
By Eleanor Dunne, 6 December 2018
Dreaming of outerwear that will catapult your winter line-up into another world? Look no further than an intergalactic metallic coat. Tapping into FW18's futuristic trend, (not to mention the space-race theme of Ryan Gosling's latest flick, First Man), high-shine outerwear is here to help you boldly go where no trendsetter has gone before. Here are three ways to wear it now.
There was an astronomical amount of tinfoil-inspired outerwear this season, from Sies Marjan to Calvin Klein. German designer Philipp Plein sent his models out in a faux snowstorm, serving sporty-space realness via high-shine metallics like this silver puffer jacket. If ever there was a way to wear a sports bra in winter, this is it.
A metallic coat needn't always be so extra it has you reaching for your sunglasses – this street-styler shows it can be a laid-back look as well. Houston, you won't have a problem fitting this into your everyday vibe. Just throw it on over your weekend shopping outfit as you hop into town – plus, it’ll keep you extra safe, too, thanks to its reflective properties. Win-win.
Try it on
Wanna try it yourself? We've got just the jacket. Padded for extra warmth and blessed with a very practical hood, you'll feel on point in this holographic beauty – even in the harshest throws of winter. Try it out with straight-leg jeans and a graphic tee. Warning: aliens may mistake you for their mothership, but it comes with the territory when you're serving an out-of-this-world look.
