Vivienne Westwood Navy Melton Asymmetric Button Top Coat
As winter looms ominously on the horizon and our sartorial rituals alter to adapt for cooler climes, a stylish cover-up is a top priority to pair with your warming woollens.
Classic, but delivered with a signature eclectic twist, Vivienne Westwood’s Melton asymmetric top coat is a sharp and stylish choice to see you though the cold-weather season.
From the grand dame of unconventional British style, this impeccably-cut coat has been crafted from a luxurious wool and cashmere blend cloth, featuring a unique construction with an off-centre button fastening and trademark scarlet-red lining.
Fashioned to a trim specification, the versatile navy-hued Melton coat casts a lean silhouette reminiscent of the frockcoats of Beau Brummel’s Regency-era dandies.
Frequently drawing inspiration from the prim-and-proper epochs of British sartorial history, Westwood takes traditional forms and fuses them with her unique formula of contemporary eccentricity.
A child of the original rebel era, Westwood became an infamous name in the 1970s after the opening of her shop SEX on Chelsea’s King’s Road, with then husband Malcolm McLaren, and to this day remains an enduring symbol of the British punk revolution.
Since her first foray into the world of fashion, Westwood’s business has gone from strength to strength, evolving into a global brand featuring a women’s and men’s mainline collection and several diffusion labels, each with their own distinctive personality.
Whilst from a designer renowned for clothing guaranteed to get you noticed, the AW12 Melton coat has a subtle quirkiness that is distinguished yet ageless in equal measure.
Ideal for layering over chunky knits and shirting, this beautifully made overcoat will showcase your off-beat sartorial credentials for many a winter to come.
