It’s bold, it’s loud, and it’s going to turn the volume up on everything you wear it with to 10.
Since going solo at Valentino, designer Pierpaolo Piccioli has ushered in a new era of menswear at the Florentine house with a point of view that’s one part ’60s Italian cinema and one part punk with a pinch of hippie. And the results rarely disappoint, especially when they’re crafted in some of the finest fabrics on planet Earth. This coat contains all the hallmarks of Piccioli’s vision but would seamlessly fit into any wardrobe. If you’ve got the cash, it’s a no-brainer buy.
When it comes to fall outerwear, there are the unimpeachable classics (the camel coat, the double-breasted navy overcoat), the function-first jackets (see: puffy parkas), and this stellar topcoat that’s in a league of it’s own. It’s loud without overpowering whatever you wear with it. It fits perfectly into the more-is-more menswear moment we’re in. And the silhouette can best be described as tailored-but-slouchy, which is what you want when your overcoat needs to look as good over a suit as it does with your favorite hoodie. The only rule you really need to consider with a coat like this is how best to receive all the compliments that will come your way.
