Oh these are all lovely! What a fun cut. I especially like both the green and black ones at the end..especially the little pleating on the green one. xx

Erika said...

J'adore the cocoon look. I have actually been on the hunt for the perfect cocoon cardigan. I found one at Urban Outfitters, but made the mistake of not buying it. Now I'm back to square one. :(

Love these looks! Louis Vuitton has been a favorite of mine as of late! :)

Ela said...

So many beautiful coats! I wish I had the stature to carry them all of. I especially love the Viktor & Rolf. Looking forward to the cooler temps! xx

The Anthology said...

I need a new coat. Desperately. But I've been resisting fall for so long I can't bear to shop for one. It's like admitting defeat.

These are all gorgeous, though!

I never thought about a cocoon coat- maybe never even heard of that term til now! So thanks for enriching my fashion dictionary :)

I really like the forest green ASOS one.

Little Red said...

All of these coats are just beautiful! The cocoon coats create such a fabulous look!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

That black coat up there reminds me of the movie To Kill A Mockingbird when Scout is wearing the giant ham. Lol. ;)

dapper kid said...

Absolutely gorgeous shapes! Loving the Giambattista Valli, and wow, the sleeves on the Moschino are sooo beautiful. Ahhh and the pleating on the Viktor & Rolf is amazing!! Hope you're having a lovely day dear :)

I love the cocoon look - so cozy! I'm actually wearing a cocoon-ish cardy right now :P

Sher said...

that pleated coat is just gorgeous! I'm searching for a coat like the one I saw Angelina Jolie wear in The Changeling.

Leah said...

Cocoon coats... this I heart no doubt. I just wish the weather in my side of the planet will permit me to wear this all year round. I think I have to move to Alaska perhaps. LOL.

Cathy Voyage said...

I like the last two ones!

Petra Bellejambes said...

Some of these looks are a tad outre for me. Perhaps growing up in too too cold a place has dampened my senses and ruined coats for me...

With that said, darling, loving the DK and the Eileen Fisher. Both so wearable, and both designers that make me feel warm and loved...

Commence d'hiver!

Diego R. Wyatt said...

The cocoon looks is so intersting to me. I love the idea of solid structure over delicate layers. The Viktor & Rolf look is absolutely breathtaking. The structure is flawless. I also love the Moschino look and the Stella McCartney piece.

That last one is darling! I really wish that I could wear coats more, but alas Florida doesn't allow it.

Mo said...

These are adorable! I'd love to see someone pull off a cocoon STRAIGHT from the runway ;)

The Seeker said...

Love the Viktor & Rolf one.
Cocoon is a shape not very good to all shapes of bodies. I know I couldn't pull it of, unless it there's a belt.

Some stunning picks, CC

xoxo

Wana said...

Carrie said...

I see these jackets everywhere on the runway for fall. The models can pull it off but I don't think I can. Great post, Carrie.

pranksygang said...

Adorable collection:) i wish i have freezing winters here to wear those coats:)
i love the Black ... its lovely dear!!

HiFashion said...

Wow. I think the catwalk ones are a bit much for me, but the others are very nice. I definitetly need to think about buying one of these for winter.

Gabbi said...

Gorgeous coats dear CC! I'm in love with the Viktor & Rolf coat especially... looks straight out of 'Blade Runner' doesn't it? Terribly glamorous.

Zakuro Yugo said...

Top is voluminous and bottom is thin!
This opposite is beautiful.

rossovelvet said...

I'm still obsessed with my ultrathin figure so I have a problem with this type of coats... I just like ponchos because they don't make you look fat !

Though V&R's one is perfect.

Zevaa said...

Like the Donna Karan coat and the Eileen Fisher cardigan, really stylish and easily wearable pieces. Love their colors and shapes as well.

I love a good cocoon coat, but I've observed that it looks best on a really skinny person as it tends to give a roundish shape to a person.
