Very chic style, I like it in a jacket/sweater better versus a dress

Tights Lover said...

I really like the funnel collar style.

All excellent finds!

Erika said...

Congratulations Hanako66!

Love the Missoni Lavanda Metallic Dress - the neckline reminds me slightly of a cowl, a look that I'm totally loving at the moment! :)

mom & son said...

The Haute-Shopper said...

These are fab! I have a funnel collar winter jacket, but I'd love to get a dress or knit-top with a funnel collar as well. The Byblos one is so stylish! I've also seen funnel collars being sold as seperate pieces. Beautiful selection as always! Hope you had a fantastic weekend!

nookie said...

I need to get one:)

Vintage Me New You said...

So good for the next coming cold winter:)
I love volumes and heavy textures, though I am small and I don't look that great in those kind of clothes!

Besos,
Gia!

That Martin Grant collection was simply gorgeous, I loved most pieces including that coat. Also really like the pink J Crew cutie. xxx

OceanDreams said...

Oh all of these coats look so lovely, especially since I am cold right now!

Taylor Sterling said...

So a couple things:
1. I love the new header. So sexy!
2. I thought this wholw time I was following you and then realized you never came up on my dashboard! Now I am!
3. greta choices. I love the more wearable versions!!

Serg Riva said...

Sam said...

I love the fluffy coat third to last!...and the rusty orange velvet coat a bit further up - but the Benettons are the best!! Awesome stuff CC!

Jaime said...

Love the Preen coat. Hope you enjoyed your weekend. Oh and thanks for the shout out !! :)

Vanessa said...

I'm in love with a few of those coats...super cute!

Etrapar said...

Junya Watanabe scares me!
kisses

Intrinsically Florrie said...

Ah the Blugirl is so chic. I'd love to wear it, very ladylike.
It's not what I normally go for, but I'm also feeling drawn to the 'Preen Line laced funnel coat'. And it's not even floral!

Make Do Style said...

I love a funnel neck, I just got a dress from Zara with one and it is fab.

Kristin said...

As usual, Stella's got my number!

The Seeker said...

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Love this look darling!
A.F. Vandevorst HUGE-HUGE LOVE!!!
minus the horse shoes though...
Fab week CC ~xo*

Averill said...

Love a funnel collar for winter (and so much more flattering than a turtleneck).

Couture Cookie said...

I'm sitting here freezing - these pictures are all lovely! I must dig through my closet to fund some faux fur to bundle up with until my landlord realizes it's mid-fall and turns up the heat.

Great image selection as usual, xoxox.

miss cavendish said...

My winter puffer has a funnel neck, which I love. Cowls, however, make me cower--not my taste!

Jackie said...

Perfect spot for your circle scarf to sit in... nicely snug around your neck! What a warm thought!

Hunters Glory said...

Love funnel collars....pop that top!

;)

Maria Confer said...

Amazing new header!!

I love funnel necks, they frame the face so well.

Feelmore said...

I love all the funnel options! So many! Particularly in love with the Stell McCartney Tufted Coat... yummm

Sher said...

That neckline reminds of something from Jackie O era. Even Lilly Pulitzer came out with a dress with that funnel neckline.

CMA said...

CC, I am looking into that James Perse puff coat. : )

clarewbrown said...

Congrats to the winner! I love your new header, too! I love a strong collar, it adds such a great shape to an outfit. Though, I must admit I didn't like how the ones on the runway obstructed the models' beautiful faces! But hey runway is supposed to be wearable art... I am sure the designer tones it down for the rack :)

jess said...

I love the McQueen look.

Tiffany said...

Style Redux 2 said...

I love funnel collars because I get claustrophobic in turtlenecks and I love the look of these.

Amelia said...

I would love a funnel-necked coat :)

HiFashion said...

I love all of these. They're definitely the best way to stay warm!
