After the Chanel show this season, its seems plastic is going no where. Its in, coats, trousers, hats. If you’re confident enough to wear it, its all waiting for you.
At the start of the year I bought my black vinyl coat from Topshop, and yes I let the matrix jokes roll in. But I loved it, the compliments I got, the ‘oh I would love to have the guts to wear that’, because it does take guts, and it pays off. I remember going into the Selfridges and the sales girls mistaking it for some brand I cant even pronounce. It was a hit.
So this winter go all out. Longer coats, double vinyl even if you dare. Its the perfect way to dress everything up, the jacket with uber basics underneath, or a pair of plastic trousers with a band tee for your work Christmas party?
