My third and last try at a Miu Miu Autumn 2007 coat in grey. Not a colour I want – I have too many dark coloured coats in my wardrobe already. But I thought heck, I’m there, I can actually have my hands on something and it might, just might work on me.
This coat was double breasted and very warm. But again, too boxy at the shoulders, that gave me a very “square” look from the front.
There were pockets in the front to keep the hands warm and I did like the way the skirted part of the coat moved when I walked.
Still, I thought the material was too heavy for my frame, so I passed on that based on colour and design actually!
Here’s another shot of the coat…
In this picture, you can see what I mean when I say that the coat is too heavy for my frame and too boxy in the front.
The pleated details of the skirted part is great though. And I do again, like the girlie look of this coat. But at that price, as all Miu Miu coats are, I think I’d expect more from this coat. It needs to make me look better!
It did however, look gorgeous if I wore it open. On the other hand again, I won’t be able to walk around with an open coat in the Swedish winter. So it was a sad departure for me from the Miu Miu store in London.
