I’ve donned the black and gold look on several occasions. During fashion week last season and to showcase my dangerously expanding collection of feline-themed adornments. It’s a popular look with yours truly so I thought I’d give it a winter twist.
I love this gorgeous coat from Ghanian-born designer Mimi Plange (it’s opulent, fabulously tailored and comes with Mimi’s trademark attention for super stylish and understated details). I took a stylistic liberty though. I’m actually sporting it backwards! I played with various cool ways to rock it and thought it looked fabulous that way!
The gold accessories showcase two French brands I love, Freelance for the shoes (aren’t these gold metallic go-go booties rad?) and Gérard Darel for the metallic leather clutch. The over-the-top chained belt is by Donna Karan. You need a bigger-than-life coat to not get upstaged by this bigger-than-life belt 😉 But I think these two were made for each other.
