Dark and Stormy: In The Mood for Velvet

As the leaves begin to change and a crispness fills the air, it's time to welcome back the season of opulence and sophistication. Autumn and winter offer a canvas for true elegance, and what better way to embrace it than with luxurious velvet? At Favourbrook, we believe that dark-toned velvet coats are the epitome of sophistication, so allow us to share with you the allure of this regal fabric with a look at our exquisite dark velvet coats.

The Allure of Velvet: A Tribute to Romanticism

Velvet, with its softness, depth, and plush texture, has been a fabric of choice for those who appreciate the finer things in life, while encapsulating the essence of romance and elegance. The rich, dark tones of velvet, from aubergine to plum, from deep black to navy, evoke a sense of mystery and drama. It is the fabric that whispers tales of bygone eras, where opulent balls and candlelit soirées were the order of the day, an yet it is thoroughly modern at the same time.

Velvet, being inherently warm and cozy, is the perfect choice for autumn and winter. It provides both comfort and style, making it the ideal canvas for creating enchanting outfits that will turn heads wherever you go. Whether you're strolling through the vibrant streets of a European city, attending a grand gala, or hosting an  intimate dinner, our dark velvet coats are the epitome of elegance.

Styling Velvet Coats: A Touch of Glamour

While dark velvet can be worn to great effect during the day, it's in the evenings that this sumptuous fabric really comes into its own, mostly down to the fact that it looks radiant under the lights. Our Long Swing Coat in Black Gethin Silk Velvet truly comes alive, with its flowing silhouette draping gracefully over evening gowns, adding an air of glamour to your look.

Or you can channel your inner royalty with the Eton Coat in Amethyst Bouverie Silk Velvet. This coat's deep, aubergine hue is perfect for grand events and formal affairs, elevated even further by the stunning floral embroidery that climbs gracefully from the hem.

The Virginia Jacket in Black Gold Brynn Silk Velvet offers a modern twist. This shorter tunic-style coat can be worn with a little black dress in the evening, but could equally be paired with black jeans and ankle boots for a gothic-inspired aesthetic that's stylish and comfortable.

Whichever style of coat you choose, the dark palette of black, navy, and aubergine, combined with a statuesque silhouette will guarantee a look of unrivalled elegance.
