For the love of Nicole Kidman's Undoing coats...

If you missed the brilliant HBO series The Undoing last year then we won't spoil the plot of this excellent psychological thriller starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant. A modern 'whodunnit', The Undoing is gripping from episode to episode as you try to wrap your head around who the perpetrator of a vicious murder might be. But one gem we are very happy to reveal is Nicole Kidman's outerwear wardrobe which is replete with some quite amazing winter coats.

At Favourbrook, we are no strangers to bold Autumn/Winter outerwear. In fact, we pride ourselves on creating statement coats and jackets in some of the most luxurious fabrics, not least velvet, the qualities of which really come into their own in the darker months. The fabric is plush, tactile, can be moody or romantic or playful - it has many characters depending on how you wear it.

Kidman's character in The Undoing appears to have received the memo! Throughout the series she wears a succession of stunning big coats, each one acting as de facto armour against the backdrop of a cold New York winter but also as a barrier from the chaos unfurling all around her. From a remarkable lime green hooded cover-up to a stunning burgundy belted wrap, each one of Kidman's coats sings with 90s New York glamour and decadence.

There is something altogether empowering about their scale and colour, even the darker tones which seem to envelope her in a protective moodiness. And while the lime green number certainly had folks divided (putting it lightly), one can't deny that Kidman's on-screen wardrobe played into our collective wardrobe fantasies!

This season at Favourbrook, we've created our outerwear with the very same principles of sophistication, elegance, luxury and protection, with velvet at the very core of what we do. It is our favourite winter fabric as you might have guessed by now, thanks not only to its outward allure (that tactility!) but also its reassuring weight and depth. One truly feels wrapped up in velvet. It is unique.

We have created a number of different styles this year, from the svelte long-line styles of the Duster, Carnaby and Long Swing coats to the shorter, more angular Eton and Therese coats. Whether you're looking for a plush coat to fall into, or something more succinct and fitted then our collection will certainly have something to pique your interest.
