The timeless appeal of the Westminster Coat

The timeless appeal of the Westminster Coat

Fashions ebb and flow, boom and bust, rise and collapse, but sophistication and elegance tend to stand the test of time. Our Westminster coat is one such garment that has remained true to form for many years and is the reason why so many of our customers keep returning to it. The combination of a slim-cut flattering silhouette, grown-on collar and delicate embroidery details is what gives the Westminster coat its timeless appeal.

While the silhouette is a constant, the details change from season to season as we accommodate new fabrics, inspirations, palettes and moods. The Autumn/Winter 22 collection naturally conforms to a darker, more romantic colour palette than the Spring/Summer season, featuring tones such as fox brown, deep forest green, dusty grey, marine blue, and black, all rendered in an array of luxurious silk velvet and cotton velvet fabrics.

But its in the details that the Westminster coat really shines - take the dark grey Allaire silk velvet version for example, embellished with stunning embroidery details rising up from the hem, with a contrasting Connaught silk collar and cuff facings, and piping detail. Or the delicately embroidered floral arrangement of the dark green Unger version, perfect for chic winter engagements.
