New Etonians - meet this season's most sought-after coats

New Etonians - meet this season's most sought-after coats

If you've ever been a customer of Favourbrook Womenswear, or have followed us for long, you'll recognise our Eton coat silhouette as a perennial highlight in our collections. It is a tailored style that is quite minimalist in the cut, which lends itself to more intricate design features.  It consists of a re-worked bodice and tailored pockets with back button detailing, all of which makes it a stunning option for elegant evenings, whether a sophisticated dinner, gala event, or a cocktail party you want to make an impression at. Finishing at the knee, and with a subtle flare from the waist, it's an extremely flattering cut that works with so many styles of dresses.

Eton coat Dark Green Delamere Silk Velvet

This season is a first, as we have created four sublime versions in a silk and rayon velvet cloth, combing the beautifully soft handle of both the natural silk and the synthetic rayon. It's rare to find 100% silk velvet outside of haute couture due to the eye-watering price of the fabric, but the addition of rayon delivers a rich plush fabric with a more muted shine, allowing for more ornate and delicate embroidery.

Available in Dark Green, Amethyst, Royal Blue, and Fox Brown each style has been embellished with the most intricate floral embroidery from an atelier right here in London. Words don't really do the handiwork justice, nor the plushness of the fabric which feels as good as it looks.

 Eton coat Royal Blue Rossetti Silk Velvet

It's a wonderful timeless style for chic evening events, and we would recommend layering it over one of our tonal silk dresses this season. Alternatively, it could also be worn with classic black cigarette pants and a black silk blouse, bringing a splash of autumnal colour to an otherwise monochrome look. Whichever way you style it, it's an investment piece you'll come back to season after season.
