LC Kate's Coat
In our desire to be cool and restrained, have we lost something along the way?
Some panache, perhaps?
Even if you didn’t know Katherine Hepburn was Katharine Hepburn, she got your attention when you saw her in the neighborhood.
In that larger-than-life herringbone coat she’d wear.
The way it would swing open accenting that already distinct walk of hers.
You knew that was her “go-to coat” when you saw her emerging from her five-story brownstone on 248 East 48th Street in New York City.
She always looked like she was going places, even if it was just to the hardware store on 50th and 2nd to get a socket wrench.
(She was handy that way.)
Kate’s Coat (No. 2897). Fully lined replica of the authentic 40s swinger. Bold herringbone in Italian wool. Attitude starts from that impressive button. Drapes down from the shoulders where the body of the coat takes over and swings out and away around the hips and legs.
Other details: Gathered sleeve caps. Raglan seam detail. Two welt pockets.
“Who is that woman?”
Could be you.
