Parisian brand Ventcouvert is best known for its beautifully understated coats and jackets. Cut from high-quality leathers and furs in timeless silhouettes, each piece has an alluring combination of cutting-edge fashion and pure nonchalance - so wonderfully French.
As anyone who’s ever tried on a beret knows, it can be hard to channel true Parisian chic. But jackets from Ventcouvert strike the perfect aesthetic of effortless elegance. Shrug on one of the label's designs with a pleated skirt in a dark hue, an asymmetric black jumper and a jauntily angled cap for a classic Left Bank look. Or transform a casual daytime outfit into luxurious eveningwear by turning one of the brand’s reversible jackets fur side out and wearing it with a colourful maxi dress, high-heeled court shoes and a leather clutch. Très chic.
Fur-lined women’s leather jackets and aviator-style coats are all over the catwalks at the moment. Ventcouvert has been making cover-ups like that since forever (okay, maybe not literally), and its collection is full of reversible and non-reversible takes on the style. Why not tap into the trend and add a touch of French chic to an old-school American ensemble? Simply pair a short Ventcouvert jacket with blue high-waisted jeans, cowboy boots and a plain white tee. Or, since the jacket-hanging-off-the-shoulders look doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon, drape a longline coat over a cropped black tee and skinnies. Ooh la la.
