The past few years I've handled Canadian winters with my Moncler Mengs jacketand my mink fur jackets... But I felt like my closet needed a sporty, long parka.. Something I could layer with and throw on top of anything.
As you know, the Moncler Mengs jacket is as sexy as a puffer jacket can possible get.... It hugs my curves like no tomorrow...
This is a little late posting as its pretty much winter but I wanted to post about my new purchase for fall!
Its Moncler Olympe, a frilly trench coat style coat.
I love how the coat is a feminine take on the average trench. Buckle closures on the arms give it a trumpet style design. The frill makes the coat feminine but not over-the-top.
Some improvements on the design would've made the trench a lot more functional though. I only realized these aspects after I bought the jacket. It would be that the buckle at the waist is faar too short for it to be worn tied nonchalantly like the pic above. The buckle looks best done up properly but its so annoying to have to untie and re-tie every time. Also, the jacket doesn't look very nice when it isnt buttoned up and tied. the frill is heavy so it weighs the front down and flaps around like a dead fish.
All negative aspects aside, its still a special trench coat but maybe not a wardrobe staple.
