Okay, it’s here. The main event. Fashion lovers the world over will tell you that they love how social summer is and that’s all that really matters. They’re lying. All summer long, they’re counting down the minutes until it’s acceptable to buy investment coats. It’s likely the most you’ll spend on something this season, but it’s one item where spending a bit more really counts.
Of course, one side of the equation is the aesthetic. Many of the best investment coats are made by luxury houses using the finest fabrics and experimenting with unique techniques. We’ve got selections from AMBUSH and Sacai that exemplify this luxurious drama perfectly.
On the other hand, when you’re looking to drop some more money on your outerwear, utility is a big consideration. Is the piece waterproof? Is it durable? Selections from Moncler Genius and Arc’teryx slot naturally into this luxury-technical niche.
Whatever you look for in your investment coats, Luisaviaroma has something that fits the bill. That’s why we teamed up with the Italian retailer to round up 9 of the best investment coats for fall and winter.
