Miss Selfridge Velvet Coat
A rich, dark blanket of Gothicism is settling over the catwalks this season and the more spidery, opaque and mysterious the better. Lacy web-like underwear worn as outerwear featured in Dolce & Gabbana’s lace petticoats to John Galliano’s chiffon lace jackets. Mandy Barder picks today’s Daily eBay.
For AW09, lace has been paired with velvet. Military jackets, waistcoats and long coats are cropping up amidst a parade of floaty chiffons, sequins and midnight blues. Burberry Prorsum’s A/W 09/10 collection includes a beautiful inky crushed velvet ankle length coat. This Miss Selfridge velvet coat is a little shorter but looks just as sumptuous and even has shoulder pads, giving it an extra bit of savvy noughties chic. What really nails this coat to trends at the moment is that it’s actually a blend of black and deep purple and because of the crushed texture it gives it a bit of a glossy quality. Perfect for glamorous nights out and worn with clumpy black wedges, as seen on the models at Burberry Prorsum.
This fab velvet number is a size 12 and is going for an amazing £4.99. Auction ends 18/11/09
