MFW Trend: Camel Coats

OCCASIONALLY an old faithful hits the runway and you somehow pass over it. Camel coats are nothing new, and easily pushed from the spotlight as bolshier red shearling and baby blue patent iterations get the front row snapping - but take a second glance. They're making a stealth bid for power for autumn/winter 2017. At Max Mara, whose claim on the camel coat is more comprehensive than most, the stand-out came with a matching headscarf, worn by model Halima Aden. At Dolce & Gabbana, camel came upholstered with boisterous roses. Fendi's camel coat came with delectable red top-stitching and F-logo buttons; while Bottega Veneta's was cool, calm, and double-breasted, with a little Forties kick. The biggest surprise? A camel coat on the runway at Versace, that fierce, feisty label with the monopoly on female empowerment. Camel's come over all uninhibited - wear it with anything.
