Winter Is Coming

Photographer – Felix Laasme

The coldest season of the year starts in forty-eight days and as so, we’re introducing our windproof woollen coats.

We’ve always dreamed of an elegant coat that’d also be a worthy companion when it comes to the bitter climate of Northern lands. So we took the warmest wool one could find, cut it into a straight fitting silhouette, padded it with invisible windproof layers and lined the whole thing with sleek Italian viscose.

There are two styles – while one coat is constructed with a high collar to protect us from harsh Northern winds, the other is made with narrow winglike lapels that give the coat a lighter look.

What we also discovered is that coat is one of the earliest clothing words in English tracing back in its modern meaning to the year 1300, when it was written: “cote”, stemming from Latin “Cottus” meaning – the woollen clothes.

Our Cottus also has a complimentary suit crafted of light wool and therefore, is also suitable for the brighter time of the year.
