Permanent Collection





This oversized, unlined knit wool coat is ideal for layering, or worn on its own on a warmer night. With large pockets and a gentle dolman sleeve, its striking yet simple silhouette makes this coat feel like an outfit in itself. Meant to be worn loosely draped over the shoulders, this piece sits somewhere between coat and shawl.

The Barbara coat is named for artist Barbara Hepworth (1903–1975), the most influential British female sculptor of the 20th century and a leading figure in the Modernist movement both in Britain and internationally.

Please note: due to the oversized nature of the Barbara, we recommend taking one size down from your usual size. See the 'Size + Fitting' tab below for the most accurate measurements and descriptions by size.
