This refined, subtly asymmetrical, boiled wool coat with luxurious, silk-lined sleeves has a generous funnel collar and belts at the natural waist. Narrow through the sleeve and shoulder, with pockets, Yvonne can be worn open or cinched. While it’s the most feminine silhouette in the collection, the slightly rustic, nubbly texture of the boiled wool gives it the kind of versatility that allows for a day spent half in the city, half at the beach.
The Yvonne coat is named for the French novelist and editor Yvonne Baby (b. ca.1935). She was the cultural editor, and first female editor, at Le Monde from 1970–1986. She is the author of nine books and the recipient of the prestigious Prix Interallié, awarded for a novel written by a journalist.
