Helen Coat Rouge
For many years we’ve been making our little Red Riding Hood hooded jackets each winter, but this winter we thought we’d give them a re-vamp! Helen is our new hooded coat we are really excited to introduce to you. She is part of our Golden Apple Range and made from the loveliest wool blend fabrics in vibrant colours.
FEATURES: Helen is our brand new hooded coat which we like to think of as the big sister to our classic hooded jacket. She has lovely shaping through the front and back panels for a perfect fit, side and back splits for extra hip room, and a lovely semi-circle pocket detail with buttons! We love the cute japanese cotton linings we have chosen (which coordinate with our covered buttons), in fun complimentary tones. If there is one fun winter coat you need in your wardrobe, Helen is it. We have made Helen a little longer than our traditional woollen jacket, so she is a versatile length with dresses, pants and skirts. She is semi lined, which means she isn’t too restrictive and you have a nice amount of give through the wool after a few wears. Full length practical sleeves which can be cuffed back also without seeing a lining.
HOW TO WEAR: This great little coat will be your go-to piece for winter. Throw it on the pick up the kids from school, wear it out for dinner, to work, to the park, the possibilities are endless. The slightly longer length is great for super chilly days, but also works well when worn unbuttoned too. The side splits and back split are great for extra hip room if wearing wool layers, fuller skirts or bulky items underneath. We love the panelling which gives you shape while looking good, the panels are shaped to fit your bust and flatter, and this coat will actually show off your waist instead of hiding it! We love Helen's practical deep pockets, capped off with great semi circle shaped pocket flap and button detail to match the ones down the front. Our favourite thing about Helen is her cute cotton lined hood, which is surprisingly practical in winter, sheltering you from the cold, wind and rain. We use ours so much around these parts, because who likes to ruin their hair int he rain before the day has even started? Helen is the ideal shape and length for a skirt/stocking combo, but also works so well with work pants, jeans on weekends and also a longer length skirt too. Helen is a relaxed fit, meaning you can fit a wool layer underneath her in your normal size. Pair her with our merino wool Clementine cardies and you will have the most perfect snuggly outfit for winter.
Sizing: Small, Medium, Large, XLarge. These are an accurate fit with the small being a standard ten at the most, so if you want to wear several bulky layers underneath you may want to size up one size.

FABRIC: 60% wool 40% viscose. Heavy weight wool with a smooth finish, low itch. Cotton half lining inside the coat featuring Jos Prouste fabric.
