The jackets drew a clear inspiration from the 90s and feature the same crushed velvet style that was popularized during that decade. Arriving in multiple colorways, these coats are sure to help one seamlessly transition into the colder season.

The velvet-clad coats range from puffer jackets to longer, more practical pieces ensuring there's a style to fit anyone's aesthetic. The jackets are available in both red, gray, blue, coral and black.
