The camel coat has been a wardrobe staple of almost every fashionable era. This season the caramel-hued classic gets updated in almost every fabric and style to give it a more contemporary look and feel. Fashion editor Alastair McKimm styles coats from Missoni, Miu Miu, Derek Lam, Hugo Boss, and Marc Jacobs (to name a few) for Harper’s Bazaar’s October 2009 issue.
Photographer Lachlan Bailey plays with shadow and light to create moody camel coat heavy shots. Fur, as it was on the runways, is featured heavily. A fox-fur vest, collar, handbags, and several fur trimmed coats are highlighted in the editorial. As for must-have accessories that accompany this season’s popular furry, camel coat, a waist-cinching belt helps to play with proportions and promotes feminine curves.
