The big question for most architects, designers and hairstylists is: Function over form….which gets more weight?!
Most fashion of today has deep roots in function. The Pea Coat is no exception.
Sailors wore this style of coat as part of uniforms as far back as the 1830s until WWII in the 1940s. In the 1960s icon fashion designer, Yves St. Laurent, redesigned the coat with flashy gold buttons for women.
Today the coat can be found in practical materials like wool and classic colors or soft materials like fleece in non traditional colors with flair, shown above. Even this one takes poetic liberty by not following the traditional double-breasted style. Pea coats are great for Fall apple picking, football games or outings in the city. They look especially great with skinny jeans and boots or same-length dresses.
This one-of-a-kind, upcycled red pea coat is available now!
Stay cozy…for the functional part of you and wear pretty for the fashionable part of you!
