With the official arrival of fall now upon us and temps steadily plummeting south towards freezing, sartorial priorities for many of us include picking out a worthy winter coat. A Kind of Guise appears ready to answer the call, fashioning a statement piece that intersects crafty utilitarianism with stylistic flare. The Munich-based label articulates artisanal craftsmanship, informing many of its pieces with unique textile compositions and quirky silhouette formations. A standout item from the brand’s forthcoming FW20 collection is the Patron Parka.
Available in both “Arctic White” and “Dark Sapphire” options, A Kind of Guise set out to address style, substance and sustainability within the context of contemporary design. Fashioned from 100-percent recycled post-consumer fabric, the oversized parka features padded quilts throughout, with a detachable hood, two spacious flap pockets on the front and a small slip compartment concealed within. Last but certainly not least, the coat is finished with a water-repellent coating—ideal for fending off Mother Nature’s worst.
