There are many reasons for buying an outerwear piece from the purely functional - keeping warm and dry - to the simply aesthetic. At Zee & Co we always want you to look good, so although we do functional, it’s always fantastic looking functional. Designer brands are getting increasingly expert at just this; taking their couture roots and craft and investing into pieces that can be worn on the high street rather than just the catwalk, and producing high-end luxurious outerwear that manages to look good while keeping out the cold and wet.
Parisian-based Maison Margiela do this beautifully. Well known for their abstract concepts and avant-garde approach to design, you’ll remember their ads for covering their model’s faces and being set in unusual settings such as derelict metro train stations. There’s no urban grubbiness here, though, just great design! This range of coats, jackets and bombers are handmade from the highest quality of materials and are available in limited quantities only. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!
