The Regency Coat
A unique fitted double-breasted fully lined coat with four zips, which can be optionally opened to show a dramatic flair, revealing more of the lining for a wow factor. This is echoed again in the cuff. The Coat breast, in signature Gabriela Rose style, can be worn in two separate ways too: both edges to edging fold back military mode, or fold over, but still in a way reminiscent of the eighteenth-century highwayman. The inspiration for the coat came from a combination of the Regency dandy and elements of punk fashion with zips and chains. The object was however to create a new classic, which could be worn for a corporate workday in the city but transforms into a vivacious and exciting coat for the evening. Gabriela’s designs often incorporate such a chameleon-like transformation.
