A coat that make’s a statement changes a winter wardrobe in a big way, making even the most simple sweater and shirt, suddenly amazing. British designer Milena Silvano’s handmade coats and vests do that so perfectly. Using repurposed sheepskin combined with naturally dyed leather pieces, these beautifully made creations take two days of hand sewing to create. A stylist whose namesake label works hard to be both sustainable and ethical, Milena Silvano’s line is now sold in New York at one of our favorite boutiques, Beautiful Dreamers in Williamsburg. This winter we’re planning on skipping a big puffy coat for Milena Silvano’s Lilako Vest under and over almost everything we wear.
