We’ve said till we were blue in the face, look towards the East…Eastern Europe that is, where fashion is booming and originality is a staple. A while back we featured some great brands from Tbilisi, Georgia which is burgeoning as the fashion capital of Eastern Europe. We also harped on about one of our favorite European boutiques based in Kiev, well we will continue to harp, we can’t help it.
Enter The Coat by Katya Silchenko, a Ukraine-based ready to wear label that we are seriously obsessed with. At the crossroads of Victoria Beckham, Burberry and Bottega Veneta this to-die-for brand is still affordable. A dress will set you back a few hundred dollars..
The name of the brand is perhaps telling of what it is most known for, its coats. Classic styles in beautifully original proportions means that these timeless staples pack enough fashion punch while still remaining relevant season after season.
Established in 2014 by Katya Silchenko, the brand has a strong social media presence which makes it easy to find, and what a find it has been! Check out Katya’s sports-inspired Fall 2019 collection. In her own words, “The collection shows us one day of a modern woman –– morning workout, work and cocktail evening. This way the collection begins with sport items that gradually with details are transformed into elegant evening outfit”, says the designer Katya Silchenko.
Harmoniously combining The COAT’s signature feminine silhouettes, the cut’s structural lines and functional elements of sportswear, The COAT by Katya Silchenko remained true to itself by showing fabrics’ roughness in brand’s iconic dresses and skirts. Thus, for example, the feminine skirt was completed with leather pieces and external pockets. Happy viewing!
